Frosty Friends White on White

posted in: Blog, janet 0

Hello, I am so proud of this card, and a bit sad that I can’t make many more Christmas cards.  Are you enjoying the holiday season?  What are your favourite cards to make? Let in know in the comment section below.

I used Neenah Solar white card and trimmed it to 11 x 14 cm and embossed with the Lawn Fawn Snowy backdrops die.  To emboss with your metal dies in the Big Shot you need to use Tab 1, a cutting plate, an embossing mat, your card and die, and the top cutting mat.  The embossing mat will make the die push into the card – emboss – instead of cutting.Frosty-Friends

On another piece of Neenah Solar white I stamped Mr Frosty, created a mask for him then stamped Mrs Frosty.  I coloured them in with Nuvo Alcohol markers and cut out around Mr and Mrs Frosty, leaving a small border and cut the ends to create a snowy bank for them to be standing on.  I adhered some Stick It double sided adhesive to the back of a black scrap of card and die cut Seasons from the Snowflakes die set. I used Stick It because this is such an intricate and tiny die and this adhesive sheet is the easiest way to get some adhesive on the back of it.  I finished the sentiment by stamping “Greetings”.  Before I add any foam tape I remembered to add some details to the hats, scarf, bow and hand muff with a white glaze pen.

Frosty-FriendsI popped this piece up with foam tape so there would be a nice defined separation from the white on the background and the white border around Mr and Mrs Frosty.  For a bit more interest I added some Nuvo enamel accents in White Blizzard and Crystal Glaze.
