Snowflake Flurry

Good Morning Crafters

We hope you all enjoy the show on Friday and the lovely techniques Sue showed us.

Today we have a tutorial by Lindsay a Christmas card.

Imagination Crafts Products

Sparkle Gel
Snowflake Flurry Stencil
Sentiment from Owl Decoupage Stamp Set



Take a piece of ice blue shimmer card and tear it to measure six by six square, mix Sparkle gel with blue ink and using the Snowflake Flurry stencil spread the Sparkle gel through the stencil on to the card stock using a palette knife.



Next stamp a sentiment from the Owl decoupage stamp set on to more of the shimmer card. Then cut out a card blank using a large die and create layers from white card and Hessian fabric to matt and layer the card.


Layer the pieces of the card together and cut out two strips of the Hessian and two strips of blue satin ribbon, cutting the lengths so that they decreased in length alternating between the ribbon and Hessian.


Take the 3 largest pieces of ribbon and Hessian sticking the ends together to make loops and then putting a dab of glue in the middle of each so that you have 3 figure 8 shapes.

                      

Stick loops on top of one another and used the final smallest piece of Hessian to wrap around the middle, gluing it in to place and securing it with a wooden clothes peg until the glue dried.


 Finally, when the glue had died take the little baubles on wire (which were salvaged from the ends of last years xmas crackers) twisted them around the centre of the bow and then stuck the bow in to place on the card.


The finished card, a beautiful Christmas card.
