Hi there Friends, Fellow Crafters and Visitors, Jennifer back again.
Today I would like to share a card I made for Imagination Crafts in September 2012 and it uses their Snow Globe stamp, which I'm not sure is still available and their Christmas Scrolls stencil which I think is very pretty. Are we all ready? off we go then.
Make a base card from red card stock. Matt a piece of beige card onto the red, leaving a small border of red showing. Cut a piece of black card slightly smaller than the beige and cut out a semi-circle from the bottom right leaving some beige card showing in the semi circle. Stamp 'Merry Christmas' in the semi-circle using a black ink pad. Fix the black card to the base card.
Cut a piece of white card the same size as the stencil and lay the stencil on top. Dab the Versamark through the design on the stencil using cut n' dry foam. Remove stencil and heat emboss using clear embossing powder and a heat gun. Rub the distress inks over the design. Remove the excess ink from the embossed parts with some kitchen roll. (The embossed parts should act a a resist). Cut out a semi-circle from the bottom right of the design, slightly larger than the black semi-circle. Fix this design onto the black card using double-sided tape.
Cut out and emboss a border strip from black card using the Spellbinder's Ironworks border die and a die-cutting machine. Glue this across the centre of the base card.
Cut out the Lace` die, colour it with the distress inks and glue this to a black circle, then onto the base card using sticky foam pads to add some dimension to the card.
Stamp the Winter Scene stamp onto some white card. Colour this with the distress inks and from it, cut out a circle which will fit onto the centre of the lace` die-cut. Glue this to the centre of the die-cut. Use a fine point - some scissors or scalpel blade to scrape away the top surface of the card. i.e., where the snow would be lying, rooftops, trees, bridge top etc., Cut out and emboss the ivy leaves and colour with distress ink. fix to the lace` die cut.
Well that's all for now. I'll be back soon, I hope you will be too!! Thanks for stopping by to visit, we appreciate it.
Until next time, be good and happy crafting of course lols.
