Today, I have a card that was lots of fun to make, even tho it was a little time consuming.
It uses all Stampin' Up!® products and includes some retired stamps plus lots of different accessories. I've been experimenting a little with stamping on the Clear Window Sheets and find that using the Stazon works very well. I also added a little Dazzling Diamonds when the ink was still wet and it seems to have stayed put!
The finished card!
I've used one of my favourite retired Stampin' Up! stamps for the card, but you can use any image that will cover the base. Likewise you can use a square or rectangular cut out shape and run it through your Big Shot.
Here are the steps used in making the card.
|Fold the card to your chosen size. Open out and cut circular shape with the Big Shot die|
|Stamp your image in Basic Black and water-colour with an Aqua Painter or Blender Pen. I chose Monochrome, but you|
could do multi colouring as well
|Stamp snowflakes randomly on the Window Sheet using Stazon White. Sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds while still wet. Set aside to dry.|
|Ensure Window Sheet is smaller than the Embossed overlay and adhere with Sticky strip on top of the base card.|
|Position the stamped and coloured image on top of the Window sheet. Adhere with Sticky Strip|
|Adhere the embossed card front over the top leaving a narrow border of the base card showing.|
Hope you enjoyed the card and that you'll have a go at making one yourself. Try a variety of images and even translate this technique to Birthday cards (could have balloons instead of snowflakes) or cards for other occasions.
Until next time
