And NOW, let's check out my July 2017 Reveal "Christmas in July" project
I fell in love with the Crystal Snowflakes stamp set. I created the card panel, and stamped one of the snowflakes in blue ink. Then, I blended some light blue distress ink along the edges to tone down the white cardstock. I stamped the larger snowflake in blue ink, and slightly offset it using a stamp positioner, and stamped it again with Versamark Ink. Then, I sprinkled on Sapphire embossing powder, and heat set it. I matted the panel with black cardstock, and adhered it to a white cardstock base.
I also added in some Crystal Drops to parts of the embossed large snowflake. I squeezed on Caribbean Ocean and White Blizzard drops, which really made the snowflake even more fun!
I love using Tear-ific Tape to make glitter strips, and this card was perfect for it. I laid down a strip of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape towards the bottom of the card. I then laid down a strip of 1/4" Tear-ific Tape above it, and another below it. I pulled away the release paper on the 1/8" Tear-ific Tape, and sprinkled on Mermaid glitter, and burnished it in. Then, I removed the release tape from the 1/4" Tear-ific Tape and sprinkled on Waterfall glitter, and burnished it in as well. These two work so well together! I love these glitters!!
I stamped out one of the sentiments, using Versamark Ink, and then sprinkled on Sapphire embossing powder, and heat set it. I die cut the sentiment with an oval die, and matted it with black cardstock. Then, I squeezed on little drops of White Blizzard Crystal Drops all around the edge. This looks like little rivets in real life and is really cool!
I squeezed a few little dots of Crystal Drops on the edges of the card, and this card was done. It was fun to make, and I love all the colors. I know you will love this stamp set too!
Our next stop on our July 2017 Reveal Blog Hop is Shona. She ALWAYS makes the most beautiful cards, I know you will love what she has in store for you!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
