While I admire cards that have lots of embellishment, I’m not actually very good at producing my own, so my card this time is a CAS one, with minimal layering and embellies using dies, stamps and embossing folder I got free in a magazine. It’s mainly white on white, which makes it a bit hard to photograph, so I would recommend clicking on the pic to get a larger version!
On the base of the card (which is an A5 folded portrait) I stamped the words Let it Snow in versamark ink, and then covered with with white sparkle WOW embossing powder and heat embossed it. Into the corners of the card I placed a single AB gem.
I used a hunky dory mirri mat as the base for my topper, and on top of that I used some blue speckled paper. Finally, I ran a piece of white card through an embossing folder after having covered one side of the inside of the folder with versamark ink. When I got the card out of the folder, the versamark ink was transferred to the debossed part of the image, so I covered that in the same white sparkle WOW embossing powder and heat embossed it. This gives a really cool letterpress finish…
Earlier, using the free die, I had cut out 2 snowflakes, one from white card and one from the centre of the hunkydory mirri mat (what can I say, I’m tight…!) and I stuck them onto the edges of the layered topper.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto some white card, which I layered onto another part of the mirri mat base that I had die cut using a label shape. The last touch was to put 2 more AB gems in the holes at each side of the label.
I hope you like this card – and give the letterpressing a go as it is really effective!
