This is a card I made casing Pam124, the Featured Stamper today on SCS. I kept the same basic layout and used the same stamp set, but changed the sentiment, the colors and added snow by embossing in three different ways (Thanks Mel!! ) You can see Pam’s card HERE.
Please see Mel’s fabulous post on how to create snow by embossing three different ways HERE. How fun! And much easier than I thought it might be.
I used River Rock card stock and stamped my image in Memento rich cocoa. I used a white pencil crayon to add in some snowy highlights on the branches and trunk. Then, I added more white around the base of the tree before stamping the Cornish Heritage Farms backgrounder stamp (Twinkle Twinkle) in white pigment ink and embossing in white embossing powder. As in MEL’s tutorial, I used a souffle pen to add more “snow” around the trunk and across the top of the landscape, sprinkling on ep and heat embossing. The final step was to sprinkle embossing powder ever so lightly over the sky and heat embossing from underneath the paper. That way the ep doesn’t blow off. I love how it looks like a softly blowing snow when it’s finished.
The embossed panel is matted with real red card stock and layered onto a white top fold card base. I’ve punched the corners using my treading water border punch. I center the corners of the paper into the middle of the border punch to use it this way.
The sentiment is from Imaginisce Snag’ em Stamps. The main image is from Stampin’ Up! (Branch Out)
Thanks for stopping by and have a creative day! As always, if you have any questions or comments I’m happy to hear them.
