Here is the supply list and instructions:There is not anything I enjoy more than snow, when I am by a warm fire place. LOL. So it is not surprising that I love making cards with snowflakes, snowmen and back snow. Stamp set Beautiful Blizzard meets Wacky Wednesday to present to you a new way to make your Christmas cards shimmer and shine. Stampin’ Up new shimmer paint mixed with Balmy Blue ink can create a blizzard and beautiful snowflakes.
I know this card is in motion, but you will like it more when you see it in the video. Enjoy the details of how to make this card shimmer and shine.
Here is the supply list and instructions:
1-Cut 1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 Balmy Blue to 4 1/4 x 11. Then cut a second sheet to 1 1/2 x 11. Score both sheets at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. A piece of Whisper white that is larger enough to stamp the 3 snowmen is all you need. You will only need a 2 x 2 1/4 scrap of glimmer paper.
2-Using Balmy Blue ink stamp one side of both sheet with either of the two blizzard stamps. I recommend using a stamp off stamp on technique. This will keep the ink from being too dark.
3-Next using the Frost White Shimmer Paint on a dauber, dab the snowflake stamp then stamp. This should be done all over both sheets of balmy blue card stock.
4-Stamp, color and fussy cut the 3 snowmen from the Spirited Snowmen stamp set.
5-To put the card together, reverse the base card with the strip. This will have the score ends opposite each other. When putting down the ends be sure to not glue pass the fold.
6-To give the center snowman and woman the ability to stand in the middle, fold a piece of balmy blue and attache to the center of the opening.
Beautiful Blizzard meets Wacky Wednesday
Here is another card I made using the same technique. Only this time I used the Beautiful Blizzard die cut. Using the negative and positive; this card is beautiful.
The inside uses the positive of the framelits. Due to the detail of this die cut, I would recommend using the precision plate when running it through the Big Shot.
