I really went to town on the pictures today to tell the story of these cards, so much more of a pictorial than a tutorial. Definitely let me know in the comments if you were able to follow along. The cards are uncomplicated, but have a several adorable steps that take you from start to finished.


 

Today's projects will start with coloring the snowmen and gifts, so break out your markers of choice and bring these cuties to life. If you are using COPIC Markers, here are the colors that you will need to recreate these colors:




My markers need a bath but I really like this particular rainbow of happy colors!

Cut and emboss your cardstock

The plain cardstock colors inspired the color palette for the card. You will need 2 pieces of white A2 cardstock and 1 piece of purple cardstock. A2 = 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Emboss the purple cardstock using the Faceted Snowflakes folder.


Inkblend using Pawsitively Saturated Bubblegum Ink



Stamp Tree and Snowflakes in Smoke Ink and Sentiment in Taffy

I placed my snowmen on the card front temporarily so I could see where I wanted the trees and sentiment positioned.



Pop up the snowmen with foam tape, attach to the card front and adhere jewels to accent the sentiment



Here's a close-up of the AFTER with the snowmen and the pearls. :-)



Add touches of Stickles to the trees and grey snowflakes to give a little winter frost.


When dry pop-up the stenciled layer on top of the purple embossed card front and adhere to the card base.

Let's make it Lovelies!


Apply Glitz Glitter Gel through the stencil on white cardstock

On of the things I love about the Glitz Glitter Gel is that it drys so quickly that you hardly have any waiting time! So be sure to give your stencil a bath immediately after you are done applying the gel to the cardstock.


I had an owwie on one of my fingers, so I used a wet rag to clean my stencil than fully immersing it into water.



Die-cut the stenciled card front



Pop-up the oval, snowman and gifts with foam tape



Stamp and die-cut the sentiments on white and smoke cardstock in Surf ink



Layer the embossed card layer onto the card base, adhere the stenciled layer, snowman and gifts



Adhere the sentiments and jewels as shown



All this texture makes me happy!



And I a pop of color makes everything better!



And we are done Lovelies!!!
