Handmade Christmas Series 2016: Card 10 Sparkling Snowflakes

Hello!  Today's card is the final card of my Handmade Christmas Series 2016.  I love this card because it's so lovely and suitable for any winter holiday or occasion.  I used an alcohol ink panel to stamp and die-cut my snowflakes. I have a video on my YouTube channel demonstrating how to do alcohol ink panels if you're interested in learning more about them linked here.  I used My Favorite Things Snowflake Sparkle card kit to create this and several other cards as well.  I used two stitched rectangle dies to die-cut the frame from silver glitter paper.  After heat embossing the sentiment and snow, I ink blended light blue over the heat embossing utilizing the emboss-resist technique.  I stamped, heat embossed and die-cut the snowflakes and finished the card by putting it all together.  Here is the video tutorial on my YouTube channel; I do apologize as it isn't quite as complete as my normal videos.  I had some footage gremlins steal some footage, but there was enough to demonstrate the important components.  My supply list is below.

MFT Snowflake Sparkle Card kit (stamps, dies, blue ink)
Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock
Alcohol ink panel
Wow Sparkling Snow embossing powder
DCWV Silver glitter paper
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies
Foam squares

This card was created using the same MFT card kit; Snowflake stamps and dies and sentiment dies.  I also used another alcohol ink panel.  After stamping, heat embossing and die-cutting the snowflakes in a diagonal direction down the middle of the panel, I used my paper trimmer to make a diagonal cut down the middle of the panel.  I used an embossing folder to create the sheet music background and ink blended Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink over the sheet music panel.  After attaching the sheet music panel to the card base with scor-tape, I adhered the bottom half of the alcohol ink panel and fit the die-cut snowflakes back into the the panel creating an in-laid die-cut look.  I adhered the sentiment with Tombow Mono-Multi liquid glue and the card was complete.

Thank you so much for joining me today and I hope you and yours a safe, happy, joyous Christmas and New Year.  See you in 2017!

Much love,
