Hi cardmakers and friends! Here we are on Day Six of this 2019 Snowflake Card Series! Typing 2019 and thinking it’s November makes me say to myself, I am not ready for 2020! I’m not ready for Christmas either! lol
I’m sharing two cards today…both CAS but a little bit technique-y! ‘Collage’ and Inlaid die cutting anyway!
This first one is with the Starlight Snowflake Collage die… I think I overlooked it when it came out! :O I don’t remember using it but I forgot to search here, to see if it came up.
I saw a card on IG that I loved but I didn’t have a die that would do the cuts so it looked right. While looking through dies, I found this one and tried it and fell in love with it’s pure CAS-ness. Once again that pop of white!
Silent Night is from the Typewriter Holiday Sentiments clear stamp set. I heat embossed it in white on the label that falls out of the new Antique Label die sets.
My next ‘blue’ card, I hope you can see.. the inlaid Bauble Snowflake Corner die and the inlaid Bauble Snowflake down in the right bottom corner. I think it will show for sure in the video tomorrow.
I die cut five of the Bauble Snowflake from the Bauble Snowflake Frame die set, glued them together and stuck a little silver brad in the center. Oh yay! One more brad used out of the million or so! haha Then I glued that in the center of the inlaid Bauble Snowflake Corner die.
Before you think, NO WAY, I’m here to tell you, inlaying this was very simple! Just be sure you have a pick up tool!
Maybe you can see better in this close up.
The sentiment is from the Mistletoe Swag clear stamp set.
I did some spattering with white Gouache and a little white ink blended around to give the look of some snow flurries!
All this snowflake posting has made it cold here in Iowa! I know, I’m rolling my eyes too. 😀
I’ll finish up and take myself off to bed!
Thank you so much for joining me here for Day Six! I’ll see you again tomorrow…a festive card and the promised video! (nothing fancy)
