Hello everyone, Alice here. Today I would like to show you another winter project. For this card I started working with the Igloo and the Pinguin dies both from earlier releases from Joset. I actually never made any winter creations before. I started doing this last year and I can tell you, it’s really great fun!
Let me show you how I created my card.
I started to die cut a star out of patterned paper. To cut the start I used the 1452 Fitted Stars set. I used ModaScrap papar as a base. The paper is from the “Let it Snow” paper pack.
I then made a pocket with the fuse tool for shaking material. The fuse tool is very handy for this. It takes some practice, but the end result is very useful. As shaking material I choose some playful penguins.
I made the pocket behind the patterned paper. I did this with double sided adhesive. Behind this whole I adhered an equally large sheet (15 x 15 cm) piece of Soft Finish Cardstock. Before making this one behind it, I made the penguin in the middle. What a sweetheart she is. She even put on her antlers.
In the front I made the igloo using the Igloo die set # 1569. I first cut the igloo out of white cardstock covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive sheet. After die cutting I peeled off the lined of the tape and covered the exposed adhesive with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. This is one of my favorite product to use on almost any creation. Don’t forget to brush off any extra glitter and to polish the glitter with your index finger. This makes the glitter really shine.
I matted the whole with a basic blue paper and then again with soft finish cardstock. I added a banner right at the top of the card with the sentiment “winter wishes and snowflakes kisses”.
To finish the card I added a bow on the left right from the top to the bottom. I maade the bow with seambinding. I made this color with oxide spray Stormy Sky. When you heat this it wil crumble very nicely.
I hope I was able to inspire you today. See you again soon!
