Friends Warm The Heart
Hi all. Last time, when I was creating for May Arts and Tattered Angels week, I just couldn’t stop at one card. I continued playing and make another fun card with more stamping on the ribbon as well.
Here’s a look at another one of my winter card.
- Lawn Fawn Making Frosty Friends set
- Glimmer Mist Caribbean Blue
- Glimmer Glaze Aloha Green
- Glimmer Glaze Waterfall
- Glimmer GlazeWicked
- May Arts Sheer C31
- May Arts Silk SK26 -1 ¼ “
- May Arts Silk SK34 – ¼”
1. Cut a panel slightly smaller than your card base. Color the edges of the panel with glimmer glaze. I brushed it like 3 times, because I want to get a deeper color. Attach to card.
2. Cut another panel that slightly smaller than the first panel. Spray with glimmer mist. And flick some of the glimmer glaze (tip: for easy clean, I do this on top of the sink, so when you flick that tiny brush, whatever don’t land on the panel, can just be washed).
3. Stamp snowflakes and sentiment on the panel.
4. Free hand cut a slope from the sheer ribbon and adhere ribbon to the bottom of the panel.
5. Brushed the skinny ribbon with glimmer glaze, this kind of stiffen the ribbon a bit and also make the ribbon wrinkled a bit. Then stamp snowflakes directly on the ribbon to create pattern on it. Attach to panel then adhere the panel to card.
6. Stamp the snowman and the bird. Fussy cut them. On the snowman, when you cut it, leave some white space as you will color this white space with glimmer glaze (I used Wicked, Aloha Green, and Waterfall). Adhere to card.
7. Ran tape adhesive on a small piece of scrap paper and lay the silk ribbon on top of it. Stamp the hat on the ribbon, fussy cut it. Don’t cut right next to the line. Leave a little space all around. And adhere to panel. Note: when you stamp on silk ribbon, the ink will run a bit as you can see, but since hat supposed to look fuzzy anyway, I think it just add the perfect touch. 🙂
8. Stamp a snowflake, punch it out with circle punch and adhere with pop-dot next to the sentiment.
I hope you like the many way ribbon is used on this card, as a scene builder (the slope), as border, and as stamping material. I would love to hear what you think and really appreciate you stopping by here. Have a wonderful day.
