Good morning! I was able to jet into my craft room for a few minutes yesterday to make this super shimmery card with the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle.
Our challenge this week at Stamp, Ink, Paper is to use Buttons, Brads, and Sequins. So I actually designed my card around the Tinted Faceted Button in the center of the bottom left snowflake.
I started with a Call Me Clover card base. Then I spread some Shimmery White embossing paste (using a Palette Knife) on a piece of Pool Party cardstock. I ran the Blizzard thinlits die through the Big Shot with Thick Whisper White cardstock (using the Precision Base Plate, I ran it through 4 times, and everything came out easily). After I popped out all the snowflakes, I mixed about 1/4 teaspoon of Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint with a couple of drops of Call Me Clover re-inker. I mixed it up on a little paint tray, then sponged it onto the blizzard cutout using a Sponge Brayer. After the piece dried, I ripped it in half(ish) on a diagonal, then glued it down. I added some of the snowflakes with Dimensionals and Multipurpose Liquid Glue. For the sentiment, I again mixed the Shimmer Paint with the re-inker, then painted it onto the stamp from Beautiful Blizzard with a paintbrush. I stamped it and let it dry. Then I sponged the snowflakes stamp from the same stamp set with Shimmer Paint (no reinker) and stamped snowflakes over the sentiment. You can’t see them in the picture, as they’re subtle, but they’re pretty in person! I finished the card with the Tinted Faceted Button, Whisper White Baker’s Twine, and Iridescent Sequins.
Here’s a picture that shows how shimmery this card is.
