Wonderland Challenge No. 2

Hello Crafters.

I've just uploaded today's video which I've called JOY Acetate Window. It shows how I made one of last week's Wondrous Wreath challenge cards, with one slight change - see last photograph.

As I wasn't required at work yesterday, I had another delightfully busy day in my studio!

I edited the video I've just uploaded and made the second one that I should have made on Monday!

I made a birthday card for hubby - his birthday is on 5th. November - Guy Fawkes Night! I need to add the finishing touches today.

I also made yesterday's challenge card which was not inspired by Sunday's craft day. I decided I would save them and share them with you next week when I'm in Brussels.

The colour scheme on Sunday was black, white and gold. So I decided this time I'd use silver........partly because I wanted to see what the snowflake looks like heat embossed in silver! Monday's snowflake was embossed twice, the silver one just once - without a doubt, I prefer just one coat!

I made my card base in Whisper White Card Stock, with a layer of Silver Foil and a top layer of the silver snowflake design from the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

I started by attaching the vellum to the Silver Foil by applying lots of tiny dots of Tombow glue behind the silver dots on the vellum.

I then used the Ovals Collection Framelits Die no. 4 to cut the window out. I also cut a Silver Foil frame using dies nos. 4 and 5.

I took a piece of Whisper White Card Stock the was a fraction smaller than the Silver Foil and drew four pencil marks on it through the window so I knew where to stamp my image.  I wiped all over this card stock with my Embossing Buddy.

Using the tree stamp from the Wonderland Stamp Set, I stamped it in Versamark and stamped it in the centre of the four pencil marks. I stamped the stamp with Versamark again and stamped to the left of the image and then repeated this on the right hand side. I covered all images with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set.

I erased my pencil marks and attached the image behind the window and then adhered to the card base, using Tombow both times.

Then, still using Tombow, I adhered the silver frame around the window, then the snowflake and large Iced Rhinestone. I took a thin strip of Whisper White Card Stock and wiped it with my Embossing Buddy. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. I gently curled the strip , bckwards and forwards to make it "wavy" and adhered to the card using Dimensionals. 

As you can see in the last photograph, I did decorate the inside of the window, as I suggested I would when I posted this on my blog last week. The fir branch and cone stamp from the Wonderland Stamp Set suited this card to a T!

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
