Silver Foil Snowflake Card

Hello, Crafters.

This week I've spent a lot of time workng with our Foil Snowflakes, not least because that's what we'll be working with during this weekend's classes.

Today's card is quite simple but I picked out a stamp from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and a die from the co-ordinating Rose Garden Thinlits. 

Unfortunately, my photographic skills don't do my card the justice it deserves, but I think you can see enough to appeciate the beauty of the finished card.
 
I started with a Whisper White Cardstock (CS) card base, a layer of Silver Foil and a top layer of Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper. 

I adhered the three pieces together using Tombow.

Then I took a piece of Whisper White CS, and wiped over it with my Embossing Buddy. 

I stamped the snowflake image from the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set using Versamark Ink. 

I sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over the image, removed the excess powder and heat set the remainder.

Using the Stitched Shape Framelits, I die cut the image. 

I put SNAIL on the back of the image, and then positioned it in the centre of the Silver Foil Snowflake. 

I added some Glue Dots on the back of the Snowflake, but I made sure they were adhered underneath the image circle. 

I adhered this on the top half of the card front.

I chose the sentiment from the Hang Your Stocking Stamp Set, but I wanted it to be framed by something! 

I went through all my current stamp sets and found an unusual shape in the Rose Wonder Stamp Set that was suitable because it was the right size and had a co-ordinating die.

I took another piece of Whisper White CS, and wiped over it with my Embossing Buddy. 

I stamped the sentiment using Versamark Ink, and sprinkled Silver Embossing Powder over the it. 

After I'd removed the excess powder, I heat set the remainder. 

Then I repeated the process with the outline stamp from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set, and stamped it centrally over the sentiment. 

Then I heat embossed it using Silver Embossing Powder. 
 
After I die cut the sentiment, I adhered it to the bottom half of the card front using Glue Dots. 

I added three round Metallic Enamel Shapes in silver.

For the inside of the card, I heat embossed another snowflake using Silver Embossing Powder in the bottom right hand corner of the top Whisper White layer.

I adhered this onto a layer of Silver Foil and adhered the two pieces inside the card.

Now I have to get everything prepared for this afternnoon's class. 

I think I have more or less everything ready, apart from putting the packets for the 3D project together, and setting the room up!

Time to get busy, methinks!

I hope you have a great weekend. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
