My card today I created using Nuvo Expanding Mousse, Winter Wonderland Stencil, Susan’s Garden Club Spider Mum and her Holly & Berries. Sentiment is Tonic Studio- Let It Snow.

Step 1 Cut Holly Berry Branch twice from brown cardstock. Adhere together using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. I did a bunch all at once then embossed them with a woodgrain embossing folder. I know it doesn’t really show in picture but it does show in person. Shade with brown ink. Using Nuvo Crystal Drops – Red Berry add berries to branch then set aside to dry. Once dry add berries to back side again set asie to dry.

Step 2 Cut colored cardstock 4-3/4″ X 6-3/4″. My cardstock is a dark blue that has a sheen to it – it was a piece in my scraps. Take Winter Wonderland Stencil place over colored cardstock. Using spatula add Nuvo Expanding Mousse – Worn Linen over stencil. Once scene is covered remove stencil either set aside to dry or heat set.

Step 3 Cut white cardstock 5″ X 7″. Using a rectangle die that fits card front and shows off your scene die cut. Emboss using dotted swiss embossing folder. Adhere over scene using Nuvo Adhesive Tape Runner. Using same tape runner adhere to front of 5″ X 7″ card base.

Step 4 Cut Holly Leaves from green cardstock or white cardstock and color. Shade and shape leaves. Brush with Nuvo Crystal Glaze set aside to dry.

Step 5 Use Susan’s Garden Club Spider Mum Die Set to cut 1 mum from white cardstock or color of your choice. Color and shape.

Step 6 Cut 1 from silver mirror card or other shiny cardstock 1 pc from Tonic Studios Essential Pinecone Season Die Set. Emboss with woodgrain embossing folder.

Step 7 Die cut Tonic Studio’s Let It Snow twice once from the silver mirror card and once from black. Adhere together silver over black offsetting just a tiny bit to give a shadow.

Step 8 Using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive start building on your card starting with silver piece. Add Holly and Berries then build your mum. Add leaves and Ladybug.

Step 9 Add sentiment at bottom of card front.

Snowflakes

snowflakesWelcome my crafty friends!

Today my post is a quick card I created using some of Joset Designs newly released dies Snowflakes, Snowflake Border and Words 5 Winter Wishes.

Here is how the card was created.

Step 1  Form 6″ X 6″ card base.

Step 2  Cut 6″ X 6″ white Soft Finish Cardstock add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to top.  Add Silk Microfine Glitter – Sea Glass to adhesive burnish in with fingers.

Step 3  Die cut bottom edge of card front using Joset Designs newest release Snowflake Border.

Step 4  Using Joset Designs new release Snowflakes die cut 2 from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on front.  Add Silk Microfine Glitter – Cool Diamond to adhesive burnish in with fingers.  Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue on back center of each snowflake.  Add pearls to center of each snowflake.  (I use a bit of Kids Choice Glue to pearls even if they have adhesive on back because of the glitter)

Step 5  Cut black cardstock 2″ X 4″ add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to front cover adhesive with black Silk Microfine Glitter burnish in with fingers.  From Joset Designs new release die set Words 5 Winter Wishes cut Let It Snow.  Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 6  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to bottom 1-1/2″ of inside card.  Add Silk Microfine Glitter – Cool Diamond burnish in with fingers.  This was done so to give the snowflake border glittery effect through the cutouts the picture does not show it but it does look good.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today hope you have a go at it.  For any of the Elizabeth Craft Designs products I used today just click on any picture below it will take you directly to site.

Week 14 Christmas Card Challenge – Snowy Trees

IMG_6213snowytrees1

Hello my crafty friends!

Well this is week 14 of a Christmas Card Challenge I am in with Card Making Tips group on Facebook.  With this post I am caught up with posting my cards so you will only see 1 Christmas card post from me a week for now.  This weeks challenge is Snowy Trees – not decorated.  Elizabeth Craft Designs had the perfect die set for this plus their new Happy Frame which I am loving.

Here is a quick tutorial on how I made this card.

Step 1  Using Becky Seddon’s Reindeer Die Set cut 9 or 10 trees from dark green cardstock and 3 snow mounds from white cardstock.  Using a pallet knife add Snow Accents to snow mounds and trees set aside to dry.   Note: With this snow be careful on snow mounds to keep away from each end and the bottom  edge as the frame will not lay flat against card and adhere.

Step 2    Using ModaScraps Happy Frame Die Set cut 4 pieces to make frame from navy cardstock.  Crease all fold lines using bone folder.  Cut to 6″ cutting on straight end of all 4 pieces and emboss using embossing folder of your choice (dotted swiss used here).   Els has a video showing how to make frame.

Step 3    Form a 6″ square card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 4   Cut medium blue cardstock 5-3/4″ square emboss with embossing folder of choice.  Sand lightly to let white come through to look like falling snow.  Adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 5  Build scene on card front adhering snow mounds using Clear Double Sided Adhesive on lower portions of the snow mounds.  Add trees using Kids Choice Glue on lower portion of trees tucking them between the snow mounds cutting some to make different heights and cutting half off for sides.

Step 6  Add Frame using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 7  Using   A Way With Words – Let It Snow Die Set cut Let It Snow one from black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back and once from White Soft Finish Cardstock.  Adhere black on top of white offsetting just enough to give it a shadow.  Adhere words to lower portion of frame using Kids Choice Glue.

I do hope you have enjoyed this quick tutorial and will create your own version.  If you would like to purchase any of the Elizabeth Craft Designs products I have used just click on picture below it will take you right there.

Thanks for stopping by today and until next time – Happy Crafting!
