For my card this week I have used a paper
pack called Winter Nights from Panda Bear Designs and a fab image called Snow Trio from Stitchy Bear Designs.
I used the icicle paper and the striped one from the set and using just plain card about 160gsm I got a great result from my printer. I made an easel card so I could showcase the icicle in the different directions and I like how they framed the image on the front of the card and lead your eye to the sentiment panel on the bottom. I really like the icicles and can see me using them a lot in my Christmas cards.
The image is coloured with Promarkers with Stickles glitter glue added as an accent to the snow on the ground and parts of the design. I also used small blobs as snowflakes interspersed with punched snowflakes.
On the bottom I used a Fiskars punch go layer the striped paper onto plain white card. The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs. I used a small circle punch to cut the inverse corners and added the small snowflakes in the gap left in the matting layer. The sentiment panel is raised on 3d foam to allow the easel to stay open.
Materials Used in this card are as follows:-
Card Size – 6” square easel card
Paper – Winter Nights 1 by Panda Bear Designs
Image – Snow Trio by Stitchy Bear Designs
Sentiment – Raindrop Echo Designs
Embellishments – Stickles glitter glue
Tools – scissors, 3d foam, Promarkers, Fiskars Treading Water punch, tiny snowflake punch
Techniques – Multifold card, punching
