Here’s the card I created for today’s event!!
BRIEF HOW-TO: I trimmed an A2, vertical top-folding card base from white card stock. I die cut an image panel from white card stock using the Postage Stamp Dies. I adhered the white die cut border to the card base with foam tape. I blended some Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks on the inside image panel, and applied some Snowflake Embossing Paste using a snowfall stencil. I stamped the santa image from the Oh What Fun Stamp Set onto some white card stock using New Moon Dye Ink. I colored him with Copic Markers and die cut him out with the coordinating Oh What Fun Dies. I used the Postage Stamp Dies to die cut Santa’s body in half. I adhered him to the ink blended image panel with foam squares. I adhered the ink blended image panel to the card base using two layers of foam squares. I die cut the “HO HO HO” balloon letters from red foil card stock using the Letter Balloons Dies. I tied white crochet cord to the balloons and adhered them to the image panel with more foam tape. I tied a bow at the bottom of the balloon strings and adhered them to Santa’s glove with a rolled glue dot. I applied a light coat of Glossy Accents to Santa’s heard and cuffs and sprinkled some glittery white flocking on top.
