I thought you might like to see a Christmas card idea I took to Orlando to swap with other Stampin' UP! demonstrators at our 2018 OnStage event!!
I used the Stampin' Up! Detailed Deer framelit with Copper Foil paper, the Woodland Embossing folder in the background, Glimmer Paper, shimmer paint, and more!
I love the deer die cut from the copper foil paper... it's really the focal point of the card!
You can make these cards!! All supplies are available in my online store, just click ANY product photo at the bottom of my blog post! Thank you!
The Woodland Embossing folder from Stampin' UP! creates the perfect background for this card!! The subtle tree trunks in the background were embossed with my Big Shot then I spritzed them with Frost White Shimmer Paint... scroll down a little to see more about that!
The greeting is stamped with Merry Merlot ink from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set on a Stitched Label framelit die cut and decorated with the Frosted & Clear epoxy droplets.
When I make multiple cards, I always cut, embossed, die cut, score and stamp all the layers first, gather all my supplies, then make all the cards.. here are my swap card supplies:
TIP! Be sure to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue when adhering your embossed images to your handmade cards.. it holds the layers together much better than dry adhesives. I used it also when adhering the glimmer paper "snow" to the embossed image.
To create the Glimmer paper snow, I cut a 3" x 4" pieces of glimmer paper then used my paper snips to cut a wavy line down the middle, and that produced TWO pieces of snowy hills. :)
The neighborhood squirrel was watching me from the top of the fence.. I'm sure he thought I'd lost my marbles! :)
If you haven't mixed up some Shimmer Paint with rubbing alcohol in a Stampin' Spritzer yet, you are in for a treat!! You can see more info and watch the video HERE!
I also took a bunch of the cute coffee cup cards to Orlando for swapping.. I'll be blogging those soon!
