This week at the Watercooler I’m hosting the challenge! It’s my first time hosting, which is very exciting for me. We’re all about Christmas this week, and I decided to make something with plenty of sparkle! (This is my second post of the day! Click here to see my debut DT post for The Male Room.)
I started by treating my white card base with my anti static powder tool. I then took a large snowflake stamp from Knorr Prandell and stamped it several times across my card base with embossing ink. I coated them with Wow Cloud 9 embossing powder which is beautifully glittery.
I had originally stamped my sentiment directly onto the card base and masked it off whilst stamping the snowflakes. My mask very slightly tore the paper over the sentiment, but I figured I could fix it by restamping the sentiment (from Lawn Fawn’s Merry Messages) as I hadn’t removed the stamp from my MISTI at that point. Unfortunately it didn’t go to plan.
Instead I stamped the sentiment onto a snippet of white paper using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I then created a mat with red mirror card to add a little pop of colour to my card. I used some double sided tape to adhere the sentiment to the card.
I’m actually glad in a way that I had the problem with the sentiment stamping, because I love how it looks with the pop of red from the mirror card. I’m really pleased with how this card came together, and I do love the sparkle! It’s just perfect for Christmas.
I hope you found this card inspiring, and I look forward to seeing your Christmas cards for the challenge!
