We’re looking for Christmas cards this week at the Watercooler Wednesday challenge. I decided to make a white on white card (with a touch of silver) for my project, though I slightly regret it because I still haven’t managed to find a good way to photograph white on white cards!
I began by creating my snowflake panel using a random selection of snowflake stamps and the faux turnabout stamping technique I came up with recently. I heat embossed them using Wow Cloud 9 glitter embossing powder. I then used the same embossing powder to create my banner using stamps and dies from Pink and Main‘s Snow Globe set.
I realised that having the banner directly against the snowflake panel was a bit too much, so I cut down a piece of vellum to be just smaller than the snowflake panel and layered that over it to help break it up a bit. I adhered the banner to the vellum then hid more tape behind the banner in order to adhere the vellum into place.
For my card base I decided to add three of the glitter peel offs (leftover from the April Love From Lizi card kit) to the left hand side of my card. I then popped up my focal panel on foam tape, slightly skewed on an angle. Finally I added three silver pearls to finish off the card.
I struggled with this card a bit. I had the plan to do the turnabout stamping because I’d had such fun with that technique when I came up with it, but then I didn’t really have a plan as to how to proceed from there. I ended up having to set the card aside and work on something else for a little while. Of course I did eventually come up with a way to proceed and I’m pretty pleased with the result despite what a fandango it was trying to get it photographed!
