“Christmas or Winter Card” - It’s only 1 month until Christmas, so make a Christmas or Winter themed card today to get a jump on your stash. (If you don't celebrate the major winter holidays, remember you can make a project with a winter theme too.)
I recently received these scenic winter border dies, free in the Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine - issue 168.
I created the background sky with distress inks, tumbled glass, salty ocean and chipped sapphire.
I then die cut the borders in white, highlighting the edges with copic pens and glitter glue. Once it dried I positioned the layers where I wanted them and die cut with the rectangle die. Because it was four layers the die cut the top 2 and just scored the other 2, so I just separated the layers and die cut the scored ones. I then glued them back together, placing foam tape behind the top of each layer for dimension. Once I completed the whole card I thought the card just needed a bit more.
I had seen a few tutorials creating snow scenes with a white gel pen. Well every time I buy a gel pen it is always dry after a few uses, I vowed never to buy another. What I did have was a glaze pen in white, so I had a go with it, the only problem was I could see the spots until the ink was dry so I think my scene looks a little like a blizzard scene.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
