Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you today! We are adding snow with Embossing Paste to create a fabulous winter scene!
I’m not a fan of winter….like at all but this card sure looks amazing. I would be just fine stamping winter and not actually having it happen! Do you like Winter? Let me know in the comments below!!!
I started with a Pool Party card base. Next I took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and stamped snowflakes all over in Night of Navy Ink. I used the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set. Now for that amazing snow on the bottom! I simply took a scrap piece of white and tore along the top for texture. Next, I smeared a thin layer of Embossing Paste over the top. Then sprinkle some Dazzling Diamonds glitter all over the top. Right after that, I added Snail adhesive along the bottom of the snowflake stamped white piece and pressed the glitter strip onto it.
I did this while it was still wet for a few reasons. 1. I found that adding it to the base first would allow for glitter to stick and hold around the cardstock and under it. 2. If I let the Embossing Paste dry with the glitter first, sometimes it curls and when I would press it flat, it cracks. Pressing it on while still wet gets a perfect look with minimal glitter and isn’t really not that messy. Simply wash your hands to get any excess glitter off after pressing it on!
Next, I die cut some snowflakes with the coordinating Seasonal Layers Framelits (Bundle & Save 10%). I loved this bundle because there are 3 snowflakes in the set so I only had to crank through the Big Shot once for every card! I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen for adhering the snowflakes to the card. For the greeting, I stamped it with the Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set and punched it out with the Everyday Label Punch. I punched a second one in Night of Navy and placed that one up and down and the greeting over the top side to side. I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! Just stunning!
