Hello friends, Seeka here with a winter-themed card featuring the Snowflake Pattern Cover Plate die. I know it’s only the second day of fall, but I was really excited to get this cover die and couldn’t wait to try it out!
I started by blending Distress Oxide inks onto an A2-sized piece of white cardstock. I blended Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserve inks to create a pretty diagonal gradient. Then I created a splatter effect by sprinkling clean clear water over the panel.
I die cut the panel with the Snowflake Pattern Cover Plate die and then splattered it again, this time with white gouache.
To finish the background, I adhered the die cut over a piece of cardstock that I’d covered with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I applied glue around the frame and then only to the centers of some snowflakes so that they would lift away from the background for a bit of dimension.
For the sentiment, I used a stamp from an older Hero Arts stamp set in my stash called Kelly’s S’no Problem. I used white embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment three times onto cardstock that I’d covered with Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink. Then I trimmed the sentiment strips, backed them with foam tape, and adhered them to the card front.
Finally, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
Thank you for stopping by, and don’t forget to join in this month’s challenge!
