|card #2 of Trifecta Snow Much Fun|
|Trifecta Snow Much Fun|
As I told you in my previous post, I wanted to create a 3-D effect with the stamp set Snow much Fun.
I started with a card base of pacific point blue(my oldest son loves this color!, which is saying a lot because he is a teenager I mostly just get grunts as answers and he usually doesn't like anything unless it has to do with food or sports:-0)
You will need 2 pieces of pacific point blue. The 1st will be 4 1/4"x 11". The 2nd will be 2 1/2"x 6 1/8".
The 1st piece of card stock(the card base) is scores on the 11' side at 5 1/2",7",9",and at 10 1/2".
The smaller piece(the front) is scored on the 6 1/8' side at 4" and 5 1/2".
The layer for the front is a piece of early espresso measuring 2 3/8" and 4 7/8". And a piece of whisper white card stock measuring 2 1/4" x4 3/4". I stamped the snowman image in black staz-on ink and colored in the snowman image with my SU! markers. I then used the epsom salt technique to make a snow image effect over my piece of whisper white.
After drying I attached the layers to the smaller piece of pacific point blue.
On the card base, I crease my folds and create a square at the base, attaching to the card at the 10 1/2 score mark.(make sure your base makes a square so it sits well):seen at the base of this picture.
Then attach the bottom of the smaller piece of pacific point to this square base. I then fold this flat as it would fit in your envelope and put adhesive to the back of the the smallest strip. Open your card base back up and attach in a parallel to your bottom square.(as in above pictures).
Make sure you can fold it flat at this point to fit in your envelope.
The fence post is made using 5 strips of 2 1/2"x 3/8" in crumb cake ,cut at the end with our jewelry tag punch and embossed with our new Woodgrain textured impressions embossing folder, and 2 strips 4 1/4"x1/4" for the back(whatever would you call that??).
The bough is made from old olive card stock cut with our large scallop edgelits framelit. Those cute little bows are made by placing 2 hearts in baja breeze from the owl punch together(and used my baja breeze marker to darken centers)
Attach fence to the front square.
I added some more epsom snow to my card and some small (non Su!- do you believe I had no current snowflake stamp set or accessory with snow flakes??) punched snowflakes to the base.
Hope you enjoy this fellow!!
Until Next Thought,
