These are the cards we created at this months class!!
I borrowed the set from my friend Karen(hi!)and of course, since it was one of the on-line extravaganza specials, I ordered it :-O
These cards are definitely SNOW MUCH FUN! as the name of the stamp set suggest ;)
I wanted to make these cards all a 3-D style to teach my class a few different folds.
We will go left to right.
I will share my directions in 3 different posts, so you will need to check back this week for the next 2 cards!!
The 1st card is a simple step card.
These are quite the trend and you can find various directions all over the web, but I will tell you mine.I did not take pictures as I went but will try to add them later.
My card base is made of a piece of pool party card stock measuring 5 1/2"x8 1/2".
I score this on the 8 1/2" length at 1",2",3 1/4",4 1/2"and 6 1/2".Then mountain,valley fold.With the one inch fold being the one in the front.
I used 2 strips of approx 2"x5 1/2" pieces of pool party and embossed with the big shot and our Delicate Designs Folders. I used our Large Scallop Edgelits Die to cut these pieces into waves and hills as I like to call them ;) .Then attatched to my card in any manner you like.
I stamped my snowmen and trees on a piece of glossy white card stock. I used a white crayon to make the crayon resist technique for my snowmen and snowball.Then, colored in with various SU! markers. I sponged over my images with baja breeze ink. Then wiped with a tissue to bring out the bright white of my snowmen. I trimmed around my snowmen LOL, I didnt make it super close,but you can if you want. I like to say I am just plain Snooow Lazy :)
I added my snowmen,ball and trees where I thought they would look nicely when you looked at the card from the front for the 3-D image.
I had a little extra white glossy white card stock sponged with the baja so I punched some circles to make a pile of snowballs in front of my tree and added a portion of the saying from the stamp set and trimmed with my paper snips to make a "snow much fun" banner.
Hope you enjoyed!
Until Next Thought,
