2013-01-08 Snowflake “Z” fold card
I am still working on snow/winter theme cards to mail out to a few friends. I did the same “Z” fold, this time with the theme of snowflakes.
Here I’ve die cut the Sizzix snowflake and sprayed it with a mixture of Silver PearlEx and hair spray.
This angle lets you see some of the dimension of the background. I embossed the background using a snowflake embossing folder by Cuttlebug, then rubbed a silver metallic pigment ink across the raised images. Next I sprayed it down with the mixture of silver PearlEx & hairspray for an all over glimmer. You might be able to see just a bit of it in the photo. The verse (by Whipper Snapper) was purchased from a pool of unmounted rubber for $1 and die cut, shaded and mounted with 3-d mounting tape.
I had extra time yesterday morning and am still looking for Winter themed cards to send out to a few of my friends. I cut, scored, stamped & embossed and took all the pieces to work with me, enough to make 4 cards. I am trying to interest my new co-workers into stamping. I thought if they saw how easy and quick it could be I could convince them to play with me. I put 4 cards together on a 15 minute break as they chatted and enjoyed their break. They commented on the card but still said it was too time consuming. SERIOUSLY? This did NOT impress them. Sheesh. I have no clue what would impress them at this point.
Now I’m off to pop this in the mail! Hopefully the recipient will appreciate it
