Hi Crafty friends! It is Natasha here and I am super excited to be back with you today sharing a slimline holiday card! For today's card I am using 2 new stencils from WOW (Snowflake and Snowflake Dance), as well as a new trio of embossing powders (Winter Dreams). I had so much fun creating this slimline card, so let's get started!
I started with a piece of Neenah 80 lb. card stock. I started by placing the Snowflake stencil onto my piece of card stock. I taped the stencil down in a few sections to help keep it in place. I chose 2 colors of ink from the Stamp Market and lightly blended the snowflake onto the card stock. I allowed the ink to dry, then it was time to prepare for embossing! I then repeated the same process using my WOW embossing ink. I directly applied the embossing ink to the snowflake over the colored ink. I use a blending brush to apply the embossing ink through the stencil. I was now ready to emboss, I love this part! I chose a new trio of powders inspired by Martina Manger - Winter Dreams! I love the soft colors in this collection and thought they would be beautiful for these snowflakes! I used a combination of 2 colors on each snowflake!
Once my embossing was complete I wanted to add a bit more shine and sparkle to my card. For the next step I used the new stencil Snowflake Dance. I started by taping this down onto my card panel, then I applied embossing ink directly through the stencil, I then applied the bonding powder from WOW over the embossing ink and heat set this using my WOW heat tool. I then placed the Silver foil directly on top of the bonding powder and gently rubbed the foil with my bone folder. I left the foil for about 30 seconds and then removed the foil. I did have some over foiling, so I removed the extra with my sand eraser. Super easy to do!
Then I added some metallic splatters using watercolors to the card panel to create a little more shine and interest to my card. To complete the card I chose a sentiment from the Peace, Love, and Joy stamp set. I heat embossed these using Metallic Platinum embossing powder. Then I adhered these to my card panel. Next I adhered the card panel to a slimline, pink card panel and adhered this to my card base. I added a few sequins for added shine and interest to my card! I had so much fun creating this sparkly card and adding foil to my card! I loved using the WOW foil, it is super easy to use and the shine is gorgeous!
