I am part of the extended Pootles team of Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrators and under normal circumstances we love to get together as a great big team and we make cards and gifts to swap with each other. Clearly that’s not possible in these pandemic times so we’ve done a postal swap for the August to December 2020 mini catalogue instead.
The way it worked was we each made 6 identical projects and send them to Sam Hammond-Donald who kindly sorted them all out into packs of 6 different projects to send back out to everyone taking part.
Today, I’d like to show you the card that I made as my swap…
I made my card base with Whisper White thick card and added a layer of Misty Moonlight card on top.
I cut a piece of Whisper White card and embossed it with the Winter Snow embossing folder and actually added this to my card base with the de-bossed side showing.
I stamped the large snowflake from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set by inking it with Versamark ink before I added the Misty Moonlight ink, added clear Stampin’ Emboss powder, heat set it and when it had cooled I die cut it. The So Many Snowflakes dies coordinate with the Snowflake Wishes stamp set and if you buy them together as a bundle you’ll save 10%.
Before adding the snowflake with Stampin’ Dimensionals I added half of one of the Square Vellum doilies, cut on the diagonal.
I the added a strip of the Snowflake Splendour designer series paper and a strip of Misty Moonlight card that I’d cut one end with the Banners Pick A Punch. I also added some of the iridescent Snowflake Splendour ribbon and eventually the die cut snowflake with a Blue Adhesive-Backed Gem in the centre…
The sentiment is from Snowflake Wishes and is stamped with Misty Moonlight ink onto Whisper White card, trimmed to fit and added to the bottom of the card. I used the same ink to add some little snowflakes to the inside of the card…
And just for a little extra touch I de-bossed the envelope flap to coordinate with the card…
Although the overall look is quite clean and simple there are just enough layers and textures to make it look a little more special. I hope all those that received this card like it.
I certainly love the cards I received and I’ll share them all with you tomorrow.
Until then, I’ve listed the products I used for my card below and you can click on any of the links to start your Stampin’ Up! shopping with me.
