Hello everyone! This month's Spellbinder's Clubs is all about Christmas! I love getting a jump start on the busy holiday season. I have a couple of cards featuring Spellbinder's Christmas Wrap Embossing Folder. So beautiful! I have coupled it with the gorgeous snowflake from the Stitching Die of the Month, Stitched Snowflake Cardfront. Have I ever mentioned how much I love sparkle! How about a little dry embossing followed by heat embossing on glitter card stock!
The July "New Subscriber" registration window will be available July 6 - 27th while supplies last.
Glitter card stock panels, one white and the other blue, were cut to 4" by 5 1/4" and embossed with Christmas Wrap Embossing Folder.
The raised area on the glitter panels was tapped lightly with a Versamark ink pad. 'LIGHTLY' is the key word! It doesn't take much pressure to apply the ink! The blue panel was coated with white embossed powder and the white panel with blue. The embossing powder was melted with the heat tool.
The panels were adhered to A2 sized, top folding card bases.
The large snowflake from this month's Stitching Die of the Month was die cut once from white glitter card stock and the other from blue. Sheet foam was also cut twice with this die.
The blue glitter snowflake was stitched in white cotton embroidery thread and the white snowflake was done in blue.
When stacking the stitched elements to foam (or adhering them directly to card stock), I find it best to use Tombow glue. The back is dotted well with the adhesive and left to dry for several minutes until it is in its 'tacky state'. The stitched element will adhere beautifully to any surface and will be repositionable for a time.
The foam backed snowflakes were adhered to the embossing folders. Again, I used the Tombow Glue method mentioned above. This works well when adhering anything to an embossed panel with its uneven surface area.
The snow flakes were embellished with silver crystals.
The sentiments from Outlined Christmas Sentiments have a script component accompanied by a shadow. The scripty words were die cut from matte silver foil card stock and foam. The stacked words were then adhered to vellum shadow die cuts. For tips on stacking fine die cuts on foam, check out the video for the BetterPress Plate of the Month HERE.
