So, let’s get started! To create this card, I started by mixing a few liquid watercolors. The colors that, I used were; Bubble Gum Liquid Watercolor, Lavender Liquid Watercolor, Sapphire Liquid Watercolor, and Licorice Liquid Watercolor. Once, the colors were mix together the way that I wanted, I added a bit of water to the card panel that, I cut out of a Canson Watercolor Paper sheet. Next, I added the color mixing here in there repeating a few layers until the card panel was completely cover. Right afterwards, I set the card panel aside to dry.
In the meantime, while the card panel was drying, I ran through the die-cutting machine the top layer of the Snowflake Tag Wafer Die 2X to die-cut the Snowflake out of heavy weight white card stock. Once, the die-cuttings were done I adhered them on top of the other with liquid glue because, I wanted the snowflake to be sturdy as, I was going to heat emboss it with Pink Sherbert Embossing Glitter. Right after the heat embossing, I came back to the card panel so, I mixed a bit of Liquitex Heavy Body Acrylic White Paint and some drops of water then, after that, I added a few white splatter here and there from the mixing to the card panel as you can see in the picture above.
Lastly, I waited a few minutes for the splatters to dry… and right when the card panel was completely dry, I trimmed the edges a bit smaller than a standard A2 size card, and I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 top folding white card base with foam mounting tape. As, for the Snowflake, I adhered the backking on one side of the card… and, for the sentiment, I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Holiday Wreath Builder Clear Stamp with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder on the opposite lower side of the card. Finally, as a finishing touch, I heat embossed some tiny snowflakes here and there with the same embossing glitter that, I used for the big snowflake and I adhered some Jewels Mix here and there for a sparkly look. Well, that’s all for today blog post, I hope that these glittery Holiday/Winter ornaments inspire you to give them, and the “Christmas” challenge a try! As always, I appreciate the time you take to read my blog posts. Below; you’ll find the supply list for the products used in this blog post.
