This is one of my favourite cards, and was so simple to make. I used the Winter Wonder Alterations die from Mr Holtz, some alcohol inks, a tiny piece of Ten Seconds Studio metal, and a few snowflake stamps from The Artistic Stamper.
Cut out the die from Glossy card, and alcohol ink in light colours. Add a few splodges of blending solution to lighten the colours.
I stamped the snowflakes on the card with Snow Cap Pigment ink onto the snowman.
I made a sandwich of metal with Humungo Tape and card, and cut another snowman and a snowflake out too. Make sure that you cut the snowman exactly the same way as you cut the first one, otherwise the hat will be the wrong way round! I ran both through the Snow Flurries Texture Fades , and in fact did them upside down so the snowflakes were indented rather than raised. A general tip is that the texture fades will emboss upwards if you run it through the machine with the Sizzix words on the fades upwards. I do have a couple that this doesn't work like this, so I would test them first.
I lightly sanded the metal and cut out the hat to fit, and glued on with Glossy Accents.
Attach to the card with foam pads.
I liked the idea that you could make a Christmas card with pink and purple!
Watch this space for another one tomorrow.. at this rate I will have enough cards to send out to my friends :))
