Today's card was created for the latest Jingle Belles card challenge. To create my card I started by layering some basic black cardstock from Stampin' UP onto my standard white card base. I then layered a piece of red patterned paper from the American Crafts Very Merry 6x6 paper pad on top and added some white dashed lines around the outer edge for some fun contrast. I then die cut the snow globe images from the Papertrey Ink Winter Snow Globe stamp and die collection. I prepped the die cut images with my EK Success powder tool and stamped the base of the snow globe onto the cardstock using Versamark ink and heat set it using Recollections detail embossing powder in silver. I then stamped the snowflakes using more Versamark ink and heat set them twice, once using Ranger's holographic embossing powder for a fun sparkle and again with Recollections detail embossing powder in snow. I love the little extra glimmer and shine stamping it twice gave the images. I then die cut and stamped the Santa, snowman, and tree images onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock and colored them using my alcohol markers. I then stamped the sentiment onto more of the same black cardstock using the Amy R Stamps Big Christmas Wishes stamp set and heat embossed it using more of the Recollections detail embossing powder in snow. I trimmed the sentiment down to create a fishtail banner. I then mounted the snow globes directly to the card base using the sketch as my guide and popped the focal images up off of them using Stampin' UP's foam dimensionals and the fishtail banner using some 3M foam tape. I love how adorably this card turned out. I hope you like it too!
