Stampendous and Dreamweaver Stencils, so feel free to refresh yourself on those by clicking on the "older posts" button at the bottom of the page. Meanwhile, I plan to start posting at least one holiday card sample per week for the next month before ramping it up. This card was created using one of Dreamweaver Stencil's great snowflake designs. Extremely simple card to reproduce over and over. Just run the panel of Coredinations cardstock through your die cutting/embossing machine (I use a Big Shot) with the stencil, and run a sanding block over the surface to really highlight the detail. Sand a little over the card created from the same cardstock. Kind of leaves a distressed and frosty look. The white panel down the middle was run through the machine with the flakes background stencil (hard to tell in the photo). I recommend spritzing the cardstock with rubbing alcohol before running it through with the stencil to get a deeper embossed image. Adhere the panels to the front of the card. Wrap and tie a ribbon around it. Embellish with a rhinestone and dimensional sentiment and you're done! Has a great wow factor, yet simple to duplicate...or triplicate, etc. Happy holiday stamping!
