Hello everyone! I’ve got a second card to share with you today. I dug through my Trinity Stamps goodies to find something that hasn’t gotten enough love and came across this S-mitten stamp from last Christmas. It’s adorable and punny too, which I love!
For this card, I got all the products out that I wanted to use and arranged them to see if things would fit how I was thinking. It seemed to work so I started on my background first. I used the A-2 Foundation Rectangle Stencil, next to largest, with a blending buddy brush and some red ink. Then I put the Heartburst Stencil over it using mermaid lagoon in distress oxide for one layer and pink glitz gel for the other layer.
Once that was done, I set it aside to dry while I stamped the image from S-mitten and colored it with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut it out and moved on to my sentiment. For that I stamped and heat embossed the one included in white on black cardstock. I used a banner from the 4-Bar Card Die Set to cut it out. Then I pulled out the Bold Love dies and cut the XOXO from white cardstock 4 times. I colored 2 Xs and 2 Os to match the mittens and glued the layers together. Then I trimmed down a strip of vellum and adhered them to it, including just one white frame layer for each letter.
Moving on to assembly now, I trimmed a white panel down to 4 1/8x 5 3/8 and added foam tape to the back, adhereing it to a white card base. Then I added foam tape to the back of the stenciled panel and wrapped the vellum strip around it. Then I adhered it to the card front as well. I added foam squares to the back of my image and popped it in place and finished things off with a foam strip on the back of the banner sentiment and added it on top of the XOXO.
For finishing touches, I added some unicorn Stickles on the mitten patches and all the little dot detail areas too.
Isn’t this just adorable?!? I seriously, love the colors and texture, and all that dimension! Oh, it’s just fabulous in the light with all that glitter!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
