Max and his Snowman


This is another of Janet Roberts Pink Gem Winter Designs, and Ive stamped it onto white card and again coloured it with my copic pens, then cut it out with my Nestabilitie label die, because the image is to big for the smaller dies, Ive created a mount with some pale blue pearlescent card and with Bev's tutorial, drawn around the large die and cut it out. Then Ive mounted the stamped image onto it with some foam tape.

The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and I layered it up firstly with a piece of light blue pearlescent card, on top of this I have used another of the papers from the Making Cards magazine, this one has a greeting pattern all over it. On top of this I have layered up a piece of darker blue pearlescent paper and used the star border punch along edges again, this was arranged and stuck down the card. The last layer is a darker blue pearlescent card which I have run through my cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing folder, this was stuck to the card with a edge over the last one.

Ive then stuck my stamped mounted image in the centre of the card, and with a piece of the same greeting ribbon that I used yesterday, Ive stuck it around the bottom of the card. To finish of I have punched out three snowflakes and dipped the ends into some glue and Twinklets Diamond Dust, then arranged them across the top of the card with little blue gems stuck in the centre of them. I have also used the Sakura glitter pen on the stamped image again, just to make it glitter a bit.
