'/> Stamping With Melva: Christmas Countdown

Christmas Countdown

Today I'm participating in the Christmas Countdown Blog Hop.  We're show casing our projects that we're getting ready for Christmas.  My card feature the Merry Snowflakes Stampset and a technique to add colours to the image using Sponge Daubers.  This was such a fun card to make - I love the surprise of what colour it will be when you stamp it.

Instructions

  1. Cut Balmy Blue card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".  Fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Ink up snowflake stamps using Balmy Blue ink.
  4. Use a sponge dauber to add Night of Navy, Highland Heather and Bermuda Bay to the snowflake before stamping.  Repeat using different sizes of snowflakes until you have the card stock covered.
  5. Cut 7" of Metallic Mesh and wrap around middle.  Adhere to the back.
  6. Cut Balmy Blue cards tock 1" x 4".
  7. Stamp sentiment using Night of Navy
  8. Stamp snowflakes to label
  9. Adhere to card base over mesh using Dimensionals.
  10. Adhere rhinestones.

You can find all of the supplies for this card in my Online Store
