Today is the start of the new Inky Paws Challenge #60 and it is all about sparkle.
Here is my card as inspiration:
I wanted to make a very dimensional scene, therefore I cut several Scalloped stitched rectangle frames from Pretty Pink Posh. I love to recycle packaging materials, like the backing of the stamp and die sets when building a dimensional frame. Noone will ever see and it is thicker a bit than any of the cardstock I have. The last layer is cut from silver glitter paper.
Before adhering the background scene, I also die cut some Lawn Fawn Birch trees and 2 stitched hillside borders from white cardstock. I also heat embossed in white the snowfall background stamp from MFT on vellum. I cut a blue rectangle as a background and built my layers. My “sandwich” is: blue background, 3 birch trees, 2 frames stacked, vellum, snowbank, birch trees again, frame, snowbank, frame, glitter frame. I get a lot of dimension this way without using foam tape.
The images are from the adorable Santa Paws Newton set, coloured with copics and die cut with the coordinating dies. I also stamped the sentiment from the Snow globe scenes with Versamark and white heat embossed it on a piece of dark red cardstock.
I adhered my shadow box style scene on a piece of metallic dark red cardstock and this went on a white A2 sized card base. A bit of my usual finishing touches I could not leave out: Spectrum Noir shimmer pen on the snowbanks and the Santa costume, some glossy accent on the belt and noses and the pole.
I hope you like my card and got inspired. You have 2 weeks to create a project with some sparkle and link it up on the IPC website. You might be the random winner of the 20USD gift certificate to the NND online store!
See you soon with another cute holiday card.
Have a lovely day,
