Inky Paws Challenge – Glitter

Hello Everyone,

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!

I will link this up on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Its a stitch up and on the SSS Wednesday Challenge Furry friends, where they are featuring Newton’s Nook Designs this week.


See you soon with another cute holiday card.

Have a lovely day,
