I started with die cutting a scalloped stitched rectangle from dark blue cardstock using the Frames and flags die set. I layered the Petite Snow stencil over it and added a thin layer of Deco Foil Transfer gel with a spatula. I removed the stencil, washed it right away and set the panel aside to dry completely.
Meanwhile I stamped the dancing couple from the Winter memories stamp set with Versafine Onyx black ink on white cardstock and clear heat embossed it. I also stamped a couple of pine trees using 2 shades of green ink and the rocking technique. I die cut them with their coordinating dies.
I also wanted to make the ice look really icy, so I applied a thin layer of the Deco Foil Transfer gel on the stamp using a simple make up sponge. Then I stamped it like I would with normal ink. I set it aside to dry too.
I needed a stitched hillside for my scene, which I cut from plain white cardstock and staped the Merry sentiment from the Sentiments of the season stamp set with black ink. I die cut the Christmas using the Holiday Greetings die set and Therm O Web’s Peel’n’stick Toner sheets.
I foiled the background and the ice piece using my laminator and Therm O Web Deco Foil Opal Transfer sheets. It looks gorgeous in real life. For the Christmas sentiment I used Glittering Green Transfer Foil. I assembled the card using 3D foam squares and added a little green gemstone as the dot of the “i”.
I started again with the background: I sponged some distress inks on Bristol smooth cardstock and layered the Snowfall stencil over it. I added Deco Foil Transfer gel and let it dry before I foiled it with Therm O Web Iridescent Transfer Foil.
I stamped and coloured some of the images form the Nutcracker’s Squeak set and cut them out with their coordinating dies. I die cut a stitched scalloped circle frame from Violet cardstock and an inner circle from Mint cardstock. I stamped the sentiment on this using purple ink.
When assembling the scene, I added more dimension using 3D foam squares here and there and finished off the images with a black glaze pen and glossy accents.
I was so enthusiastic to try the Therm O Web Clear Toner sheets, I chose the O Christmas Tree one for my clean and simple card.
I used the Sunset Deco Foil to add an ombre colour to the trees and sandwiched the foiled clear sheet in between white stitched hillsides (Land borders die set).
I also used the Peel ‘n’ stick toner sheets to die cut the sentiment (Holiday Greetings die set) and foiled them with Gold Deco Foil. It was so easy to adhere them to the card thanks to the adhesive backing!
