Hi Crafters and Friends. I am here with you today with a taste of the brand new Collection from Sara Davies. Winter Wonderland is a most beautiful collection, full of coordinating goodies, from Specialty Cardstock, Stunning Dies, Embossing Folders and all the extras too. It also contains the expected 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 paper pads, jam packed with amazing designs. With this collection, you will definitely have everything you need to create your own special Christmas Cards.
For the card I have made for you today, I have also used the intricate foil transfers with the coordinating foil. It’s the first time I have used these, I have to say I was over the moon with the results and professional finish. I would highly recommend them and the process is so easy.
You will need:
From the Winter Wonderland Collection:
Luxury Glitter Card (Winter Blue)
Fluttering Snowflakes 5 x 7 Embossing Folder
Dendritic Crystals Metal Die
Seasonal Sprigs Die Collection
6 x 6 Foil Transfers
Winter Wonderland Foil Rolls
Centura Pearl White Hint of Silver
Sheena Stamping Card
Foam Tape or Pads
Collall 3D Glue Gel
Collall Tacky Glue
Sue Wilson Stitched Octagon Die Collection
Sue Wilson Lavish Accented Octagon Die Collection
Top Tip: Gut all of your card, where possible, especially the specialty card from the collection, it’s precious.
Step 1: Start by cutting your Card Base Elements. Here I have used the Second and Fourth Detail Octagons from Sheena Stamping Card, the corresponding corresponding layers and frames were then cut using the Winter Blue Glitter Card.
Step 2: Cut a 7 1/2” Square of Glitter card, use the centre of this for one of your octagons. Cut a 7 1/4” square in white, you can use the centre of this to cut your Dendritic Crystal die. Then emboss with the folder.
Step 3: Secure these together and layer onto card base measuring 8 x 8, created with Centura Pearl.
Step 4: Next, add your foil transfer to your smaller centre section, here I have used the wreath design with a separate sentiment.
Step 5: Using Tacky glue secure your snowflake design behind your frame (See Photo).
Step 6: Layer your Largest Octagon onto the Winter Blue glitter card, to highlight the design.
Step 7: Secure to your snowflake frame, using 2 mm foam tape or pads for depth, layer this onto your glitter card with a little additional 3D Glue gel.
Step 8: Layer your second (smaller) Octagon onto glitter card. Secure this section to your card.
Step 9: Secure this section to your base card, again use foam tape for additional depth.
Step 10: Add sprigs and berries from the collection, cut from a mix of White and Blue. Add your sentiment panel, then finish with a matching bow.
