Believe In The Magic Card | Winter Memories


The card I'm sharing today uses the new Winter Memories stamp set. It is a beautiful set of silhouette style images the include horse drawn sleighs and ice skaters enjoying a winter wonderland. To create my card, I started with the background. I first die cut a piece of white cardstock with the postage edge die from the Framework Die Set. I then took the stitched hill die from the Land Borders Die Set and made a mask along the bottom part of the frame and used Therm O Web Purple Tape to mask off the sides for the frame. Using Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch, I inked up the top part of the frame to create the sky.

To give the look of snow I did 2 things. First, I splattered some water onto the inked paper and then dabbed it dry with a paper towel. The second thing I did was to stamp the snowflakes with Versafine Embossing Ink and then heat set them with white embossing powder. I did this second step after I stamped my scene with Ranger Archival Ink in Black (When stamping on top of Distresss Oxide ink, make sure to use a permanent ink such as Ranger Archival Ink or Versafine Pigment Ink. Otherwise, you will cause the Oxide Ink to react with the water in the ink.)
