Distress Oxide Ink Blended Snowflake Slimline Card
Updated: Sep 14, 2020
Hello Everyone, Thank you so much for joining me for my last Christmas in July card!! Yes, I did make another snowflake card... I honestly just cannot resist I love them so much !! At least every one of my snowflake cards are different from each other so I hope you are still excited to hear about this card! Let's jump in.
To start as always I cut down my cardstock, for Slimline cards I have been loving the 7 inches by 8.5 inches and scored at 3.5 inches size. I also cut down a black matte (you know I love them !!) to be 1/8th of an inch smaller than my base and my panel is 1/8th of an inch smaller than my black matte. Using Pumice Stone, Speckled Egg, and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink and my Domed Foam blending tools, I blended on my background trying to make a feel of movement across the card panel.
I then stamped down my sentiment from Simon Says stamp's Christmas Cheer stamp set and made it a mask to make the sentiment feel more like apart of the card rather than having it stand out on its own.
I then splattered on some Perfect Pearls in the colour Perfect Pearls to add some shimmer to the background and once that was dry I took the Snowflake stencil from Scrapbook and used some Pixie Spray to keep my stencil from moving. Using my Nuvo spatula and some Gina K Glitz Glitter Gel in the colour Iridescent I covered my background until it seemed even then lifted off my stencil and washed it in warm soapy water.
Once the Glitz Glitter Gel was dry I added some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals and adhered my panel and matte to the card base with some Nuvo Deluxe Glue. I hope you enjoyed this card and if you would like to check out the full tutorial please watch the video below.
