Distress Oxide Spray Snowflake Card Part Two
Updated: Sep 14
Hello everyone!! and welcome back, If you stopped by last week then you know that this is a bit of a similar card... in that, I used Distress Oxide Spray and snowflakes, but I hope you still want to hear about this second card in my Christmas in July series!! Let's jump in.
Using my splat box and a cut-down piece of Distress card stock, I sprayed on Distress Oxide spray in Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac onto my panel to create my background while also layering a little water to get the colours to blend together. I set the panel aside to dry to almost fully dry, while it was still a little damp I put it into the Sizzix 3D Winter Snowflakes embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot, I wanted the panel to be a little damp because then the embossing folder is less likely to crack the cardstock as it embosses.
I set the panel aside to fully dry and started working on my silver snowflakes and sentiment. For the snowflakes, I used a snowflake die from Simon says stamp called Grace and some silver glitter paper from Concord & 9th I ran them through my Gemini Go and popped them out with my pokey tool. I also used my Mini Misti and stamped out a sentiment from Altenew Festive Poinsettia on Vellum with Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment ink and trimmed it down with my Tim Holtz Trimmer.
I also trimmed a piece of the same silver glitter paper to matte my panel with making it 1/8th of an inch smaller than my A2 sized card base, my coloured panel is also 1/8th of an inch smaller than the silver matte. I used my favourite liquid glue to adhere all my bits and pieces down to the A2 sized card base. Now using liquid glue is not the best thing to use to adhere down Vellum... My sentiment ended up lifting off and ripping my background, however, I used my Xyron Sticker maker and stuck my sentiment back where it was and it's pretty hard to tell that it even ripped off.
To finish off my card I added some Studio Katia Sparkling Crystals, as you can see from the picture I did put some around the sentiment to cover up where the paper ripped up when the Vellum came off but I don't think you can even tell it ripped my background.
