Non-Traditional Christmas Snowflake Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards | Christmas in July Card 2
Thank you so much for joining me for this Non-Traditional Christmas Snowflake Mixed Media Artist Trading Cards, Let's jump right in.
To start with these ATC's I white heat embossed some snowflakes onto the 5x7 inch piece of watercolour cardstock. I then used four colours of Distress oxide ink in Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar, Old Paper and Brushed Corduroy and smooched them onto a replacement mat, working between the colours and water until I was happy with the results. I dried each layer between adding colours so I would have colours layering on top of one another and not blending.
I die-cut some snowflakes from white glitter cardstock and adhered a snowflake charm on top of the largest snowflake with some matte medium and set them aside to dry. I cut my 5x7 piece of watercolour cardstock down into four 2.5 x 3.5 inch ATC's I trimmed about 1/8th of an inch off the top and bottom so I could add a silver matte under them. The Matte is cut to the standard ATC size so they will still fit in a card pocket. All that's left now is to adhere the snowflakes on top of each ATC and add some white pearls around the snowflakes. I am pretty happy with how these turned out!! I hope you enjoyed stopping by.
