Oxide Blended Snowflake Slimline Card | 12 Weeks of Christmas Week 11
Hello everyone and thank you for joining me for week 11 in my 12 weeks of Christmas series, hard to believe we are already at week 11 hey?? I LOVE how this slimline card turned out and I cannot wait to share it with you, so let's jump right in.
To start I created my slimline base, a piece of cardstock cut to 7 x 8.5 inches and scored at 3.5 and a panel that's 3.5 by 8.5 inches that I will later cut 1/8th of an inch off to allow a small white border to show around the coloured panel. Using three Distress Oxide inks in the colours Abandoned Coral, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves, I created my background by blending between the colours until I had a smooth blend. I then used Snowflake stamps out of my stash to add texture in the background, I added the stamps to some acrylic blocks, spritzed them with water and stamped them onto my blended panel. I also added splashes of clean clear water, perfect pearls and white gouache to add even more texture to the background.
While my panel was drying I cut out 9 snowflakes using the Simon Says stamp Lea, Grace and Mandala Dies from some Pearl glitter cardstock and stamped out my Happy Holidays sentiment on a scrap piece of cardstock that I trimmed down. Once I had a layout that I liked I added small dabs of Nuvo Deluxe Glue on the snowflakes and adhered them to the coloured panel. Then cut off any pieces that were hanging off the card panel and adhered my coloured panel to the slimline base. I added a couple of gems to the center of each snowflake for a little more shine and called this card done.
I think it turned out stunning!! I hope you like it as well, if you would like to see a step by step tutorial of how I made this card please check out the video below.
