With the weather getting more chilly here in SW Ohio, and the holidays fast approaching, I thought I would create a chilly looking card.
The stamp set I have chosen is Holiday Smooches from Newton's Nook. I decided to create a shaker card for my project.
First I cut two 4 1/2" squares. I die cut the circle out of one of the pieces, then I inked up the piece with some Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean. Then I cut a smaller square with a piece of acetate. I stamped some snowflakes on the acetate with Cotton White Staz-On ink.
I stamped the polar bears, mistletoe and hearts from the stamp set. Colored them using my Zig Clean Real Brush markers. I die cut some snowflakes with the small Snowflake die from Lawn Fawn, filled the shaker area with some seed beads, and a snowflake mixture. Stamped the sentiment with Versa Mark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Last but not least, I created my bow using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker.
This tool makes the perfect bow every time and is so so easy to use. If you have not gotten your bow maker, what's holding you back. You won't regret it, they truly are awesome.
