Today's card features three out of the four new stamp sets revealed this month from Sparkle N Sprinkle: Tree Scene, 3 Wisemen (the Star), and Reindeer (the sentiment).
I started out by heat embossing the Tree Scene in White Detail embossing powder onto my white cardstock and then colored the background with Distress Inks (Faded Jeans, Chipped Sapphire). I cut away the snow banks and adhered a piece of white cardstock covered with 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and Cloud Nine Velvet glitter behind it to create my snow covered hills. After the star was heat embossed, it was covered with Dimensional glue and Sunny Daze glitter was added. The smaller stars in the image were colored with a Copic marker.
I also heat embossed a piece of Embossable Clear Acetate with White Detail embossing powder and fussy cut out the trees and the snow covered banks. Next I stamped my sentiment with Silver Detail embossing powder and then colored it with a blue Copic marker for a silvery-blue effect.
For the snow capped trees, I added Dimensional glue to the snowy areas on the acetate and covered them with Bridal glitter. Once this was dry, I adhered the acetate on top of the card base. This added a bit of shimmer and a little more dimension to the card base. I also die cut the Memory Box die (Frosty Border) from a piece of white cardstock covered with 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and Cloud Nine Velvet glitter. Flat backed pearls were added to the snowflake centers.
