Easy Peasy Christmas Cards #40 ~ Noel

This was the last of 3 EPCCs that I whipped up in a day a few weeks back. This card is a little subtle but no less stunning. I’m trying to figure out other wonderful ways to play with Tim Holtz’s frosted film. In the picture the snowflake at the top stands out more. In real life (IRL) they all look the same only the reflection of light caught it in a great way for the picture. I’ve used Kaleidoscope Embossing powder because it was the closest to me but after heating it, it seems to behave the same way as Ranger’s Holographic embossing powder.

Card Face Measures 6 x 6
White measures 5 3/4 x 5 3/4
Patterned Paper Measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
-stamp snowflakes onto patterned paper using embossing ink and heat emboss with translucent glitter
-die cut snowman from frosted film and adhere onto patterned paper
-using a sponge or inking tool add faded jeans and chipped sapphire distress ink all over patterned paper so snowflakes and snowman contrast
-with a moist cloth or baby wipe, remove excess ink from frosted film
-die cut “noel” from patterned paper

I’ve had the itch to get inky with cards lately and have been trying to think of ways to get inky while keeping to my Easy Peasy definition. Don’t be surprised if you see more in future weeks!

OH! You’ll now notice with my posts I’ve got the supplies that I’ve used but in a visual way! I’ve always tagged the supplies and those are always at the bottom of my posts but isn’t very noticeable (this may already be news to you! lol) or visually appealing. Please let me know if it’s more helpful for you! :)
