Card Tutorial:


-choose your products-I chose Stardream metallic Crystal card stock and Sapphire card stock from CutCardStock.com, I then cut an A2 vertical card base from Basis white coverstock...cut with a tonic paper trimmer and scored at 5.5" with a Martha Stewart score board and a teflon bone folder


-Choose your stamps and dies...mine are all from Jaded Blossom-I cut a 4x5.25" stitched rectangle die from Sapphire card stock and a 3.25x4.5" stitched rectangle die from Crystal card stock


-I then prepped my layer with my EKSuccess powder tool to stamp my snowflakes on my Crystal layer using Distress oxide ink in Faded Jeans...added Simon Says clear embossing powder and then melted that powder with my Marvy Heat tool


-here is the layer stamped and embossed...I didn't realize the pic was blurry...but I included it anyway...you get the just...


-collected all of my products to get my sentiment ready...cut my die shape(using my Vagabond die cutting machine) for the the sentiment with a candy wrap die from Jaded Blossom-used an EKSuccess powder tool on it, then stamped my sentiment using versamark ink...added my Ranger white embossing powder...and melted it with my Marvy Heat tool...I then added my blue layer with an ATG gun, popped up my white layer with 1 layer of foam tape, added my sentiment off to the right with foam tape, I cut off the excess with scissors...I then added my confetti and added Nuvo Glitter drops over the confetti and sprinkled over the card for some glitter
