I was trying to make a one layer card when this card was born! They card base is Sahara Sand, with Sahara Sand trees from Wonderland stamped across the bottom to create a woodland scene.
They sentiment and snow is taken from Jingle all the way. This month my newsletter projects all feature the Jingle all the Way bundle, subscribe using this link.
But the card looked too sparse, it needed something extra. So I began to rummage in my craft room draw of goodies; this draw contains buttons, ribbons, embellishments, and some other odd bits and bobs. These snowflake wooden elements jumped out at me, but they didn’t look right in their ‘naked’ wooden form. So I coloured them with Whisper White Craft ink.
This was quite a task I have to say, I placed the wooden pieces on the ink pad, and covered them with a larger piece of scrap paper. Pressing the wooden elements into the ink pad to ensure they had a good coating of ink. They problem then was getting them off the pad! Paper piercer to the rescue, and they were laid on the same piece of scrap paper to dry. This ink always take a while to dry but on the wood it took even longer. Without using my heat gun to speed up the process (because it is about to die after a long and painful ill period!) I think it took about 24 hours for these pieces to to dry enough to be stuck onto the card, and even then they were still tacky!
I think it was worth the effort though, because the card is so pretty. I think these snowflakes would also look gorgeous dipped in versamark and heat embossed in white, or silver, or gold…….. *runs back into the craft room to play some more!*
