Happiness Surrounds Episode 2, Just Add INK#432

Episode 2 of using this set simply focuses on the framelits and a Christmas card for a friend who send them home to the UK every year, so Snowflakes are quite appropriate for her. I'm doing "5 Episodes of Happiness" using these sets since I have lots of ideas to share.

Techniques :
  • The background uses Glossy paper and a spritz of alcohol mixed with few drops of Call Me Clover ink and a few drops of Copper Shimmer Paint. The alcohol mix can be swirled all over the paper and gives a gorgeous marbled effect. It needs to be quite dry before you work with it.
  • To create the copper edge on the piece of Clover Cardstock I simply swiped the edge in the versamark pad and dipped it in embossing powder. 
  • cut the snowflakes using the Precision Base Plate with your stamparatus and the big shot die brush is really essential using these intricate dies.
  • There is so much bling that everything else needed to be super simple.
  • I dipped the wooded word into versamark and embossed with white embossing powder and finished it with a simple white twine bow to tie it to the white base card (which has had the subtle embossing folder treatment)
I think this fits nicely with the challenge this week at Just Add Ink. I did like the Call Me Clover crystal button but that wouldn't work so well for postage.

Day 3 using this fabulous set looks at positioning the images.
Pop back tomorrow for more ideas.
