The November Hedgehog Hollow kit is packed full of winter goodness! I was so excited to get this box in the mail early this morning! I decided to make a quick video to share a quick winter card and 3 easy ways to add snowfall effects on your cards!
To start, I pulled out a piece of Maker Forte Windsor Blue and Rebellion Red card stock. I cut front card panels at 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″. My card bases are cut at 7 x 8-1/2″.
I added some distress oxide inks to the outside edges of the colored card panels. To the blue, I added Prize Ribbon and Chipped Sapphire. The red got Candied Apple and Aged Mahogany. I was trying to really darken the outside edges for a moodier look.
Once I allowed the ink to dry, I heat embossed a vertical sentiment down the center of each panel using white embossing powder. I added the fabulous snowflake details with the small stamps in the kit randomly around the outside of each card. These were also heat embossed in white.
Next I spritzed the inked areas of the card with water using my Mister Perfect mister bottle and blotted the water up with a paper towel. This removes some of the water based dye ink giving an added snowfall look!
Finally, I added some white gel pen dots to each card. This gives a sparkly snowfall effect to your card. You can also add silver or white sequins as well.
There are so many ways to add snowfall effects to your cards. The 4 easiest ways to add snowfall include:
- Use small snowflake stamps and heat emboss them in white.
- Spritz water on to an ink blended background to lift the dye based ink from the card where the water lands.
- Add white gel pen dots or + details for a sparkle effect.
- Use white or silver sequins.
