I was so in love with the recent Glitter snowflake card that I made last week I got this fabulous idea to recreate it in a step card style and give a whole new look and I am so very happy with how it turned out!
I made a Center Step card big enough to handle the create a card die cut panel... it sticks up higher than the card base but that works out fine. The card when folded is pretty large 6" tall X 6 1/2" wide so I definitely need to make my own envelope for it lol.
For the center panel I cut the card front die out of the light purple glitter sticker paper that I had adhered to cardstock first. I then cut a smaller square of dark purple glitter paper using the same process but I just cut it big enough to fit around the large snowflake that I wanted to layer and ran through big shot again. I then took my scissors and cut away everything around that snowflake. Then I attached it in its place on top of the light Purple. I then attached it to light blue designer paper and added the silver foil frame on front. I realized that it needed a solid white cardstock backer behind entire panel so you can't see through the top portion....I then mounted the entire panel centered on the card front. For the sides I cut 2 of the Ornament panels in dark purple glitter, backed them with the same light blue designer paper and then cut them down on the bottoms to fit the card. I cut 2 of the embossed Ornaments from light purple glitter and then I backed with silver foil. oh yeah, I trimmed of the bow tops that cut with the ornament and added a small bow die cut from dark purple glitter paper. I also added a glitter enamel dot (YNS Gumdrops) to the center of each tiny bow that was originally glitter white that I colored with my spectrum noir LV3. I also cut a different smaller snowflake from the light purple glitter cardstock and attached it only in the center of the big dark purple snowflake so it could be more 3-D and added an enamel glitter dot (YNS Gumdrops) that was originally lavender that I colored with my spectrum noir LV3. I cut the Merry Christmas word from Dark purple Glitter paper as well.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my project today because I sure enjoyed making it.
