Snowflakes-2 waysPosted: January 7, 2011
Snowflakes 2 ways sounds a little like a restaurant dish. I did not set out to make two snowflake cards it just happened. I spent a large chunk of time creating the tiles on the card above. They were hard to photograph but you can see the effect above and in the close up below.
The process in making the tiles was:
- stamp snowflakes in versamark on white card
- emboss snowflakes in clear
- sponge around snowflakes randomly with three blue inks
- punch squares out containing the three snowflakes
- press versamark pad onto punched squares
- emboss with glassy glaze
- repeat 5 & 6 until you are happy with the glassy surface.
Once the tiles were completed I played around with the card base for a while before I was happy. My initial plan was to put them on a plain white card but there was too much white so I tried adding a snowflake and sponging to the card base and then lay the tiles on that but it didn’t look right either. (It became the base for the second card below). When I placed a white panel on a navy card base it looked balanced.
I didn’t want the sponged card base to go to waste so I made three more sponged squares without any glassy embossing and popped them up. My daughter, whose camera I am using, had to help me with her camera’s settings and had the bright idea of taking the side view closeups. I like them better than the front views!
