I was delighted to be asked to be a Guest Designer at CRAFT-alnica, Slovenian challenge blog, for month of August. I'll share my challenge projects twice this month as GDT at CRAFT-alnica.
First challenge I'm guesting this month is a challenge #192 - Bleščeč Božič v avgustu / Glittery Christmas in August. The theme is picked by DT Lili. Use glitter, glittery material or glittery embossing powder on your Christmas cards.
It was quite a challenge for me to create a card for this challenge, as glitter and glittery stuff are not something I like. After long time thinking and combining this and that, I decided to go with B&W color combo and super simple design. Here is my take on the challenge: Black & White Glittery Snowflakes Card Card.
To make this card, I used GORGEOUS Create a Smile snowflake stencil from 'Frosty Fun' kit.
I mixed a structure paste with white glitter on an acrylic block. I spread the paste through the stencil on a black cardstock paper panel, removed the stencil and left the panel dry for half an hour. Then I sprinkled whole surface with white glitter, so the surface of snowflakes would be even more glittery. I left the panel dry over the night. :o)
Next day I glued the panel on a foam sheet square, 3 mm thick, and glued the panel on a black cardstock base. To make my card sturdier and stable while standing, I glued another black cardstock paper panel inside the card and my card was finished.
Card dimensions: 153 mm x 101 mm (6" x 4")
List of supplies:
- black cardstock paper
- Snowflakes stencil from Create a Smile 'Frosty Fun' kit
- Marabu Light Structure Paste (805)
