How To Guide - Step 1

Tear out this decorative paper, from the Imala Collage paper pad and trim to 8 1/4 x 4 1/4"

How To Guide - Step 2

Using your palette knife and the Izink Dore glitter paint, randomly apply it through the Falling Snow stencil on your decorative paper. 

Set to one side to dry. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Wipe over your vellum panel with the anti-static bag. Ink up the Festive Day house stamp with your WOW embossing ink and stamp on to the vellum. 

Sprinkle a little of the gold WOW powder randomly over your stamped image. Tip any excess powder back in its pot, before covering the complete stamped image with the white WOW powder. 

Get your heat tool nice and hot, before heat setting the powder, ensuring you move your heat tool as soon as the powder starts to turn. This will minimise warping your vellum. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Once the Izink Glitter paint is completely dry, place the stamped vellum on to your background, tuck the edges over the top and bottom and secure on the back, with double sided adhesive tape. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere this on to your pink glitter card, so the top and bottom edges are flush and an equal width of the pink glitter card is visible on both sides. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere on to the front of your pink, top folding card blank. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Place the J O Y dies on to the 4 x 4" white card and run it through your die cutting machine. Keep the remaining white card to one side, as you will use this with your snowflake dies, in a later step. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Apply a little of the Izink Dore Glitter Paint on to your craft mat. Add a little water, then use your paint brush to apply the paint to your die cut letters. I wanted mine to look distressed, so i left white spaces. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Paint a little of the gold glitter paint under your embossed house, to "ground" it.  

How To Guide - Step 10

Once dry, adhere your die cut letters above your embossed house. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Place the snowflake dies from the Christmas Frame Die Collections, on to the white card you set aside earlier. Run them through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere them randomly, on to your card.
