How To Guide - Step 1

Trim this scenic paper, from the Perfect Day paper pack, to 7 1/2 x 5". Blend Heather randomly through the Snowflake stencil, around the top area of the decorative paper.

Use a palette knife to randomly blend the Nacre Izink Glitter Paint through the same stencil, adding a touch of sparkle to your snowy sky. 

Blast the paste dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Stamp the fence railings and lamp post, in the Smoky Gray Versafine, to the left of your background. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Stamp the couple in the Midnight hybrid ink, to the right of the fence. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Blend the Lost Shadow around the edges of the paper, to draw your eye in to the artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Tear a panel of vellum slightly wider than the paper and deep enough for your sentiment to fit.

Wipe over the vellum with the anti-static bag before stamping the sentiment with the WOW sticky embossing ink. Apply the white embossing powder over the sticky ink, get your heat tool before heat setting the powder, moving the heat tool as soon as the powder starts to turn.

Lay the stamped vellum across the top third of the paper, tuck the edges over the card and secure on the reverse with double-sided adhesive tape.

Adhere your artwork on to black card, trimmed to 7 3/4 x 5 1/4" and then on to your pink card blank.
