Sparkly Winter Dance Tunnel Card



Winter Dance Tunnel Card Outside

Hello!!! Today's card features Winter Dance from Fairy Knoll.... I love, love, love making winter/Christmas cards. It must be all the fun stuff (glitter, flowersoft, paint, liquid glass, dewdrops) that is used to decorate a winter card.

Making this card was so involved, but it was a wonderful feeling of involvement... you know the feeling you get when you create something that you haven't made before.
And oh the sparkly stuff that I used! That warmed my heart and made me so happy to be playing! :)

Winter Dance Tunnel Card Inside

Here is the inside! Isn't this a fabulous way to showcase a favorite sentiment? You can find the tutorial to make this type of card here at SCS. :) Mine is altered just a bit so I ended up with a 5.5 x 5.5 inch card.

Here are the card details for those of you who are interested.

Card Front: The first thing I did was color my image and add the background snow dots with my copics. The background cardstock was random stamped with a Daisy Bucket snowflake stamp and spritzed with Shimmerz Spritz. Then I added Polar White Flowersoft to the snowman and then the liquid glass and glitter dots. The chipboard snowflakes were painted with a Pearl Ranger Paint Dauber as was the border (outside and inside) of the card. As a finishing touch I added light blue dewdrops and liquid glass and glitter covered Quickcutz diecut swirls.

Inside of Card: The sentiment is from All the Scraps and the snowflakes were from Jolee's (I think). The cardstock was random stamped again and spritzed. The hanging bauble was strung on Karen Foster Paper floss and consists of two (back to back) rhinestone centered beads and three clear/sparkly beads. It is adhered between the two layers with super sticky tape.

Hopefully that answered all of your questions ~ don't hesitate to ask if I didn't cover something! :)

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly: White and Bright ~ Project Tuesday: Tunnel Card ~ Tuesday Throwdown: Monochromatic

Hope you all have a fabulous day! Smiles ~ Brandi
