Believe in Magic

by Roni Johnson

A handmade snow centric card featuring many blue and sparkly layers of snowflakes and a snowman made with Radiant Neon Amplify! and the sentiment "Believe in Magic" made by Roni Johnson.

Coming from northern Indiana ideas started swirling around winter and snowflakes since it is getting to be that time of the year. I thought it would be fun to use a variety of techniques to create this layered sparkly snowflake filled card complete with a paper pieced, dimensional fluffy snowman.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 1 hour + dry time

Step 1

Cut a blue cardstock panel 4.75” x 6.75”. Sponge Shimmer White Delicata ink through the snowflake frame stencil along all edges of the panel.

Step 2

Cut a second blue cardstock panel 3 3/8” x 5 3/8”. Rub the VersaMark ink pad over the cutting surface of the snowflake die. Carefully place snowflake dies over the blue cardstock panel. If desired, use a piece of washi tape to hold the die in place.

Step 3

Sandwich the paper between cutting plate and embossing plate and run through the die cut machine. This will emboss the image onto the paper instead of cutting the paper. Carefully remove the die.

Step 4

Sprinkle white embossing powder over the cardstock panel, shake off excess and return it to the jar. Heat the embossing powder to melt.

Cut a 5×7 card base and 3.75” x 5.75” panel from white cardstock. Spray both the card base and panel with Frost Sheer Shimmer Spritz; let dry. Mount the stenciled card panel onto the card base; mount the embossed blue panel onto the white panel; affix this panel to the card base.
