Lawn Fawn Stamps: Making Frosty Friends & Ornate Ornaments

Instructions:

1. First, I stamped selected images on white cardstock. I wanted to create a winter wonderland type of scene. In addition to the snowman, I used the branches from the Ornate Ornaments set to create small Christmas trees. Then I colored in the images with colored pencils. I used watercolor colored pencils and then applied odorless mineral spirits with a blending tip (both can be found in the art department of a craft store) to blend the color a bit. 



2. Next, I cut out the images with a craft knife / fine tip scissors.

3. I set aside the cut out images and created the base of my card. The background is a 5 x 7 piece of kraft cardstock that’s been stamped with snowflakes from both stamp sets using Versamark Ink. I also stamped a few small snowflakes in red. I trimmed 2 simple strips of pattern paper and layered them along the center of the stamped kraft cardstock. Then I cut a 4” x 4 ½” rectangle from blue pattern paper and matted it onto red cardstock. This will be the background of my winter scene.


4. I used a mix of adhesives: U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam, Mini Adhesive Squares and the Pro+ Perma Tac Adhesive to adhere the cut out stamped images. I gave dimension to the trees, birds, and snowflakes with the U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam.


5. I also added a large piece of U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam to the back of the rectangle and adhered it to the kraft cardstock.

6. Next, I applied a bit of glitter glue to the snowflakes and a few clear gems to the bow and snowflake centers.

7. To finish the card, I stamped the greeting onto snowflake pattern paper and cut it into short strips. I also punched out a heart and small circle from cardstock and pattern paper. I stamped the heart image in the center of the punched heart. I adhered all of these pieces to the right side of the card using the U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam.
