Mixing Hot Foil Plates and Dies to Create a Winter Scene
Scrappy Tails just released there Holiday collection over the weekend and it's an amazing one! It's called Candlelight Christmas and has an Old English Christmas theme with a fun pop up lantern die set!
I love all the new products and had a hard time choosing which one to use first. I decided to go with this adorable reindeer from the new Layering Reindeer Pair die set, and I combined it with a few hot foil plates from last year's Christmas collection. I used the A2 Hot Foil Snow background plate and the Bold Christmas Sentiments!
To make this card, I started by ink blending my background with teal colored inks. Once I was satisfied with the look, I hot foiled the A2 snow background using white matte foil. Then, I splashed it with some water to create the look of faded snow in the background.
Next, I die cut and assembled one of the reindeer from the Layering Reindeer Pair die set. This deer is super easy to paper piece, I die cut the base from dark brown card stock and the layering pieces from a medium and light shade of brown. I die cut the scarf from pink, and added white gel pen accents to finish her off.
Finally, I foiled the sentiment "Let it Snow"with teal foil on white card stock. I trimmed the sentiment to a wide strip to create the bottom 'snow' for my card. I trimmed the ink blended panel to 4"x5 1/4" and glued all the elements onto it. To separate the snow from the sky, I added a skinny strip of white glitter card stock, and that finishes off my card!
Thank you so much for stopping by- I'll see you next time!
