Let It Snow – Stencil and Die-cuts

Hello! Today I am sharing a CAS winter-themed card created with several Memory Box die-cuts and the Echo Park Snowflakes #1 Stencil,  provided to me by Paper-Garden.ca.

I like the Echo Park stencils because of their 6″ x 6″ size – it’s easy to create either a vertical or horizontal card. This particular stencil features a variety of snowflakes in a random pattern. When designing my card, I carefully considered which snowflakes would be visible in the scene.

I applied Wendy Vecchi embossing paste through the stencil and set it aside to dry for thirty minutes. Once dry, I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over the embossing paste and directly to the cardstock with a sponge applicator. For the most part, the embossing resisted the ink. There was a little bit of ink on the snowflakes, which I simply removed with a wet paper towel.

I die-cut the Memory Box Let It Snow from a red cardstock rectangle, (the die does not cut the outer edges), and placed it over the embossing paste snowflakes background. I added Memory Box Playful Penguins and a snow bank to finish off the scene.

Other ways I considered using this stencil – apply Tumbled Glass Distress Ink or silver metallic ink, heat-emboss embossing paste with a metallic powder, or dry-emboss the cardstock (like an embossing folder) and add ink to the raised snowflakes.
