Let it Snow Card Featuring A Jillian Vance Design Stamps

Today I would like to share with you a card I created with the fabulous A Jillian Vance Design Stamps..  I just adore them all...  We still don't have any snow and I wish we did... So with that here is my "Let it Snow" card... 

Products used:
A Jillian Vance Design Just Snowflakes Stamp Set
A Jillian Vance Design Snowflake Sentiments Stamp Set
Core'dinations Cardstock
Kraft Cardstock
File Folder
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Brilliance Moonlight White Ink
Versa Magic Night Sky Ink
ColorBox Creamy Brown Ink
Vintage Ribbon
EK Punch

Here is a close up photo...

Card Instructions:
  • Trim Kraft Cardstock to 8.5"x5.5" and fold in half to create card base. 
  • Trim Core'dinations Cardstock to 5.25"x4" set aside
  • Trim File Folder to 4"x4" and create your own pattern paper.
To get the snowflake Pattern Paper. Use the 4x4 piece you cut out from a file folder.  Stamp 2-3 of the snowflakes with Brilliance Moonlight White and then dump UTEE on them and heated it up.  I stamped a few more snowflakes and did the same process.  Then I took out my Distress inks and Inking tool and inked the file folder from "Tumbled Glass" on top, "Broken China" in the Middle and "Faded Jeans" on the bottom.  You always want to go from light to dark when working with inks, paints etc.  I then spritzed it with water to let it run a bit and heated it up.  Be careful to not rub the UTEE when it's hot as it may smear. I then flicked a few water droplets onto my pattern paper and heated it again for the droplets to dry. 
  • Using EK border punch.  Punch top and bottom.  Adhere to Core'dinations 5.25"x4" piece of cardstock. 
  • Wrap Vintage ribbon around and tie off into a bow. Adhere to card base. 
  • Stamp Sentiment on scrap piece of file folder.  Adhere to card
