Cut a 6”x6” piece of white cardstock. Tape stencil to cardstock with removable Pixie Tape. Dry emboss cable knit pattern onto cardstock by running it through a die-cutting machine.
Leaving tape in place, partially ink blend a rainbow of Electro-Pop Neon Inks across stencil openings. Let dry, leaving tape in place.
Using the Stencil Pal, spread a layer of Gina K. Designs White Glitz Glitter Gel evenly across stencil openings. Return excess to jar; wipe rim and close tightly. Remove tape and carefully remove stencil; let dry completely. Wash tools immediately in warm, soapy water.
Use matching inks to stamp a variety of Baby It’s Cold Outside snowflakes. Tip: For reverse snowflakes, ink blend cardstock scraps and then stamp snowflakes with clear embossing ink; heat emboss with white embossing powder. Die cut snowflakes or fussy cut, as desired; set aside.
For foiled snowflakes, die cut Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflake shapes from Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheets. Peel top liner from shape and place, sticky side down, onto dull back side of foil sheets. Turn over and burnish well with fingertips; do not use fingernails or any type of tool. Gently peel foam snowflakes from foil sheet and set aside; do not remove back liner yet.
Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock with clear embossing ink; heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Fussy cut sentiment strips.
Trim stenciled panel to 4”x5.25” and adhere to card front. Using photo as guide, adhere stamped snowflakes and sentiment to card with liquid glue or tape runner. Use 3D Foam Tape to add dimension behind some snowflakes.
Peel back liner from mini snowflakes and stick directly to card front or centers of larger stamped snowflakes.
Add tiny gems or sequins here and there using UltraBond Liquid Glue.
