Hey everybody! I hope your new year has started off on a happy note! Do you make new year’s resolutions? For the past few years, mine has been to use more stamps and dies in my stash that have either never been used or used maybe once. Leslie here, sharing a thank you card featuring our Pop Tone Tangy Orange and Pop Tone Hot Fudge cardstock. I paired the Pop Tone with Neenah Classic Crest Solar White which is a staple in my studio. The Pop Tone line is one of my favorites because there are so many pretty colors. Plus I used a multi-step stamp set that I’ve had for years and had never inked up! Win-Win for me!
Cut Card Base and Layers
I cut a standard A2 landscape top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White along with front and inside layering panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White. An additional set of front and inside layering panels were cut from Pop Tone Tangy Orange. I used a corner punch in my stash to clip off the corners of both white layering panels.
Stamp Snowman Elements
Using multi-step stamps, a variety of inks, and acrylic stamp blocks, I stamped the snowman elements on Solar White cardstock. I then fussy cut all the elements, and yes, I’m famous for dropping tiny pieces. When I picked them up, I stuck them to a piece of washi tape.
Arrange Snowman Elements on Panel
I arranged the snowman elements in a melted snowman fashion on the front layering panel.
Adhere Layers and Complete Card
I adhered the front and inside layering panels together and stamped the sentiments. I added a narrow strip of the Hot Fudge cardstock to the left of the front sentiment for a little interest. Similarly, I added several iridescent snowflake sequins. I added narrow strips of Tangy Orange and Hot Fudge cardstock to the inside panel above the sentiment. The final step was adhering the panels to the card base.
