One of the newly released stamp sets for July is
Now I don't know about you,
but I love, love to work with silly characters like these guys,
I first die cut a square using a Tutti Designs Nested Stitched Square die.
Using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink,
I stamped the image in the center, then colored with my Copics.
I added Pink Spirit Sparkle N Soft Flocking to each flamingo
by first applying Dimensional Glue to each bird.
First applying a tiny bit of glue to each hat pompom,
I then added Sparkling Snow glitter.
I once again used the Dimensional Glue to the snow at the bottom,
then the Sparkling Snow glitter.
For the finishing touch, google eyes were added to each bird
(sorry I couldn't help myself..lol)!
I set this aside to dry and next cut a Palm Tree die from Frantic Stamper.
The base was colored with Copics and Sakura Glue Pen was added to the fronds,
then Margarita glitter.
I die cut a Let It Snow word from Tonic,
using the Nuvo Large Glue Pen, I coated the die cut with glue,
then adding the Sparkling Snow glitter to it.
The card base is a small 'step' card.
The measurements to cut your card stock are
4 1/4" x 11" and a base panel 4 1/4" x 5 1/8".
Score the larger piece with the 11" piece along the top at
1 1/4' ~ 2 1/2" ~ 4 1/4" ~ 6" ~ 8 1/4"
Fold mountain, valley and repeat.
I added 1 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to each of the smaller folds,
just trim off the excess.
The back panel piece I added a piece of 1 1/2" Tear-ific Tape
on the 4 1/4" sides (top and bottom)
and a small piece of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape on each 5 1/8" side.
These were then sprinkled with Sparkle N Soft Pink Spirit Flocking.
I put all the pieces together as shown and lastly added a small
Spellbinders label die cut for a place to leave a message or sign a name.
This is the cutest and fun little step card,
I hope you will give it a try!
