Winter Fairy Easel Card

Dawn Rene here to share an easel card I made for The Rubber Cafe using their Winter Fairy stamp.
I just love their fairy stamp series!

Here is a brief tutorial on how I put the card together.

1. I decided this card was going to be glitzy gold. So I took out some gold Perfect Pearls, gold embossing powder, and thick embossing enamel (it is actually white embossing enamel but it has a lot of gold glitter in it).

2. I stamped the Winter Fairy with Perfect Medium on white cardstock and heat embossed the image with gold embossing powder. She looks beautiful just like that - but of course I couldn't stop there.

3. I mixed some gold Perfect Pearls with water and painted the embossed image with a brush. It is really difficult to see in the pictures but I also used white Perfect Pearls as highlights in certain areas. In person she shines beautifully!

4. I cut out the the image and a frame with a circle cutter.

5. Then I sprinkled white embossing enamel around the paper and heated it from underneath.

6. I also covered chipboard snowflakes with the the white embossing enamel. I dusted gold glitter on the paper flowers adhering it with Goosebumps Texture liquid.

7. Then I cut out some tags and corrugated board and dusted gold glitter around the edges of those as well with Goosebumps Texture liquid.

9. I stamped and heat embossed the Chinese Proverb by Lao Tzu on a piece of patterned paper and cut it out by hand into a banner shape.

10. I built the base of the easel card scoring and folding a piece of 6" x 12" white cardstock at 6" and 9".

11. I glued patterned papers, the snowflakes and the sentiment down with Scrap Happy Glue. I adhered the top of the card as well.
