Right now you if you are visiting the 100 Proof Press Blog for the first time, I welcome you and hope you enjoy this marvelous set of cards by Teresa Abajo. Teresa has made a detailed tutorial for you to follow along:
A set of cards makes a wonderful gift for someone who appreciates the word involved, but is time-poor themselves. This set of cards requires a couple different double-sided papers, Winter Snowglobe Girl Stamp, some dies, and minimal coloring skills.
Step 1: Cut four card fronts from the patterned paper. I have used papers from KaiserCrafts Gingerbread range. Score and fold four white card bases.
Step 2: Cut a scalloped oval from the center of each patterned paper piece. This hole will be covered up in the final card. I have used Spellbinders dies.
Step 3: Cut some decorative ovals from white cardstock.
Step 4: Adhere the card fronts to the card bases, then layer the ovals over the hole.
Step 5: Stamp Winter Snowglobe Girl in water proof black ink. Cut with an oval die and sponge with brown ink before removing the die. This will leave an even white border around the die cut.
Step 6: Color the image with our preferred medium (I have used Distress Markers here). Add tiny blobs of Liquid Pearls to the snow and silver Stickles to the snowflakes above her head.
