Snow Queen

** 12/7/18 Top 5 at QKR Stampede! **

Hi everyone! A brand new challenge is live over at Gecko Galz this morning and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for the December “Snow Queens” Customer Challenge!

Dec chall badge
The Winter Release is here and I used an absolutely gorgeous image from the Snow Queens 2 Collage Sheet and Fairyland paper from the Neverland Paper Collection. What gorgeous blues, don’t you agree?!

I layered the background paper on black cardstock and adhered it to the blue card base. I cut the image and the ‘snow queen’ name from the collage sheet. I applied Versamark over the entire image and then embossed it with Sparkle embossing powder and again with clear embossing powder to lock in the sparkle. I layered the image on black cardstock and again on silver mirror cardstock, adhered Foamies foam to the back, layered it on cream cardstock, and then adhered the piece to the background panel. I adhered the ‘snow queen’ name under the layered image.

For the inside, I layered the cream panel on black cardstock, embellished it with a strip of the leftover paper from the front, and stamped a sentiment.

Here’s one more look… you can just barely see the sparkle in the photo but it looks amazing in real life! Super happy with how this turned out!
