If Kisses Were Snowflakes...

It is Christmas In July at Sparkle N Sprinkle with all the new Christmas sets.  E. Marie here to share a card using the new Christmas set, Milton Catching Snowflakes.  This guy is adorable with his scarves and comes with four great sentiments.

I chose to create a “gap” card since I have seen so many great samples lately.  Most of these cards actually leave an actual gap between the top and bottom front sections, held together by an image or sentiment, but I chose to support this one with a piece of acetate.

After adding decorative cardstock on the top and bottom layers, Dimensional Glue was run around the edges and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft was added to look like snow.

The image was heat embossed with Detail Black embossing powder and colored with Copic markers.  Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter was added to the scarves and snowflake using a glue pen.  This was layered to the right side of the card.

I used the digital version of this set to print the sentiment and layered this on the inside of the card so the sentiment would show in the open gap.  Here is a picture of the inside.  I added white layers on the inside top and bottom of the card front to make it look neater and cover any exposed adhesive from adding the acetate.

I know you will love playing with this card style and hope you enjoyed seeing this cute set.
