20191110_164156

This is a 4 x 4" Gate Fold card: cut base card 11 x 4" and then score at 2, 3-3/4, 7-1/4, and 9". This fits in a Stampin' Up! medium envelope. (Don't use a square envelope because it's extra US postage.)

20191110_164126

The realistic bunny is colored with Stampin' Up! Blends alcohol markers: Light Smoky Slate and Ivory. To create the snow, I dotted on SNOWFALL ACCENT PUFF PAINT #150691 and sprinkled it with ICE STAMPIN' GLITTER #150445. Then I heated the puff paint with a heat tool and the glitter adhered. You can also adhere the glitter with SHIMMERY CRYSTAL EFFECTS #150892.

How to use Snowfall Accents Puff Paint

20191026_152724

When I first saw the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint #150691 in the Holiday Catalog, I thought of these Cotton stalks in the Country Home Stamp Set #147678. It's the PERFECT touch of fluffy texture!

20191026_152822

The little bottle of magic, puffs up like: snow, cotton, lamb's wool, clouds or whipped cream!!

20191026_154701

Experiment and practice before using this product on your finished design. For larger areas, you can apply the puffing liquid right from the tip of the bottle. I wanted small cottony puffs on my card so this worked well for me;

    1. SHAKE bottle.

    2. Apply a small puddle on scrap paper.

    3. Use a toothpick to dot liquid in small areas. Use less than you think because it will expand.

    4. Heat with a Heat Tool to puff. It grows as it puffs! LOTS OF FUN!!
