One More Winter Stream

 Winter Stream Stamp Set #601 is one of my favorite stamp set. It is so beautiful and peaceful scene.

You don't need much to make a stunning card with it. As you can see, I didn't used any embellishments, just two embossing powders and two glitters.

Icicles are colored with Versamarker pen and heat embossed with Sparkle EP. I love this faux ice look you can achieve with this embossing powder. All the snow on the ground is covered with Sakura Glue Pen and Crystal Ice Glitter. It would much quicker to use SNS Brushable Glue but I always forget to wash the Brush after use.

Snowcaps on the trees and on the rocks are covered with SNS Dimensional Glue and Crystal Ice Glitter. I drew some lines to the water with Sakura Glue Pen and covered them with Waterfall Glitter.

Card base is cut with Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles dies. I inked the card front with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Blue Silver EP. I adore this EP. It's so pretty and sparkly.
A little tip for you: Don't cover center of the card front with EP. You can save the EP this way :) OK, the real reason is that foam tape will adhere better to the plain cardstock then it adheres to the melted embossing powder.

Inside of the card is made out of two die cut layers. They are adhered together with 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape. I placed the tape in the way that it shows through the holes. Revealed tape is covered with Crystal Ice Glitter.

You can make most out of your dies by using them as a template, like I did on this card. I placed the die on top of the stamped image, traced the inner frame to the cardstock and cut it out with the scissors. Then I used the same die to die cut a matting layer for the image.
