Hello Poppystamps fans!

Sphoorti here with another item from the 2021 Holiday Release - the Snowflake Oval Frame die. This one was very easy to make, and I actually don't have any lessons learned this time. Can you believe it? I guess there's only so many ways you can mess up a card!

So, I'd be lying if I told you that this was the plan I had in mind when I made this card. I actually didn't plan this card at all. I had a piece of alcohol ink background from like years ago and it resurfaced when we were unpacking, and it was the perfect size for the Snowflake Oval Frame so I went with it! Cardendipity, I like to call it.

I used silver foiled cardstock to cut the frame. I lined the frame with skinny foam tape, filled the shaker bits (Diamond Dust, my favorite), and put the shaker portion against the alcohol ink background and that was it, actually! I didn't cut out multiple frames and stack them on top of each other to create the well because I wanted the snowflake portions of the frame to "freely float". Then I used the Playful Hugs sentiment die and cut a bunch with white card stock, stacked them to make a chipboard like sentiment. I used the same silver foiled cardstock for the top layer, and adhered the sentiment to the middle of the frame. And that's it!

I'm posting a bunch of pictures of the card below. Acetate, Foil, Alcohol Inks... Incredibly beautiful but can be vicious when it comes to taking pictures! So, I tried different angles, filters, you name it. Feel free to pick your favorite!

In the above picture, you can see the "floaty" effect of the oval frame.

I actually tried to use some foil on the alcohol ink background. I think it was too dry by the time I tried, so it only got stuck to some portions. It's the gold stuff. Some of the shaker bits cover it, but it's a nice effect in real life. It would have been even more awesome if I found a background with silver foil that matched the rest of the card. I may be asking for too much!D690354F-0DEA-43A5-8F69-E4529B4BD693
