Just a warning, this is an instruction-filled and Lawn Fawn-filled post. I created these giveaway cards as a part of a Holiday/Christmas card exchange. I am very late in sending these out to my overseas card group mates. I hope the wait will be worth it.
I started off by creating the phone ornaments. I traced the Selfie phone die to a white 110 lb. cardstock and manually cut along the traced lines. I also die cut the phone thrice on 110 lb. cardstock and a gold pearl cardstock. I lightly traced the phone opening on the solid white cardstock to serve as a guide in creating my scene.
I stamped the snowmen from the Ready, Set, Snow stamp set on the solid white cardstock. I created masks for the snowmen and the trees from the same stamp set. Using the Stitched Hillside Borders die, I created a hill mask. I stamped the trees on the background and masked them as well. I masked the edges of the frame and blended Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Salty Ocean on the scene. I tapped some pearlized water droplets to this blended area and patted it dry with a paper towel.
I took off the mask for the hill. I blended Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Iced Spruce for the snow bank. Covering the sky area with paper, I spritz pearlized water onto this to create a shimmery snow bank.
I completely took the masks off the images and colored the snowmen using Copic markers. Coloring the images didn't use much effort since I did not use a lot of colors. What took some time was adding details to the snowmen and the trees. For the trees, I applied glue to the white areas using a glue pen. I poured Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Rock Candy to the glued areas while the glue is wet. After this had dried, I applied clear Wink of Stella to the green areas. For the snowmen, I used my stash of colored pens to create the patterns on the hats, earmuff and scarf. I used a Black Sakura Glaze pen for the eyes, buttons and ear muff band. I had to trace the scarf with a black marker because some of the impressions got covered by the colored pens.
I stacked about 3 Selfie phone die cuts. I used double adhesive tape to adhere the die cuts on top of the other. The stamped piece is bigger than the Selfie phone die cuts. I trimmed off the excess after stacking the die cuts on it.
I created another snow slope by using the negative cuts of the Selfie phone cut, applied a double adhesive tape to one side, and die cut it using the Stitched Hillside Border die. I removed the backing and poured Elizabeth Crafts Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter over it. I rubbed my finger to burnish the glitter and adhered the slope to the front of the snowmen, puzzle piecing it to the negative space of the Selfie phone.
To create the shaker, I adhered a plastic film on the back of the pearl gold Selfie Phone die cut. I used double adhesive tape as well. I poured Martha Stewart Seed Beads and Iridescent Glitter onto the well. If you noticed, I kind of overdid the shakers on one of the phones. Sometimes, I cannot help it! I adhered the pearl gold die cut on top of the stacked die cuts to seal the shaker.
I wanted to make this into a tree ornament. I traced another white cardstock using the Selfie phone die and stamped a sentiment from Tiny Tag Sayings stamp set using Versamark ink. I poured Wow! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder, then heat set it. I embossed a Stitched Square Frame to draw the attention to the embossed sentiment because I don't plan to add anything else to this panel.
To make this into an ornament, I cut some Siver Sparkle Single Cord, made a loop, and tied a knot at the end. I adhered this to the back of the shaker card using a strong double sided tape. I sandwiched this by adhering the sentiment panel on top of it and cut the excess again. The phone ornament is now finished!
To create the phone ornament holder, which served as my greeting card, too, I trimmed a 4 1/2"x 5 1/2" brown cardstock which will be the base of the card. I trimmed the patterned paper from Knit Picky Petite Paper Pack at 4" x 5 1/4" and traced the phone die on the middle of the patterned paper. I used a We R Memory Keepers Notch Punch to create tabs that will hold the phone ornament. I used a craft knife to create the window.
I used the Stitched Square Frame die to create the stitched impressions on the sides of the paper. I had to do partial die cutting since my die is square shaped. It didn't turn out perfect in some spots but still relatively okay.
I heat embossed sentiments from the Tiny Tag Sayings stamp set using a white embossing powder and stamped the snowflakes from the Ready, Set, Snow stamp set using Delicata White Shimmer Ink. I set this aside to dry. Next, I adhered foam adhesives to the back of the patterned paper. Then, I adhered this on top of the brown cardstock making sure the stamping I did showed through the window. Now, I can slide the phone under the tabs. Like the presentation?
Thank you for visiting my blog. I apologize for the lengthy post. Usually, I would skip the part of sharing the steps especially if it is lengthy but after seeing the outcome, I feel this is worth sharing. Do email me or leave a comment if you have any questions? Have a blessed & brilliant day!
