Today, I am sharing a card I made for my lovely upline Mikaela to congratulate her on achieving the Alaska incentive trip. She has put so much time and effort into winning this trip for herself and her family and so deserves it. She is an amazing mentor and team leader. Go Mikaela…………x
AS the trip is to Alaska the card had to have an icy theme so I started by using the snowflakes from the, oh so versatile, Colorful Seasons stamp set. I stamped them in Island Indigo ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 7⅞” by 3⅞”. I knew the card base had to be long to accommodate all those letters……….. I took the stamped panel to the Big Shot and die cut the letters A, L, A, S, K, A from the panel using the Large Letter framelit dies. I then ran the same letters through again using lots of scrap Whisper White cardstock until I had a total of 4 of each of the letters – 12 A’s in total…….
Using Tombow Liquid Adhesive I added the stamped layer with the cut out letters onto a panel of the gorgeous, new Champagne Glimmer paper. I took each letter in turn and adhered 3 Whisper White die cuts to the back to form a stack of each letter 4 pieces high; before adding each letter back into the appropriate space on the stamped panel. I love the dimension the stacks of letters give to this project.
I added some of the tiny stars from the Star of Light stamp set in So Saffron ink along the top above the letters and glued the whole panel to an Island Indigo card base using Tombow Liquid Adhesive. I added a 7⅞” by 3⅞” piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside having stamped down the edge using the snowflakes from the Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set in Island Indigo, Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Pool party ink. I added the sentiment from the Lift Me Up stamp set which seemed so appropriate in Island Indigo ink. I stamped the envelope using the same stamps and colours.
I really love the simplicity of the card and really hope Mikaela likes it.
