Frosty Mink - Christmas Greetings

Good afternoon everyone,

I hope for those of you who have  been fortunate enough to watch Phill's live shows on HOCHANDA today have enjoyed them so far.

The next show is 4.00pm and the last show for today is 7.00pm

Today's card is one from the show, which Phill did a variation of for one of his demo's.

For those of you who wish to replicate this, listed below are all the products used which can all be found on Phill's Website    www.honeypotcrafts.co.uk

8 x 8 Card Blank
White Card Stock
Frosty Mink P.V.A.
Frosty Mink Twinkles
Frosty Mink Gilding Wax
Frosty Mink Sparkle Texture Paste
Christmas Holly Sentiment Border Stamps
Cosmic Shimmer Ancient Copper Embossing Powder
Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice
Tracery 6 x 6 Mask
Sue Wilson Dies - Classic Poinsettia
Sue Wilson Dies - Mosaic Poinsettia
Sue Wilson Dies Portuguese Collection - Lisbon
Sue Wilson Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder

This is how I created it:-

Because of the drying time I started by using the Tracery Mask and Frosty Mink Texture Paste, as this needed about 2 hours to dry.

8 x 8 Card Blank
The first layer I cut to 7.75 square and edged it with Frosty Mink Gilding Wax and attached flat to the card.
The next layer I cut to 7.5 square and embossed it with the Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder, and attached flat to the card.


Making sure the texture paste was completely dry I then cut this out using the Lisbon Die and attached to the card using foam pads.

Next I  cut a strip of white card to 1.5" wide and stamped the Sentiment using one of the Border Stamps and heat embossed it with Ancient Copper Embossing Powder before embossing it with the Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder to match the background. Than added this to the card.

Finishing Touches

Next I cut the Poinsettias out and shaped these before attaching to the card. I then edged the petals with Cosmic Shimmer Glue and Glacier Ice, and finished with a Dazzler to the centres.
 Frosty Mink Twinkles were then used around the small die in the centre .
Finally I used Frosty Mink P.V.A. in the centres of each snowflake.

                                                                  Happy Crafting

  6. Hi barb and phill

  7. Morning Barb and Phill, yes I was lucky enough to see 3 of his shows, I was glued to the computer screen for most of the afternoon and evening, talk about square eyes, but I loved it, Phill is a laugh a minute with his cheeky giggle, he is infectious. I saw this card on the show and his version of it, I am going to try the double embossing on the petals because that looked fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing Barb, I really do appreciate it.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
