Skater Family!

The Stampendous Design Team has a theme of "Winter Friends" this week. We have a darling new stamp set by that name (CLICK HERE to see it). I'm combining the weekly theme with our Stencil Thursday theme. What's better than spending time at the holidays with family and friends! This great Skater Family (DWLL575) from the Dreamweaver Stencils line is paired with the beautiful new Holly Pattern Metal Stencil (FMS4043) from Stampendous and Dreamweaver's Merry Christmas stencil (DWLS92).

"Winter Family Fun!"

My Color Cardstock - Sky
Memento Ink Summer Sky
Rubber Embossing Mat

Removable Tape
Foam Tape

Step 1:  Fold a 7" x 10" piece of Sky cardstock in half to form an A7 card
Step 2: Cut a 1 1/2" x 2 5/8" piece of Sky cardstock, tape the Merry Christmas stencil on it with removable tape
Step 3:  Cut a 2 5/8" x 5 1/2" piece of Sky cardstock, tape the Skater Family stencil on it with removable tape
Step 4:  Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply Glossy White Embossing Paste over the designs, remove stencils and place in water for cleaning later
Step 5:  Sprinkle the wet paste with Crystal Glitter, tap off extra, let paste dry
Step 6: Mount the dry Merry Christmas  on a 1 3/4" x 2 7/8" mat of white cardstock and the Skater Family on a 2 7/8" x 5 3/4" white mat
Step 7:  Use the Rubber Embossing Mat and die cut machine to dry emboss a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white using the Holly Pattern stencil, trim the embossed image close to the design
Step 8:  Use a 1/2" stencil brush and the Summer Sky ink to brush some color over the embossed design, then use the edge of the ink pad along the edge of the panel to darken it
Step 9:  Adhere the Holly Pattern near the upper left corner of the card and the Skater Family near the lower right
Step 10:  Use foam tape to apply the Merry Christmas to the card front
