The purpose of "Simple Special Stunning" is to show how each issue of SheetLoad can be adapted for papercrafters of all levels. Whether it is sticking exactly to the sketch, or adding some extra bling.
• Followed sketch, but only used one (1) cardstock and patterned paper for everything else.
• Sponged all edges with Stampin' Up! Close to Cocoa ink
• Added shrink plastic sentiment
• Added vellum swirls around the bow
• 'Fluff' was added to Santa's cap and some sparkle to his beard
• In addition to all of the 'special' additions pearl flourishes and faux snow on the snowflake were added.
**To make the pearl flourishes, Denise placed them on a transparency, cut them out, then adhered to the card.
