Christmas Snowflake Card - Crackle Texture Paste through Stencil with Glitter

Hello.  Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I am part of the Monthly Themed Hop Group. Each month we use up supplies that we have "squirreled away."  The theme this month is to make a Christmas Card and use Texture Pastes. I decided to use a Gina K Stencil, some crackle texture paste, and a Honeybee Stamps Sentiment.

Steps to create this card:
1. Sprayed the back of the Gina K Mandala Burst Stencil with Pixie Spray
2. Adhered the stencil to Accent Opaque 110 lbs. white card stock.
3. Using a plastic spatula, spread Crackle Paste through the stencil. 

4. Sprinkled Recollections Opaque Sparkle Vintage Blue Glitter Embossing Powder over the Texture Paste.

5. Allowed the stenciled glitter panel to dry overnight.
6. For the background panel, I used glimmer cardstock by Recollections (light blue)
7. I trimmed the stenciled glitter panel to 4 x 5 and layered in on top of the glimmer background panel
8. I used the Honeybee Stamps "Winter" Buzzcut Die. This die features three layers. The background is a stitched shadow. I used the blue glimmer cardstock by Recollections for that layer. For the middle layer I used silver foil cardstock. For the top sentiment layer I used white glimmer cardstock by Recollections. 
9. I adhered the sentiment to the front of the glitter panel with foam dots.
10. I found a sentiment in my stash that says "warm hugs." I stamped it on light blue cardstock with Versafine Clair Warm Breeze Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment with WOW Clear Hologram Sparkle embossing powder. I used a corner chomper to round the corners of the mini sentiment. I used foam dots to adhere this to the panel below the main sentiment. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you enjoyed my card. Next up in the hop is a YouTube Video by the fabulous Sharon Luska: https://youtu.be/RLwUjflnfy4
