Hello there, today I have a card to share using the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Kit for November 2020. This month is called 'Frankie Goes to the North Pole' and it is so fun! Frankie (the snowman) has two different poses in the kit, along with ski's, a tree, a North Pole sign and lots of fab accessories. For my card today, I kept it pretty simple and just created Frankie skiing down a slope, but you can definitely get more adventurous with him!
I started off by cutting Frankie from FSJ Whip Cream and Black Licorice Cardstock. I used Oatmeal Cookie for his arms and Lavender Fusion for his accessories. His ski poles are cut from silver cardstock from the Sparkle Trio Specialty Set. I assembled him together using FSJ Craft Glue (apart from the ski poles) and set him aside while I worked on the background.
I took a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of white cardstock and using memo tape, masked off a snow hill on the bottom half of the panel. I then blended inks above it for the sky. I used FSJ Blue Lagoon and Turbo Teal True Color Fusion Ink Pads and a blending brush. I then splattered on some of the Blue Lagoon colour, followed by white gouache, removed the memo tape and set it aside to dry.
I took the sentiment from the Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments Series 2 Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set and foiled it on to white cardstock using Black Foil. They were then cut in to strips using the sentiment die in the set. Once the panel was dry, it was adhered flat to an A2 white card base and Frankie was added on top with foam squares, as well as the sentiment. I then added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to Frankie's eyes and Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to the band on his hat, as well as his gloves. I was then able to adhere the ski poles to his gloves while the glitter drops were wet.
