We're having a Frantage fest this week &  at last I got to use the gorgeous Snowy Postcard stamp from Stampendous which I have been saving for this theme. I've stamped the image 3 times, twice with Deep Lagoon ( so that I could cut out the holly leaves to decoupage)  & once with Smoky Grey. As you will see I have then cut out & layered the pieces together. I then coated the whole piece with Versamark & embossed with Crystal powder  for a really glistening, icy look.  Next I layered this onto a piece of white which  I had sponged lightly around the edges with a blue inkpad. The next step was to frame the image with the Aged Silver powder before building up some chunky areas with the rest of the Frantage products & the Frantage method of heating from under the card. If you go to "You Tube" you will see Fran Seiford herself do some great demos using all the Frantage products. I covered the card blank with the silver pearl card &  attached the image. Pearl mica flakes were then added around the edges & a bow using a piece of the new wide organza ribbon from Woodware. The sentiment  comes from "Tis the Season" & I have embossed the edges of this too with Aged Silver & a few flakes of Shaved Ice.

Why not pop into Japonica & take a closer look!

  1. The photo of this card is great - but the textures of it in "real life" are just frantastic! I can't get enough of FRANTAGE -it really adds that extra something to a card design doesn't it! I love this one Debbie!!
