Happy Saturday!  Shellye McDaniel along today with a Christmas in July Forecast: Snow Flurries & A Reindeer…a themed card that is!  It’s never too late to start working on your Christmas cards and this one is a doll!

Forecast: Snow Flurries & A Reindeer by Shellye McDaniel for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Snow Card Basics

On a 5 x 7″ card base, I attached a 4.75 x 6.75″ card panel to the card base, using the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser loaded with the E-Z Runner® Grand Permanent Dots Refill. This is my go-to for card-making!

Here’s a short view on How to Use and Refill E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers

Then I’ve attached a 4.25 x 6.25″ black/white trees patterned paper with Crafty Foam Tape Black (13′). I used several strips of the Crafty Foam Tape to prevent the paper from collapsing between the strips.

Next, I added the beautiful snowflake printed vellum that was burnished. When you attach vellum, it can be a little tricky. I chose to place different sized 3D Foam Berries (from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit) over the center of each snowflake.

To embellish the centers of the snowflakes, I used various sizes of Adhesive Dots (Adhesive Dots SmallMedium, and  Large).

After removing the protective film from the Adhesive Dots, I sprinkled iridescent glitter over the tops. Just press the glitter to secure and tap off the excess. Love the results – beautiful sparkly snow!

Finishing Up

Lastly, I further embellished the card with a cute reindeer that I had stamped and watercolored.  To attach the reindeer, I used the 3D Foam Circles White Mix, along with other die-cuts.  I placed a 3D Foam Star (from the 3D Foam Holiday Embellishment Kit) and added silver glitter to the top of it, just below the bow.

For the most part, using vellum is easy, especially when you have great adhesive options from Scrapbook Adhesives!
