Swedish House Crafts - Gummiapan Sweet Girl Ellie With Snowman

Hello, lovely blogger friend's!

I'm here with my DT card for Swedish House Crafts.
I have made a Christmas card featuring one of the gorgeous stamps by Gummiapan. The stamp that I chose to colour is called Sweet Girl Ellie With Snowman. Aren't they just the sweetest duo?

I have used many other gorgeous products on my card that are available from the store.

Links to the products are in text, and can be found at the end of my post.

For the shape of my card I used Gummiapan old paper die, and Maja Design "Vintage Frost Basic" 6 x 6 paper stack. I have also cut the papers using the old paper die. The snowflakes in the top left hand corner of the card have been die cut using Gummiapan snowflake. The pretty lace, and pearl trim are from my stash.
Other dies that I used from my stash are; Marianne Design Anja's Vintage decoration and Ivy circle.
Spirit of Christmas snowflake border, Cheery Lynn English tea party doily, Joy Crafts Winter sentiment, and Sizzix holiday greens.

I stamped the image onto Bristol board extra smooth cardstock with Memento toffee crunch ink, and coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.

I used a Roxstamps stitched circle die to cut white card, and stamped around the inside of it with the Gummiapan Angelpost stamp. I inked the outside of the circle with Vintage photo distress ink, and sprinkled a little shabby white embossing enamel inside the circle.

I die cut a larger stitched circle with the design paper, and matted the smaller one onto it with 3D foam tape. I cut around the image, and adhered it to the circle with 3D foam tape I coated the snowman with glamour dust to give a nice sparkly effect, and adhered some micro beads to look like bird seed onto the centre of the snowman's hand. I used Snow-Tex on the ground. The pearl bead string that I have adhered around the outside is from my stash.

I built the snowman using the metal dies from Doohickey club vol 12 Christmas 2016. I die cut the snowman's head and body with white card, and coated them with glamour dust. I adhered a piece of black card behind the snowman's face so that his eyes and mouth could be seen. I coloured the nose and cut the twigs, and heart using the design papers. I assembled him with 3D foam tape.

Vol 12 isn't available to buy anymore as the collections are limited edition, but vol 16, and 17 are currently available to pre order from Swedish House Crafts. Vol 16 is "Fall In Love", and Vol 17 is "Christmas & Winter".

I used a selection of flowers for the arrangements. The large rose, 25mm rose, and white flower spray are from my stash. The pine cones, and curled paper flowers are from the store. I have given the arrangements a light coating with Snow-Tex.

Inside the card is decorated to complement the front.
I hope I have inspired you to make something Christmassy with the products that I used?

Thank you for stopping by to visit today!
Big hugs for all the lovely comments.

  5. This card is really stunning!!!! 😍
    Thank you for the extanded description of how you put it all together... very inspiring. I started making cards again Since ages but find it always a challenge to put all those die cut pieces on the card in a nice way. Mostly after finishing I think I should have done more like you did here.
    Maybe you could take a look at my latest card and tell me what I could have done more? And please just be honest when you see something you don't like! Thanks in advance 🤗

  6. So pretty!
