Card : Baby it’s cold outside

This card was made for a CAS challenge:

This was the brief – “Your CAS challenge this week is to use a product, image, etc. that looks frozen! Stickles, glitter, ice skating, igloos, etc.”  and this was what I made


Am not particularly pleased with the heat embossing.


  • I used standard acrylic paints – black, purple and dark blue to create a night sky. I used a paintbrush as well as my fingers to blend in the colours.
  • The snow was created by splashing gesso on the panel. I also added stickles for dimension.
  • The sentiment was heat embossed (not very well 🙂 ) and the panel was adhered to the card blank which had faux stitching around it.


  • Stamps: Freebie sentiment from Creative Stamping
  • Paper: Handmade paper, 300gsm card blank
  • Paper Size: A6
  • Ink: Acrylic paint, gesso
  • Accessories: Stickles, White embossing powder, white gel pen
  • Techniques: Heat embossing, painting
