I’m loving this clean and simple design featuring the Oak Tree from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set and Black Ice paper crafting technique.
Todays project was so quick and easy to make! The focal piece was made with the Black Ice paper crafting technique, which involves just a few quick steps! There are several links to learn more about this technique ahead.
After creating the focal piece, I simply attached it to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock, tied a piece of the Shimmer Black ribbon around it, and popped the whole thing up on dimensionals. Below is a close up of the Black Ice look. My favorite little section is in the lower right hand corner where you can see the streaks of both the black and the “ice” droplets.
Here’s another close up:
As I was designing this card, I knew I needed some additional embellishments. When I tried the Clear Faceted Gems in the lower right hand corner I immediately new I had the perfect element to complement the focal piece. I just love the glass like, shiny look of these gems!
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project made with the Black Ice Technique. A complete supply list is included ahead with links to my Online Store.
