Learn five ways to use glossy accents on your cards!
I have been on a bit of a stencil kick lately. I decided to use a snowflake stencil to get a start on holiday mini cards. Every year I make tons of cinnamon rolls and I give out a pan to each of my neighbors. I like to put the pans in pretty bags with ribbon. I think I’ll attach these mini cards to the ribbon to really up my game this year!
Since I was making several mini cards, I decided to try out several different glossy accent techniques. Check out my YouTube video below and learn all about these fun techniques!
Materials to Make Glossy Accents Mini Snowflake Cards
- Stencils. You can use any stencil you like. I used Lawn Fawn Starry Sky and Snowflake stencils for this project.
