Seasons Greeting Keepsake using Clearsnap & Xyron

Hi there,
Today I'm sharing a Holiday Keepsake that I created with Clearsnap and Xyron. I really enjoyed combining the products. Clearsnap's Spritzer and Smooch Glitz made creating the background for this keepsake very simple and quick. Xyron adhesive made the layering easy and fun. I included a tutorial below:



Clearsnap: ColorBox Spritzers, Smooch Glitz, ColorBox Cat's Eye Pigment Ink

DCWV Stack: Mercury Glass

Cream Cardstock

Wooden Frame (7 3/4 x 7 3/4)

Wooden Sentiment

Felt Ribbon

Flowers & Berries

Craft Mat

Water Mister

Clear Embossing Powder

Embossing Folder

Die Cut/Embossing Machine

Heat Tool

Xyron Adhesive: The New Creative Station

Hot Glue




 Step 1: Spray ColorBox Spritzer and water onto craft mat.
 Step 2: Lay cardstock on top of Spritzer and water.

Step 3: Turn inked cardstock over and let dry. Note: Ink as many sheets as possible with remaining ink on craft mat. The additional sheets can be used for future projects.

Step 4: Apply Smooch Glitz to craft sheet and lay inked cardstock on top of the Smooch Glitz. Let dry.

Step 5: Emboss inked cardstock using 8 1/2 x 11 embossing folder and die cutting machine. Trim embossed cardstock to 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 and set aside.

Step 6: Directly apply Cats Eye pigment ink to wooden sentiment. Apply clear embossing powder, shake off excess and heat using heat tool.

Step 7: Run paper layers through the New Creative Station and adhere to wooden frame.
Step 8: Adhere felt ribbon.
Step 9: Enhance flowers with Cats Eye chalk and adhere flowers, leaves and berries to frame.
Step 10: Adhere bows and wooden sentiment.
