Morning all, greetings from Sunny Leicester!
Firstly a quick answer to questions yesterday, the die used for the background on yesterdays Christmas card was Spellbinders Expandable Pattern Botanical Swirls .
Todays Christmas in August card is in frosty shades of blues and white. Again this is a very simple card with an embossed background and one, that's right just one, die cut.
The background is a Spellbinders embosability folder which I rubbed blue ink over to create the letterpress background technique. I then added some stick on pearls in the centre of the snowflakey (is that even a word) bit. This was matted in navy then white, then silver before foam mounting onto a sheet of PMD navy A4 card folded in half.
The topper is an old Spellbinders snowflake die (don't know which one as I bought these on eBay with no packaging) cut in white which I then inked through the die in the centre. The sentiment is from the same set as I used yesterday which is a See Dee die set, again a bargain purchase on eBay!
Finally I draped navy and white ribbon behind the snowflake to give a different look from a bow.
