Its back to Creative Wednesday and my creation for the Creative Expressions Design Team Blog, Click HERE if you want to see what the rest of the team have made and, if you have time, leave a comment!
This month we are working with a selection of Sue Wilson's Festive dies from last year and this year! I decided to show a card made with the new Stamps to die for and the beautiful Snowflake Deboss die which is fast becoming a favourite this year.
I stared by stamping the shooting stars background in perfect medium, on vintage gold card, and heat embossing it with cosmic Shimmer true detail white embossing powder. Next I stamped and embossed the matching shooting stars medallion stamp. I cut this out using the deboss snowflake die using the largest outline die for the surround and the centre die form the set cut out the merry Christmas sentiment.
I then cut and embossed the snowflake debases, with the centre die in place, to make 2 further frames.
To make up the card I made a series of mats and layers in vintage gold and white however i embossed the 2 smallest pieces of the gold using the Creative Expressions A4 embossing folder holly swirl. I then matted the card together, suing foam tape for dimension, finishing with the stamped n]background panel at the front.
This would be a special Christmas card however there are several techniques you can take from here your batch cards I'm sure!
