I thought I would give, as promised, another chance to win one of my background stamps, I will also include one of the cards I made with the stamp as bonus! All you need to do to be in with chance is to be a follower and leave a comment on any day this week. I will include one entry for each day you comment from today until Friday!
Back to today and another of Sue's new release of festive dies that add to her latest collection. Today I have used the new mini snowflake background which, again, is great for smaller or batch cards, believe it or not this is a small card form me just being 14x14cm.
I stared by die cutting the background in coconut white foundation card I then mounted it onto another piece of coconut white onto which I had added sheet of A4 double sided adhesive sheet. I rubbed iced snow over all the exposed adhesive area to add a bit of bling. To colour the piece I brushed on Phil Martins new Frosty Sky mica powder. This coloured the iced snow and I shaded the piece by adding more mica powder at the edges.
I wrapped a strip of blue white seam binding around the topper and added a bow made from twine (from my stash) and a felt flower made using the classic folder flower die from Sue Wilson for creative expressions. To make the card I embossed a piece of coconut white foundation card using the snowflake mask form that special touch and added frosty sky gilding wax over the snowflakes so they 'pop'. This is layered with cobalt foundation card and added to a layer embossed with the frosty swirls embossing folder. Finally I added Let It Snow form the previous release which I cut from card with the adhesive and added the mica to make the sentiment shine (which it does in real life honest!)
A smaller car for me however you could make a larger one or, again as yesterday, make your batch cards simply using this die on its own to cut a beautiful aperture into pre-folded cards.
