Well the new design team has I believe been chosen so I guess we are all waiting to see who made the team for the next year! I'll let you know the announcement as soon as I know! Back to this weeks design for my place on the design team and it's Christmas ( well we all need as much inspiration as [possible especially as its November already!)
This month we are using a selection of Sue Wilson's dies for Creative Expressions and I have chosen the Frosty mini background and the classic poinsettias for this weeks card.
I stared by cutting the background in coconut white foundation card. Next I made a frame for the background using Sues double pierced squares die range. I cut a larger frame using dies 3
and 7 in rich red foundation card . Next I embossed dies 6, 5 and four in coconut white and cut the frame out using dies 6 and 4 this gives a stunning embossed frame with additional piercing embossed into it.
I foam mounted this white frame over the red one and mounted the frosty background behind this. The frosty background is rectangular so I cut the excess off to make it into the square she. I feel its always important to remember that you don't need to use a die straight as it cuts you can use them in so many different ways!
I made up the Flowers and added a mini gold dazzler as a centre I then grouped these together with a few holly sparks I cut in Brunswick and pastel green foundation card. I added berries to the holly in the spaces provided using red apply twinkles from cosmic shimmer.
To see what the rest of the team have come up with then click HERE and leave a comment on there if you have time!
Back tomorrow with the first of my samples using the NEW Craft dies from Creative Expressions designed by Sue Wilson
