Fall from the stars...
Today's card is another demo piece from the takeover weekend which starts tonight at 8pm!
With this one I wanted to show how festive dies and embossing folders can be used all year round. As many of you know I count myself as a frugal yorrkshireman and I like to get the most from my craft products therefore, whenever I buy Festive products I always try ( but don't always succeed) to get ones that will work all year. Todays card is a perfect expample of this being made as a winter birthday card. A change of colour and perhaps the snowflakes and it would work all year round.
I started by cutting the lattice snowflake die in white in the centre of a cut rectangle of the white. I then cut the largest oval from the set from periwinkle card and added a frame cut with both of the ovals included in the set. I foam mounyted these and continued cutting the dies in the set in layers of the blue and white.
I embossed the main front piece using the twinkle twinkle A4 embossing folder before rubbing pearl moon gilding wax over the top.
I then added snowflakes cut from white from the snowflakes setand added them around the main frame and the additional layers of blue and white I added and enbossed. I added PVa dimensional glue dots using Phill Martin's Forsted Sky range of Cosmic Shimmer colours.
Don't forget that there will be Julia, Phill, Lisa and I all weekend on hochnada starting with me at 8pm tonight! Don't forget everything I have used today will be available over the weekend at some great sale prices!
