Papercutting...

Happy Monday,

I'm introducing the brand new paper cuts dies form Creative Expressions.  The festive range of four dies are simply stunning and are designed to emulate the effects you get with hand paper cutting but without the fuss!

I decided to seat, as I would, with box using all four of the dies cut in ancient copper pearl card and mounted onto an acetate box.

I thought this was a great way to show all four and introduce them before I launch them on Hochanda as the ODS at 8pm on Wednesday night!


The main die shown on the first side is the Christmas tree and to highlight the border I filled the space with silver PVA dimensional glue. this gives the mother of pearl frame that is visible when you look carefully lol

The next side shows the festive baubles die on the right and the reindeer on the left .






















The final picture shows the fourth die the festive feast !

Over the next couple of days I will be showing a few more samples as Ive made loads!!

Enjoy...
