all, are you? LOL) Oh well, I am trying! Today's card is really very easy to do but it does take a bit of time as it uses a re-insertion technique. This technique is incredibly easy to do with simpler dies, but does take a bit of patience when there is a delicate frilly edge to the die you are working with. Basically I used the Decorative Labels one die and cut an aperture in my navy blue card. I then used the New Year Dove embossing folder by Couture Creations and embossed the aperture for texture. I cut another one of the same die out of white card and used the snowflake die to cut an aperture out of the centre of the die. I replaced the white die in the opening of the blue card and from the back of the card, I taped it back into place, just catching the edge of the white die with my tape. I cut various smaller snowflakes and scattered them diagonally across the top of my card as accents. I stamped my sentiment (from the Justrite Elegant Christmas sentiment set) on a larger piece of white card and mounted my reinserted snowflake on foam pieces above it. I added some flatback pearls to my snowflakes and sentiment and finished the card with my signature pierced double mat. Finished dimensions are 7" x 9" in size.
A quick reminder that Julia Watts has shows today on Create and Craft. She will be on the ToolShed show at noon and then again at 5pm. Julia has new Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies and they are gorgeous! Be sure to tune in to see her lovely samples and demos.
