Papers, sentiment and snowflakes: Ginger Bread Twist from Polka Doodles
X Cut label dies
Swiss Dots embossing folder
I printed the background paper straight on to my 8"x8" card base and distressed the edges. I then cut out a "hole" by hand, from the card base, which is covered with an embossed die cut frame. The sentiment was my definite starting point for my card as I adore it; simple but so thought provoking.
The large snowflake has been made by layering up 3 different types of snowflakes from the Gingerbread Twist CD (which were cut on my CraftRobo), finished with a red heart and seam binding ribbon knot. Really effective and textural and didn't take long to make.
The smaller snowflakes were made in the same way from different sized snowflakes ad finished with a red heart and Doodle Gem. The other photo shows how the large snowflake sits on the side and also a quick glimpse of how I decorated the inside of the card.
I am in the process of writing up a little explanation of how to import the cutting files and will post it once I have finished.
I am entering my card in to the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - dry embossing
Flourishes - Winter theme
Have a great weekend,
