Well, on to the samples I have for today. The first one uses the Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die from the mini catalog with a Silver Glimmer snowflake on top. The snowflake was cut with the Northern Frost Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die. I have a tip to make cutting these easier: because the Silver Glimmer Paper is thick and Sizzlits dies are thin, this will cut much better if you separate the back paper from the front of the Silver Glimmer before you try to cut it with the Sizzlits die. The Silver Glimmer Paper cuts fine with any of the larger dies (Bigz and up) because they have a deeper cutting blade.
The second card uses the same image from the Pines & Poinsettias stamp set (can you tell it's my favorite of the set?). I used Dazzling Details glitter glue on top of the pine cones to add some interest and sparkle. That was then punched out with a circle punch (the exact size escapes me right now), then layered onto some Garden Green cardstock that was punched with a slightly larger circle punch, and then layered onto a decorative circle cut with the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The Whisper White cardstock behind it had some texture added with the Stripes TIEF. And there's that Frostwood Lodge DSP with some Early Espresso 3/8" Quilted Satin Ribbon. Can you see the shimmer of that ribbon in this picture? I LOVE this ribbon! (Both the Frostwood Lodge and the Quilted Satin Ribbon are only available in the Holiday Mini Catalog.)
Until next time...
