Hello! Who has already started on their Christmas cards? These dies from Birch Press Designs sure puts me in the mood to get a head start.
For the card today I used the Issa Snowflake layering die (layering A only) and the Big Peace Sugar Script Die.
My first steps were to take some watercolor paper and do a little ink smooshing with Distress Oxide Ink in Mermaid Lagoon. I dried between the three layers of ink to create different variations in color.
Once I got a look I was pleased with I added some white splatter with the Distress Oxide Picket Fence re-inker.
While that dried I gathered some silver glitter card stock to use for the snowflake die. What I love about this die is that it is so versatile. This die is a set of 3, but I only used one die, Layer A. Look at what you get with one die cut!
You can create 3 different looks! I can only imagine how beautiful this die would look with the other two layers.
I die cut out the two inner pieces of the snowflake a few times. I wanted enough to fill my card panel which measured 5 1/4″ x 4.”
I then glued all the snowflake pieces to my card panel once the white splatter was dry. I die cut out the Peace Script Die out of some light blue and white card stock. I then added some foam tape for dimension and attached my sentiment. I added fun foam to the back of my panel and adhered it to my card base.
I love these layering dies so much. One layer can create such a beautiful card. Hope you enjoyed today’s card!
