Our recent combined blog hop with Die-Versions was so much fun. It was really neat to see what everyone created with the different products. Thank you to everyone that left comments.x
I thought I would share one more card I made using one of the new Die-Versions dies, Whispers Holly Branch. This makes a lovely but fairly simple holiday card.
The image is from the Christmas Holly stamp set. It was stamped and colored with copics in the center of a piece of white cardstock. Then I ran “Tear-ific” tape around all the edges and added Gyspsy Red Velvet Glitter. This was layered onto the white card base.
I covered a smaller piece of white cardstock with a super adhesive sheet and die cut an oval window out of the center. After removing the protective layer, I covered this with Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter and then I ran it through an embossing folder (see Dry Embossing on Velvet Glitter in Tips and Techniques). The embossed design doesn’t not show a lot in the picture but it leaves a nice subtle design. Then I used dimensionals to pop this up on the card front with the image centered in the window.
Next I cut out 2 of the Holly Branch die cuts from white cardstock. I trimmed off a small section of each so that they did not extend too far over the image in the window and used dimensional glue to adhere them to two opposite corners. I added the small pieces I cut off to the ends of the swirly die cuts so they extended a little further on each side. I had planned to add glitter to these die cuts, but decided I liked how the plain white stood out on the glittered/embossed top layer.
Thanks for stopping by!
