Hi there. Another challenge has begun at Cardz 4 Galz and this time we want to see something beginning with ‘S’ as the main image. Here is my Design Team card:
A couple of close-ups of the bling:
Well – I certainly went all-out with the glitter and shine, didn’t I?
The card stick if from Crafters Companion, and the pack comes with 2 blue shiny card, and the glimmer card. I only used only of the shiny cards to keep it more-or-less monochrome. I do like monochrome when it comes to Christmas cards.
The die set which cut the three layer star is from Presscut, which I bought at a crafting show a couple of weeks ago – especially for this challenge, actually. As a DT member, you know we get the challenge themes well before the challenge goes live – and I’m planning my cards for the next month……talk about organised!
I didn’t know which layer to put where on this star – so I cut all the layers in both the blue and glimmer card, and played around with them. I decided to put a white background behind it, just to show-case the lower blue layer, and a frame cut out of some square dies I have to – well – frame it!
I die cut the sentiment and adhered as you see – onto the glimmer card so it would show up better, but leaving the actual star itself open in all it’s glory……..I may have to cut this out of other colours too – loving that star.
I did find that I had to use the metal shim in my Gemini Junior to make sure it cut through both these card-stocks, as they have a coating, making it so a little more pressure is needed to get through that coating.
I hope you can come and join us – I am sure you have lots of ‘S’ themed dies and stamps……..Santa, Star, Snowflakes – just to name some Christmas ones.
I hope to see you in our gallery – and please visit out DT members blogs for hints and tips into their own creations.
