It may seem strange that on a very warn day here in the UK – and Easter as well – I have created a Christmas card. I was so inspired to use a new die set, from a company based in Germany – that it just had to happen…..
I chose to use the Perfectly CAS theme for this card, which I feel works quite well. It’s hard to photograph a card with glitter and sparkles, and sometimes the white doesn’t look crisp – but I assure you this is a very crisp cut in real life.
I used white card stock for the house die – it’s meant to be a panorama die, but this time I also die cut a gold glitter card with a circle juts slightly bigger – to create a gold border around the die itself – and the background for the houses.
For such an intricate die – all those little windows – it cur very well in my Sizzix fold-away – but I did cut with the die facing upwards just in case.
The sentiment is gold heat embossed using a stamp from a Clearly Besotted stamp set.
I liked this simple design so much, I created several more with different colours of glitter card – black, silver, pink – and they all look lovely. I will change the sentiment up on those, and have them ready for later in the year.
