Hello there. I have been playing with a new-to-me die set from Tim Holtz:
I first created some panels of green shimmery card using Tim Holtz mica sprays in varying shades of green and one panel of orange. I let them dry overnight, as I had used Distress Mixed Media Heavystock, which would need a couple of passes through my machine – that card stock is indeed ‘heavy’.
I then die cut the wreath layers and stuck them together. Now – that sounds simple – but it took some figuring out – it’s a good job I was in a fiddly and fussy kinda mood! I then die cut the berries and used only two layers – my fiddly and fussy mood didn’t extend to the small, very small, outer berry circles!
I also used the remainder of the orange mica card to die cut the bow.
Once the wreath layers and berries were glued down, I turned to the background, and die cut this snowflake panel – again – for a white-on-white background. I thought this added interest without taking away from the wreath.
I then searched through my previously foiled Christmas sentiment stash and used the one you see.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
