Today I'm sharing a card made with a couple of the dies that are in the Pick of the Day that Sue is doing on Create and Craft today.
I stamped the feather from the Creative Expressions Design Elements Stamp set randomly over a white piece of card using Pine Needles Distress Ink. I dried the ink with my heat gun and then popped the background through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Wild Poinsettia Embossing Folder. I put it through a second time to extend the pattern. I inked all over with Pine Needles Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam to make the embossed design 'pop'.
I cut the largest of the Spellbinders 2010 Holiday Tree die set out of green card. At the emboss stage I added the Small Polka Dots Mask. I put some Double Sided Self Adhesive Film onto another piece of green card and cut out the middle size of the 2010 Holiday Tree. I did not emboss. I removed the adhesive backing and added some Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels Iced Crystal. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Winter Greetings Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the smallest of the 2010 Holiday Tree dies. I inked through the die with Pine Needles using Cut n Dry Foam.
I cut 2 corners from the Spellbinders Holly Accents die set. I dyed some white Silky Crush Ribbon with Pine Needles Distress Ink. I spritzed it with water to make the ink spread and put it aside to dry (don't use a heat gun on it). Once dry I tied a bow and added one of the new Creative Expressions Dazzlers. I finished the card with some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White.
Sue has lots of shows on Ideal World and Create & Craft today. Hope you manage to catch some.
Thanks for stopping by.
