Here's today's card -
Phill Martin's Frosty Christmas Holly Paper Pad. To recap how to do this - I cut a few strips, each 1" wide. then then glued 2 strips of each pattern
to a piece of copy paper, alternating the designs. I then cut this down
into 1" strips so that each strips was made up of 1" squares of the
patterned paper. I then glued these strips onto another piece of copy
paper, stepping down each time to offset the patterns. I ran this
through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Swrling Holly Embossing Folder and rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax over the surface.
I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti Static Bag and placed it onto the tan mat of my Grand Calibur which was on top of the Pink Embossing Plate. I then inked up the large deboss die from Sue Wilson's Lavish Accented Design Noble Die Set with Clear Perfect Medium and popped it face down onto the dusted card. I added the Base Plate and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the deboss pattern - by the way if you ink up using a Brayer instead of using the pad directly , your pattern will be more clearly defined than mine. I added Phill's CS Decadent Denim Embossing Powder and heat set. I cut the frame out using the plain dies either side if the deboss die.
I stamped the Shooting Stars Medallion Stamps to Die For onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Decadent Denim Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the largest die in Sue's Deboss Snowflake Die Set.
I made a flower out of more scraps of paper using 3 sizes of dies from Sue's Classic Poinsettia Die Set and out of Coconut White using the corresponding dies from Sue's Classic Poinsettia - Open Petals Die Set and added a 5mm White Pearl to the centre. I cut a couple of sprays out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Star Spray Die Set.
I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
