Christmas Mini Scene

Hi Bloggers.

Super quick blog post today as I'm running a workshop at Creative Expressions HQ today. I've been prepping for Phill's Craftathon on Sunday - ny the way he's told me he can squeeze in another couple of people so if you're not busy on Sunday and fancy joining us - give Phill a ring at Honeypot Crafts.
I'm heading up North again on Friday (leaving as early as I can) as I'll be demoing at Strikes in Carlisle on Saturday.

Anyway, back to today's card -

Really simple - I've cut all the layers in Sue Wilson's Christmas Scene Mini Background Die Set out of Cobalt Card. I've popped some Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet between each layer set and added Cosmic Shimmer Penny Copper Polished Silk Glitter.

I cut some of Sue's Winter Trees out of Cobalt Card and rubbed Cast Bronze Gilding Wax over them.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Hi Julia,
    Lovely card, I don't think the photos show the colours too well on my screen as the cobalt card looks more turquoise. I'm sure it looks beautiful in real life. Love the penny copper glitter. Hope you have a good day with the workshop.
    Thanks for sharing,
