Fire & Ice

Hi Bloggers.

A bit of Fire & Ice today -

I started by cutting the large decorative die from the Justrite A2 Butterfly Garden Dies into a piece of Black Card. I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet on the front. I turned it over to the back and added CS Harvest Moon Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I turned over to the front, removed the other backing sheet and added CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels. I then used the largest die from the set to trim the frame to size.

I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to ink up the image from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set. I stamped it onto Black Card leaving the stamp on the card no more than 3 seconds so as not to tear the card. I cleaned my stamp under a cold tap and then went back to my stamped image. I added CS Harvest Moon Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I cut it out using the largest circle die from the Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Black Circle Dazzlers and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.  

Thanks for stopping by.
