Gilded Paper Cuts Jingle Bells

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by popping a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I cut the plain circle die from the Paper Cuts Jingle Bells Die Set from it. I trimmed just a little from the outside edge. I cut the Jingle Bells die and the plain circle die together out of Graphite Pearl Card. I removed the backing sheet from the circle die cut and added my Jingle Bells die cut. I added CS Egyptian Gold Gilding Flakes to the exposed adhesive, removing the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I cut the decorative circle die from the Paper Cuts Turtle Doves Die Set out of Graphite Pearl Card.

For my background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Ice Crystals Embossing Folder. I matted onto Graphite Pearl Card and then another piece of Coconut White Card.

I cut one of the corners from the Paper Cuts Tutle Doves Die Set out of Graphite Pearl Card 4 times and added them to the corners of my background.

I finished my card by adding CS Gold Twinkles around the edges, to the centre of the bow corners and to the holly in the Jingle Bells centre.

  8. I loved this card when it was on Hochanda - made me buy the die! Great tip about cutting the adhesive sheet just a bit smaller than the die so you don't get too many gilding flakes on the edge. Thank you.

  9. Hi Julia
    A beautiful card. As Jan says, great tip about trimming a bit from the die cut for the backing.
