Paper Cuts Noel Rudolf in Black & White

Hi Bloggers.

Hope you managed to catch some of the Paper Cuts One Day Special shows and get some lovely goodies. I have a busy week ahead of me - planning for September's shows, I've 6 workshops to plan, I have 3 month's worth of accounts and VAT to do and I really must cut the lawn (dandelion patch!) and do some washing and housework. Goodness knows how I'm going to fit it all in as I have shows on 14th, 23rd and 24th September and Ally Pally too! Oh well! I can rest when I'm 6 foot under!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Black Card using the Creative Expressions Nordic Tiles Embossing Folder. I matted onto Coconut White Card and then another piece of Black Card. I cut one of the corner designs from the Paper Cuts Turtle Doves Die Set out of Coconut White Card 4 times and added them to the corners of my background using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator.

I cut the Paper Cuts Noel Rudolf out of Coconut White Card. I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Black Card and cut the plain circle die from the Turtle Doves Die Set. I removed the backing sheet and added Black Micro Beads. I cut the decorative circle die out of Coconut White Card. I added the 2 circle die cuts to my background using 1mm Woodware Foam Tape. I added CS Glue around the micro beaded die cut and around the edges of my background and then sprinkled CS Iced Snow over. I glued Rudolf on top.

Easy! Change the colour of card and micro beads for a different look. Add Glitterbitz or Gilding Flakes for a change.

Thanks for stopping by.
