Christmas Card Club - Mono Colours
Which brings me to the cards made instead. This week it's Kates choice of theme, and she picked Mono colours.
So we have a totally white version, and a dark blue and white one too.
The die used here is called Village Frame Square, and seems to be branded Amy Designs. Must be right, as a Google search found them at The Art of Craft.
I cut it from White Pearl cardstock, and gave it a spritz with some Crafters Companion Spray & Sparkle, in Iridescent Glitter. Next time I cut this, I'll add some Double sided adhesive sheet to the cardstock first, as adding glue to all the tiny bits of the design was slow going.
I cut another square of white pearl cardstock and embossed that with a folder called 'It's Snowing', by Leonie Purjol. I'm guessing it's discontinued, as I can't find anywhere with it in stock. I matted the Village scene on top of that, and then both pieces onto a 6" card base.
The greeting is by Presscut, again, next time I'll add DST to the cardstock first. I used a white glitter card, as using the same pearl cardstock left it fading into the background.
Made exactly the same, this time with a dark blue Metallic cardstock background. I have an old stamp that's just lots of tiny dots, so I stamped that all over the square, then heat embossed with Stardust Embossing Powder. Same greeting, this time cut from more white pearl cardstock.
Just for info purposes, these are the snowflakes!
Funny thing is, mainly the worst ones to cut were from expensive dies. Some cheap ones I picked up from The Works, £4 for 4 dies, cut like a dream.They are quite intricate too. A Sue Wilson Snowflakes die, which is very pretty, very intricate, and not cheap, was a nightmare!
