This card (previously posted) is one of the cards being featured over at Die Cut Divas this month where I was invited to be a guest designer. They have monthly challenges where all cards/projects must be made using at least one die cut or embossing folder. This month’s challenge is Your Favourite Holiday. (Click HERE to see all the challenge rules.)
The snowman on this card was made with the Sizzix Snowman & Hat Bigz die which also came with a bonus embossing folder that fits the die. The snowman was cut from Gina K Pure Ivory card stock, and the hat was cut from a scrap of textured black DCWV card stock. The arms were cut freehand from a scrap of black. Ribbon and gems were added to finish him off.
The background panel is Gina K Kraft card stock embossed with the Darice Snowflake Swirl folder. The frame was cut using my trimmer from a piece of Pebbles “Mary” card stock from the Walnut Grove collection. The Card base is Gina K Pure Ivory.
The greeting stamp is from the Gina K Designs “Winter Cheer” set and was stamped with versamark and heat embossed with gina k black embossing powder on kraft card stock and matted on pure ivory. A scrap of ribbon, jute and a glittered, wooden mini snowflake ornament from Michaels were added to the greeting banner.
This card was originally made for the Perfectly Rustics Challenge No. 36 – Embossing – where we were to use wet or dry embossing on our project. I used both. (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2014/11/17/prdc-36-embossing/)
Pop on over to Die Cut Divas and check out their current challenge – Your Favourite Holiday.
