Jenny Gropp - You are here!
It's an odd card that I only use dies... no Copics, no stamping... but that's how it evolved! I'm all over the new dies and coming soon we'll be tempting you with a blog hop showing all the new dies off! I used the Snowflake Background Die and did some creative cutting to use a portion along the bottom. The Peace Die is also from the newest release.
On the inside liner, I used the Snowflake Cut Out Dies, which leave a beautiful peek-a-boo snowflake shape! I LOVE these!!!
After cutting out my elements I adhered them to the wintergreen paper. I then ran it thru an embossing folder... quilting all the elements together. The embossing was very deep and I wanted it a little softer so it didn't compete with the beautiful snowflakes. I used a folded piece of paper and put my embossed panel in that and ran it thru my machine, which slightly flattened out the embossing, leaving a subtle texture. Finished card is 4 7/8" square. I embellished with three little sequins only. NO BOW... shocker.
