Today I am up on the Birch Press Design Blog making another project using the ISSA Snowflake, but this time only Layer A! I had to make an ornament as my focal point on my card.
What I love about these dies is you can either use all to layer your image or you can chose just one layer to create your card. What is even better with this set is there are multiple areas within this die design to chose from to show on your design!
During the Holiday season I always chose strong bold colors for my card making. This time is no different! Gold mirror, Silver mirror and Black, I think that is pretty bold, right? But you can choose any colors that will fit your look!
I die cut my pieces, one in the gold and another in the silver, but I also cut the center portion one more time. This way the center of my ornament would have more dimension and set higher than the rest! Once all my pieces were die cut, I glued them all together using my liquid adhesive. I set it aside so it can dry, placing acrylic blocks on top for added weight!
Once all set, I placed it onto my card base using double sided foam tape, because we can never have too much dimension!
My sentiment, Merry Christmas, is from the ‘Joy & Peace Clear Stamp Set. I used gold embossing powder and heat set just above the ornament directly onto my standard A2 size card base (4 1/4 inches x 5 1/2 inches).
I grabbed my black embossing pen and drew a string with a bow for my hanging ornament and heat set it with clear embossing powder!
