supplies: gold and a tiny bit of red glitter cardstock, Doodlebug Christmas dps, Spellbinders Joy die
First, I simply cut the design from gold glitter cardstock, then looked around for something to back it with. I liked the text background from this grouping of Doodlebug papers that I think came in a past Card Kit from Simon. Then I added some green with another unknown snowflake dp. To finish I added just one of the flowers in the center of the "o". Simple to make; the intricacy of the die does all the work!
Since the die is long and narrow, I followed suit with the size of my card.....this one is about 3 3/8" X 5 1/2".
Next I used all the tiny dies included in this set to paper-piece it.
supplies: kraft, Lipstick Red, Schoolhouse Red, Green Apple, Green Leaf , Gumdrop Green, and gold glitter card, Joy die
I started with a medium green to cut out the die, then added 2 other greens, lighter and darker, for the holly leaves and pine sprigs, and also paper-pieced in the flowers and berries in 2 shades of red. I used the leftovers from above to fill in my letters, then glued everything onto a kraft base, framed in red. This one measures 3 1/4" X 5 1/2".
It really didn't take that long to cut the extra pieces and add them to the design, probably because this die is not a huge one. Just right, in my opinion!
It's great to be getting a start on my Christmas cards!
