Hi everyone. A few days ago, hubby took me to Scrapbook Warehouse in Vancouver. This was my first time there and I had fun looking around. They have lots of papers, dies, and lots of beautiful cards made and displayed. When I picked out this die, I was shown two sample cards made using the same die - so great to be able to see an example of what the die-cut will look like before buying!
Lovely women working there that were so helpful ... already looking forward to going back!
Hubby picked up my Christmas present ... but I'll have to wait until after Christmas to tell you what it is! :)
I had also seen a card made by my friend Pam Sparks on her blog using this die. She layered different colors and I thought it was so beautiful and wanted to give it a try. After watching her video instructions, I started cutting. In the end, I used a different system, but the results are fairly similar.
I kept the card very CAS so that the beauty of the die was the star ... just a simple sentiment was added.
This card is for a very special person. Some of you may remember that my DSIL Moe, passed away earlier this year. Moe was originally from Ireland and had many sisters and a brother ... she was especially close to her sister Anne who lives in England. I know Christmas this year will be very difficult for Anne, so I am sending her this card along with my love and support.
Stamps: Signature Christmas Sentiments (Pink Petticoat)
Paper: White, Silver, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight (SU!)
Accessories & Tools: Big Shot, Glowing Candles die (Memory Box), red half pearls, glue, adhesives and dimensionals
I think I'll have fun trying out different combinations of colors and patterned papers with the gorgeous die!
I'm entering this card into four challenges:
- SCS Free For All Challenge (F4A198 - Holly Greeting - use holly or greenery on your card)
- ATS&M #74 - CAS
- Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge (154 - make a card for someone special)
- Less Is More (LIM#149 - Metallic element plus one color). I have two metallic elements (the silver outline and the red pearls with the plus one color being pear). Hope that's OK! :)
ETA: will also be entering this for CAS on Sunday (#23 - Christmas).
