A Greeting For Christmas

lördag 23 maj 2015

Hello happy Christmas crafters!
Or all of you crafters who are not doing Christmas cards this time of year, which might seem a little strange, I hope you are happy too. I have been inspired by Betty Wright's card for todays project, and I decided play around with the Pinecone Frame die from Memory Box.

I used it both as a stencil and the die cuts. But first I inked an embossed oval in red using the Snowfall stencil from Hot Off The Press. I cut out a couple of cones that I first dyed and then added a layer embossing paste, then I sprinkled over glitter and warmed up. I like the puffed effect it gets when embossing paste is heated.  I decided to add a K-design sentiment and heat emboss it too. The branche was made with
Tim´s Alterations Holiday Greens die.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!
Hugs, Birgit
