THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR COMMENTS!
One thing that's fun about designing for Sizzix is that you sometimes get a little surprise in your mail! A couple weeks ago I received a new die from the Sizzix Basic Grey collection. It was the Swirl and Snowflake die set from the Nordic collection. I love flourishes and this one is beautiful!
After mulling it over, I decided to create a card using both the new dies and adding one of my favorite elements - Pop 'n Cuts!
Karen Burniston came up with last month. My idea was to have a reindeer leap out from behind a tree. Amazingly, I figured out the mechanism with (almost) no problem and it worked!!
I'm not sure the snowflake was meant to work with the flourish, but I loved how they looked together! This is the first time I've used an Embosslit. It cuts and embosses your paper at the same time. I definitely need more of these! I covered both the flourish and snowflake with lots and lots of Rock Candy Dry Glitter. I wish the sparkle showed up better!
MidWinter rubber stamps from Artistic Outpost. I colored the scene with Distress Markers and added a healthy dose of glitter. The Sizzix Ornamental die paired with the Mini Ornamental die creates the perfect frame. I love my Ranger Distress Markers and they just happen to be the theme for this week's Compendium of Curiosities challenge over at Studio L3!
Then I thought I'd also do a little video! It's pretty boring...just me sitting at the kitchen table, opening and closing the card, lol! But it's so much fun to see it in motion!
