Time to start with some Christmas cards! I send different cards to everyone at Christmas, never having been very good at making many of the same. I used dies from the brand new Karen Burniston's Sizzix Hearth & Home collection on this card. You can see the whole Hearth & Home collection here, it is fabulous, so versatile, and certainly not only for Christmas projects.
I decided to do a card using only white cardstock, texture and just a little bit of colour. Sorry, the colours are a bit off in the photo, I didn't have great light for an all white card when I took it.
I used the great Bracket Frame & Label Bigz die on the front and cut it from Specialty Stamping cardstock. This is such a great die, you get the centre label and the two frames, all of which work well both together and on their own. I decided to use all three here.
The two frames were embossed with a heart and a dot folder and the smaller frame was mounted with foam dots. I love the feel of Specialty Stamping paper. I also die cut three little snowflakes, using the Snowflakes Framelits set.
The bird was stamped with Archival Jet Black ink and coloured with Distress Ink (Barn Door and Tumbled Glass) and a craft nib.
Raising 3D Platform die. Such a fun die! When you open the card it literary raises up to meet you. Perfect for sentiments, but for tons of other things too. Here I used it for the sentiment, and stamped the sentiment inside the Fancy Frame Bigz die. The two fancy dies fit perfectly on top of the platform.
The insert in the Raising 3D Platform die explains how to fold and assemble die pop-up, it is much easier than what it looks.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
