I hadn’t had a chance to use Christmas Tree Window Die-namics yet so I thought I’d make up for that omission by bringing you TWO cards using it. First up, a very dainty and elegant design that I wish you could see IRL. I tried and tried but could NOT capture it in a photo—I’m thinking because of all the shine and sparkle. To begin, I sponged some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Blue Breeze Premium Dye Ink and heat embossed the sentiment from Hand-Lettered Holiday Stamp Set with silver detail embossing powder. Next I splattered this panel with gold and silver acrylic paint, slightly watered down, matted it with Silver Sparkle card stock after it dried.
I cut Christmas Tree Window Die-namics from Gold Shine card stock and trimmed around it so it could stand alone. It was decorated with Silver Sparkle card stock and popped up on foam tape on the card front. To finish, I popped it up on the card base to which I’d adhered some Gold Sparkle card stock.
The second card is a little more rustic in design.
I stamped some Kraft card stock with Versamark and a sentiment from Hand-Lettered Holiday Greetings Stamp Set then cut Christmas Tree Window Die-namics and created a shaker element. I backed it with an alcohol ink piece I’d created some time ago for kicks but which came in handy for this tree. It was filled with Silver and Gold Sparkle Seed Beads and I added Gold Sparkle card stock trimmings to the tree along with some Wild Cherry card stock “ornaments”.
I popped the card front up on foam tape and added the sentiment, from SY Sweet Holiday Penguins Stamp Set, heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder, on Jellybean Green Card Stock cut with Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics. It was popped up on foam and I finished off with some enamel dots.
And that’s it! I hope I’ve given you some ideas for using YOUR new December goodies in some fun ways. Thanks so much for stopping by…and happy shopping!! Don’t forget that MFT will be giving away TWO $100 vouchers—to have a chance to win one, be sure to comment on each of the designers’ blogs by end of the day on Thursday, December 13th.
