Our "It's All About The Dies Blog Hop" Day 3 Winner
Party Time Challenge

Tuesday T&T Embossing With Dies

Blame it on Dina Kowal.  When I saw what she did with the Leaves Die on her card for the DT "It's All About the Dies" Blog Hop, I tried it a little bit differently with the Snowflakes Die.  Here is what I did to make the card above.

Main Image:

  1. Die cut the Twig Wreath on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock.
  2. Turned the die cut over and sealed the center portion back with glossy accents and my needle nose applicator bottle shown under supplies.  If you have questions, please ask.
  3. Stamped Blessed Christmas with French Blue Fluid Chalk ink in the center.
  4. Threaded Hobby Lobby ribbon through the wreath, tied in a half knot, and used a Bow-Easy Bow mounted with a glue dot.

Background Cardfront & Folded card:

  1. Cut a white piece of cardstock to 5.0"X5.0".
  2. Used the 3 Snowflakes Die randomly with the emboss sandwich until the 5"X5" piece was cover with embossed snowflakes as shown.  I placed them together just touching for each time I put them through. (Put it through 3 times).
  3. Used foam brayer with French Blue Fluid Chalk ink over the embossed snowflakes.  Ink brayer lightly and roll over snowflakes lightly to get the feel of it.  It's easier to add than take off.  You want the embossed white areas to show.  I had not used Chalk ink for other than stamping.  This really felt like soft suede to me when dry.  :-)
  4. Added Viva Decor Ice White Peal Pen to dots here and there.
  5. Mounted to 5.25"X5.25 piece of white cardstock.
  6. Added pearl 1" boutonniere pin with pearl glass heart to bow.

Edge On Folded Card:

  1. Folded a white pieced of cardstock 5.5"X11" in half for card.
  2. Line cardfront up with left-hand (top) fold.
  3. Line up die from Border Duo 2 with bottom edge of cardfront.
  4. Tape in place with removable scotch tape.
  5. Remove cardfront and run folded card through your die machine.  (Cut top and bottom).

Envy And Inside Card (Top):

  1. Use one of your snowflake dies and emboss the top portion of the inside and then sponge over it lightly.
  2. Then mount your cardfront as shown.
  3. Use one of the snowflakes on a corner of the envelope and then sponge over it.
