This first card is my second take on The Card Concept #23 Krafty Christmas challenge and in the Clean & Layering category again (I think).
I had made this layered snowflake wreath from a Memory Box die a little while ago and never used it as originally planned.
To keep the design simple, an open frame is made with two square dies nested together and a matching enamel dot is place in the middle of the snowflakes. This is another sentiment from the Technique Tuesday Jingle All The Way stamp set that I've used a few times this week.
A close up lets you see the twinkle from a Wink of Stella brushed over both the vellum and cardstock die cuts.
This second card is based on CAS(E) this Sketch #100. Yes, 100!!! There is even more inspiration this week, as past Design Team members have joined the current Design Team to provide some extra amazing cards.
I really wanted to help celebrate the milestone and play along this week but, even with all the great DT inspiration, was having a really hard time translating this sketch into a unique design. Is wasn't until I saw the CASology Week 22 cue card: Flag that an idea came together for me.
I added a piece of patterned paper to the card base, carefully cutting it to center the "don't peek until Dec 24th" phrase, and then cut a vellum flag and white cardstock flag to layer over it. These layers are only adhered together at the top, allowing a bit of swing and movement between the layers.
Part of the sentiment is stamped on the white panel before it is embossed for added texture. The second sentiment is stamped and heat embossed in silver on the vellum.
A thin line of Diamond Stickles adds a frosty finish to the card.
Thanks for stopping by,
