Welcome! If you've been visiting my blog for the past few days, you'll have seen the Watercooler Blog Hop and the projects I submitted. This week I'll be showcasing the items I made in more detail.
Today we'll look at this one:
I had been playing with my Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies but each card looked kinda the same. I made several cutting the Santa out in Whisper White, and then I tried one using Basic Black. That started my creative juices flowing.
So for this card, I cut my Santa with Whisper White, and then I cut scraps of Blushing Bride and Real Red for the face and hat. This took me two tries--hint--after cutting, lift the die with all the pieces intact and place it on your Die Brush pad (if you don't have one of these, you NEED one!) and vigorously brush over the die. Carefully lift the thinlit and leave the pieces of paper on your pad--these are what you need to fill in the blanks, and if you move them around too much, you won't know which ones go where. Ask me how I know...
Now for another tricky part--cutting just the right size opening in my Real Red base and my Basic Black layer.
After all that work I panicked when I thought about heat-embossing my sentiment from Greetings From Santa on the bottom of the black layer, but my Stamp-a-ma-Jig made it easy! Whew!
This is not a card to mass produce, but it sure is a special one for a special boy or girl!
