Hello crafty friends,
Mary back with three cards showcasing the Aspen & Pine Forest die by Impression Obsession and a couple of other dies.
Starting with this first card, on which I used the die to create a shaker element.
I added my "snow" mixture and die cut the "frame" to top my shaker from silver glitter paper... tip: to save glitter paper I fuzzy cut the center of the glitter paper since I didn't need it when die cutting the die this time. I only needed the border/frame. I fuzzy cut anything that wasn't the frame.
For card 3, I wanted to see if I could make the Aspen & Pine Forest die work on a slim card.
I started by die cutting the panel twice from green card stock. Using my card panel for size reference I looked for a place I could join the two die cuts without it looking weird and trimmed the excess off. I ended up getting rid of the bottom parts of the die realizing I should have used white card stock (snow).
I backed the die cuts with blue pattern paper and using a white gel pen painted some of the trees white. I inked the bottom of the "ground" with white distress ink. The "Winter Cheer" is from a Penny Black die set that unfortunately is not currently available, but the Joyful Winter set is. The cute house and sleigh is an unmounted stamp from Purple Onion Designs by Stacey Yacula.
Thanks for stopping by!
