Wish I could have titled that “Snowflake dies – Three Ways”, but I didn’t have time to make on more. Maybe you can check a previously made card, using the same dies here? But, here’s the second of the two ways –
I made an embossing template out of the dies and used it on my card! That’s one great substitute for embossing folder, and I love the effects it can create!
For this card, I used the same set of dies as I used previously, Simon Says Stamp More Fun Flakes, to cut out several pieces. I then adhered two of each together, to get some dimension, then adhered them on a piece of acetate I saved from packaging. I then used this as an embossing template, to get the snowflakes impressed on a watercolor panel.
I then used distress ink smooshing to gather color on the watercolor panel, then misted some water in so that it spreads. I then left it to dry, and used this panel as the background for my card.
For the rest of the card, I used Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles to cut out the frame, sentiment from Paper Trey Ink ‘Tis the Season for the sentiment, and a few more snowflakes from the same die set, one colored using distress inks, one left plain. I also added Nuvo glitter drops for embellishing.
