Tattered Layered Snowflake

I have a card over on the Country View Crafts Project Blog today and have used the gorgeous new Layered Snowflake by Tim Holtz. It has been embossed, dipped in picket fence distress paint with glitter added to alter it and I love the kraft, red and white colour combination.

It would be lovely if you could pop over to take a look and see the details of how I made it.

Thanks for stopping by here. Have a very happy Sunday.

HI everyone I hope you are having a happy Sunday. I am joining you today with a Christmas card that you could put together very easily but has a great deal of vintage charm.

I began by die-cutting Tim’s new layered snowflake die with embossing folder. It is fabulous for creating that wonderful texture on it.
I splodged it randomly with some picket fence distress paint.

When it was dry I smeared some glue with my finger over the painted area and covered it with platinum glitter.

The new Holiday Words thinlits give you fabulous greetings to add to your cards quite quickly and teamed with the ‘Stick It’ sheets work beautifully without any fuss in trying to adhere them to your design.

The instructions on the packet are very clear. I cut a piece to the size I needed for my dies, removed one side of the protective paper and rubbed it onto the reverse side of the card I wanted to use.
P1050844
With my very thin dies I always use the sizzix magnetic platform as this keeps the dies in the place you want them to be and they don’t slide around. At this stage you die-cut in the normal way and have the Stick It paper underneath and not showing.

It looked like this when I took the dies off the card.
P1050898
I gathered all the pieces I wanted to use in my design including papers from the Merriment set and making a shabby rose Jennie Atkinson style

I painted an edge around my card ….

… and assembled the card.

I'm not much of a X-mas crafter or -stamper, but this really makes me want to give it a try too ;)
