Good morning Campers, Hi De Hi !!! Hope you are all well.
The website is keeping me busy and I've had 2 hospital appointments this week already so apologies if I have slipped with my blog visits again, I will try and catch up over the next couple of days.
Welcome to Lorraine, and thank you for clicking "follow".
Now, I finally managed to get a play with John's new Snowflake Circle embossing folder.........its been frustrating being surrounded by all of these super crafty goodies but not having the time to play.
I have done a little "How I did this" pictorial after the ingredients. Sorry if its the Granny sucking eggs scenario.
White, aqua, silver and blue mirror card
John Next Door Snowflake Circle embossing folder
Crafts Too Snowflake die
Smallest die from a set available on my website
Presscut Circle die
CE Polished Silk Glitter
Teeny blue bling
Double sided adhesive sheet
These three items are currently available on my website.....click on the link on the sidebar to have a look.
I wanted to cut out the circle before embossing as I didn't want to then flatten the embossing by putting it through the GC...............how to get the circle in the right spot???
I placed some low tack tape onto the die on the non cutting side and placed this on the embossing folder over the centre circle, tape side up.
I then popped by card blank on top and pressed down to pick up the die.
This sites the die in the precise spot to cut out the circle.
I was going to use the silver snowflake I cut out in the aperture but the waste looked very interesting so I placed it behind the aperture, and held it with low tack tape from the front. I then stuck double sided adhesive to a sheet of card, cut to the size of my card and stuck this to the back of the aperture, on top of the silver piece. This held the silver piece in place.
I then cut another snowflake from aqua card and stuck it in the aperture. I then filled the gaps with the polished silk glitter.
Small snowflake and silver gem added to the top and job done!!!
There's another card for the Christmas box, although its still looking pretty meagre lol!!!
Thanks for stopping by and glad to hear that folks have been satisfied with their deliveries so far.
Some new stock will be added in the next couple of days.
See you soon.
