Hello everyone! It's Heidi here! Today I am excited to be sharing one of the beautiful new Christmas die templates S6-015 Snowflakes View with you.
This is a wonderful die set with a decorative snowflake edge. I created two projects using the S6-015 Snowflakes View dies. In this post I've included a tutorial for the first project.
S6-015 Snowflakes View
S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A Card Creator
S4-404 Create-a-Flake Five
GC-001 Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
Cross Promotional Partners:
JustRite® Papercraft CR-02062 Signs of Christmas Clear Stamps
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Squares, E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49’
Metallic Pearl, White Cardstock
Silver Metallic Ink and Embossing Powder, Heat Tool
Copic Marker B00 Frost Blue, airbrush system
Butterbeescraps AB Crystals
To create the frame, nest Snowflakes View die #2 and #3 (the smallest die is #1) face down on to a piece of metallic pearl cardstock and secure with tape. Cut/emboss using the Grand Calibur Machine.
Here is a look at the beautiful die cut frame. Add 3D Foam Squares to the backside of the frame. Put the other die cut aside and save for the second project.
Using Snowflakes View die #1, cut/emboss with a piece of metallic pearl cardstock to create another decorative shape. Stamp a sentiment from the Signs of Christmas Clear Stamps with silver metallic ink. Then added silver embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
Using S4-404 Create-a-Flake Five and metallic pearl cardstock cut/emboss the snowflakes. Next airbrush the die cuts using Copic marker B00 Frost Blue.
Layer the snowflakes using 3D Foam Squares and then add crystals.
To create a large top fold card cut/emboss S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A die #7. Cut another piece of cardstock that is the same size but add a ½" to the length. Score at the ½" on the second piece of cardstock.
Add adhesive to the ½" strip that is scored. Place the 5 x 7 Matting Basics A die cut on top and adhere to the scored piece of paper. Doing this allows you to create a larger top fold card.
Once all die cuts are assembled as shown, this card is ready to be displayed!
For my second project I altered and dressed up a plain white gift bag to match the card.
Using the same supplies listed above for the card, I just add some silver metallic string to hold the little card in place at the top of the gift bag. Do you remember the die cut that was created when the frame was done and I said to set it aside? I used that die cut as a center piece of the gift bag and added a layered snowflake.
To create the card I cut/embossed using S6-015 Snowflakes View die #1. Then score and fold down the center. Add a small layered snowflake. Punch a hole in the top, add the silver metallic string and tie on to the gift bag.
Thank you for joining me today! I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and projects as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Hugs & Smiles,
