Looking through the window

As promised another card using the Presscuts book die, this time as an accent only rather than the main card. I have cut the smallest two dies out and then, for a thinner border, I have drawn around the larger of the two dies used and cut out by hand. Its a simple line to follow so not too difficult to do. The smallest shape was then run through an old embossing folder I own with music on which I felt lent perfectly to the theme.

I used Steel and Icicle Pearl Foundation card stock, oh, what a super quality card, such a sheen to it too. Peeping from the background you will see my 'windows', made from the Lattice window die and cut from the Steel card in the front and backed with the Icicle card.
 Finally the flower. I really enjoy making flowers from paper/card, it might be sad but I find it quite therapeutic. I used the Steel card again and cut two large, one medium and one small flower from the Orange Blossom Complete Petal die set, layered them up and then applied Cosmic Shimmer glue all over each petal, then covered in Iced Snow. Once it dries, the glue is completely clear and sooo sparkly. I cut the Orange Blossom leaves die from Icicle card not forgetting to emboss it as well getting the full effect from your die. Not every die needs or benefits from running through the embossing mat as well as cutting, but with the leaves it really is a must.

  1. Wow this is stunning! I love it! I am gonna have to get me a set of those book dies eventually.

  2. This is just a pretty. I love how you have used to embossing folder to make it look like a song book. I can just imagine it incorporated into a Christmas card. Well done.
