I decided I’d play along with the Simon Says ,,,,, DIES and/or PUNCHES where the challenge is to use dies or punches.
I made a Christmas card with this die from Simon and Says Stamp to create a winter scene.
The card panel was colored with various shades of blue Distress Inks. For a snowy effect I flicked onto the panel Picket Fence Distress Stain mixed with a little water. On 2 separate sheets of white CS, I colored each paper with different shades of green Distress Ink – one being lighter, the other sheet darker. I die cut 2 trees from each paper. I sprayed the lighter shaded green trees with Mister Huey’s Opaque White Mist. The darker colored trees were sprayed with Perfect Pearls Pearl Mist.
I then cut 2 trees from the blue colored card panel. I carefully pulled these trees off and set them aside for another use. I then added the lighter colored green trees into that negative space so it would be flush with the panel.
From another piece of white cardstock, I die cut the snow banks from this die set from PTI. I also added glitter on the edges and added the sentiment on the smaller snowbank. I adhered one of the darker colored trees onto the blue panel. I then added the larger snowbank. Next, I adhered the second darker colored tree onto this snowbank and added a star gem to its top. I then added the smaller snowbank with dimensional stickers to finish off the panel. Finally, the panel was adhered to a card base.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
