is the first time I’ve said this but please don’t try this at home! LOL!
“This” is referring to using the snowflake border die from the Swirly
Snowflakes Thinlits Dies with the Sizzix Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets!
It worked brilliantly with the actual die cutting, but boy oh boy, what a mess!
Next time I use this
fabulous die, I’ll use good old Tombow to adhere it on my cardstock!
The tiny bits became stuck to my
tweezers, my paper piercer, my sweater, and my hands.
It took ages to
remove them all, but once it was done, it was so easy to adhere the die
cut to my Fresh Fig Cardstock (CS)!
Then I removed the die and placed it on the opposite side, and cranked it through the Big Shot again.
I removed the die again, easily, but then I had to remove most of the little pieces manually, and it was this bit that took forever!
I took another piece of Whisper White CS and repeated the process, but without using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets!
started my card with a base of Whisper White CS and then a layer of
Fresh Fig CS.
Once I’d removed all the bits from my die cut, it was so
easy to adhere it to the Fresh Fig layer.
I took two more pieces of Whisper
White CS and wiped over them both with my Embossing Buddy.
The stamp set
I had chosen to use for my card is called Night In Bethlehem, and
I selected the Mary and Joseph stamp as well as the Rejoice sentiment.
I knew I was going to die cut the sentiment using one of the oval
dies from the Stitched Shape Framelits dies, but I really couldn’t
decide whether to use the square or circle die for the image – the
I used dimensionals
to adhere them to my card.
the inside of my card I took a layer of Whisper White CS and wiped over
it with my Embossing Buddy.
I chose the
shepherd with his sheep stamp from the Night In
Bethlehem Stamp Set for the inside of my card.
inked the stamp in Versamark, and then in Fresh Fig Ink, and stamped the
image in the bottom right hand corner.
adhered this layer onto a layer of Fresh Fig and then adhered it inside
afternoon I’m finally off to see my GP for the results of the Xray of
my cracked ribs! I could have seen a different doctor a lot sooner, but I
was happy to wait to see mine!
That’s it for today! Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
