Christmas Cutting with Elizabeth

October 16, 2013

We have a special treat for you…our Christmas Cutting (die cutting that is) event! Over the next two weeks, visit our blog daily for holiday inspiration and ideas using our Creative Dies.  You can view and shop our complete collection of our Creative dies HERE.


Our Creative Dies can be used as elegant embellishments for your cards.  Look at this faux metal embellishment Elizabeth has created using 51-020 Fancy Flourish.


Here’s how she created this look:

First die cut Fancy Flourish from thin cardboard.  Pounce the die cut with VersaMark Watermark ink and then alternately sponge on Rich Gold and Bronze PanPastels.  Permanent Green Pan Pastel can be added as well for a verdigris patina.  Finally, spray with matte clear acrylic coating to seal the piece.

Just imagine the possibilities with this wonderful technique!

    I love the way you have used a background stamp to echo the flourishes & swirls of the die-cut & your placing of the die-cut just off the edge of that panel at each side is a super touch. It really draws the eye out & down to embrace the greeting. The little scored line is a lovely detail too.
