Hi everyone, it's JULIE here today and I am sharing some Festive inspiration using the new Christmas Tree shaker die. I have made this card in mind that many of us like to make a lot of Christmas cards, so this is a design that won't take too long to make. My card measures 4 and a half inches square, this is smaller than my usual square cards I make.
My Christmas Tree was coloured with a mix of Distress Powder and a sparkly powder and filled with Metal Confetti, Micro Beads and Glass Glitter.
All my sparkly and snow layers were made by heat embossing with different colours of powder after die cutting them out. This takes a little longer to do but has the advantage of your glitter staying in place and not falling off.
In answer to your question Gail Lass, how do we manage not to have the glitter sticking to the acetate ? left in our comments on Blog Hop Day. I use Glass Glitter inside my shakers which is less static and our metal confetti doesn't hold a static charge. I also keep the protective paper over my acetate as I die cut it and only pull off as I am ready to glue in place. This way the acetate is not picking up static charge from your body. Hope this helps.
Thanks so much for all your wonderful comments on Blog Hop Day, I loved reading them all. It would be great to see you sharing your creativity with Cheery Lynn Dies in our Bi Weekly Challenge with a chance to win a $20 Shopping Spree.
