Entwined die collection

Good evening crafters.

My poor blog. I've been so busy I've neglected it completely!!

Well, I'm going to try and get some posts done regularly - let's see how I get on.

Today I wanted to share a quick card using my brand new entwined Christmas die collection. The dies I have used for this card are the Christmas tree base die and the frost die.

This is the card I have made:

I started by using my snowflake stamps and a versamark pad to create a stamped background. I then edged my card with cosmic shimmer glue and white embossing powder. When you melt the powder you get a lovely bumpy texture

I created a green background with distress ink, and then used the base Christmas die to cut a tree. Use white card to cut the base tree again, and then glue the White tree over the top of the green, leaving a little border to create a drop shadow effect 

I then cut the frost out of blue card which I covered with versamark ink and embossed using kalidescope embossing powder

Now, entwine the layers together. This is so easy. Simply lie the base on top of the frost die cut, and bring some of the swirls round to the front. I use 200gsm + card, which is substantial enough to entwine without ripping 

Now mat and layer your base card

And finally use my stamps to create your sentiment, and use 3D gel to attach it to your card
