Hello crafters, Aida here today. Christmas is nearing and I hope you'll soon cross out "gift buying" from your list. I have a Sizzix Inspiration card and perhaps this will inspire you to make a few to mail off to friends or attach to the gifts.
The Retro Packages Sizzix Bigz is such a fun die to use and for this card I've layered the die cuts to give them dimension.
Here you can see how I added the bow on top of the main die cut. What I did was to die cut the same shape in a contrasting paper and trimmed off the boxes leaving only the bow and a small strip of paper. Add foam dots behind and adhere to the boxes, finally decorate with a pretty brad or crystal, so easy !
I love this Brenda Walton Petite Floral Sizzix Textured Impressions embossing folder as it's pretty with small florals that will not clutter the card. White card stock was used to emboss the design and after that I added colour using Distress Ink in Crushed Olive, Mustard Seed and Gathered Twigs.
To finish the card, add a little strip of patterned paper at the lower half of the card, then a message and you are done.
Thank you for dropping by, have a great weekend !
