crafty christmas countdown: day 23


Let's keep this crafty Christmas countdown going with some beautiful Anna Griffin projects using her new Christmas snowflake and holly dies.  These cutting and embossing dies turn out the most gorgeous images and projects.  Take a look:


For the above card I die cut holly images out of red Christmas Perfect Palette cardstock and Emerald Forest patterned paper, and then combined the die cut image and the negative image from opposite papers.


On the card below I left the paper in the die and colored through the holes in it before taking the paper out.  I love the look!


There are several ways to add berries to the holly dies--markers, glitter glue/stickles, mini punched circles. brads, buttons, gems, pearls, etc.



On the page above I used some red glitter glue to add berries to the holly die cuts.  I placed the four die cuts in a quad arrangement with a small hole in the center, and the photo covers it up.



I inked the snowflake die cut on the above card with gold metallic StazOn ink.




These die cut image are stunning--the designs are amazing, and the embossing adds so much detail and dimension.  Love them!!
