Good Afternoon, Well its Friday already. Where has the week gone? Where has the year gone, already into the 2nd week of October. If you haven't already started thinking about Christmas then you should probably start, i have? but i love Christmas so i start thinking about it about May haha.
Its been a brill week for me, if you follow me on facebook you will see that i have booked to go to New York. i have wanted to visit New York for near 20 years so this a dream come true. Myself and my mum will be there June next year. What makes it even more special is the i will be there for my 30th birthday. that will be a birthday i will never ever forget for sure.
Until then, i have Christmas to get sorted. i have made this very simple card by taken 4 of Stix2 snowflakes and actually placed them under centura pearl card stock and ran it through my Ebosser. by doing this, the snowflake design actually embosses the card stock and the snowflakes are still in perfect tacked to use else where. The products i have used and the steps are as followed;
Die Cut snowflake - S57277.
Blue tape runner - S56986.
Craft sheet - S57132.
Layer perfect Metric - S57321.
Silicone glue - S57100.
low tack stencil tape - S56994.
Die cut release sheet - S57316.

1- Take your Centura pearl card stock and turn it over. Place 4 of your snowflakes and position them either randomly or in a specific area on the back and tape it down with your stencil tape and run it through your embossing machine.
2- Mat and layer on to your Wine card stock and again onto your silver mirri card.
3- Using your Stencil tape and die cut release sheets, tape your die down on your wine card stock and again, run it through your embossing machine.
4- Again, randomly (or specifically) place your diecut snowflake down using your silicone glue, placing a gem in the centre.
5- Add your chosen sentiment and place your "Handmade by" label on the back and pop it into your Cello bag.
