Sizzix - From Our Home

Evening Bloggers :)
I bought this die on a whim recently and so glad I did, as I love the result!
It's so easy to achieve a card, it feels like I'm cheating, but why should a card take a whole day???
What attracted me to the die was that I figured, if I was to trim away the tree and the Christmas greeting I could maybe use it to create a New Home card too!!! I may experiment with this :)

Using a cheap old fashioned shaving brush from Wilkos, the backdrop is brushed on kinda randomly.
Then Frantage is applied to create the snow flakes.


SIZZIX thinlets die 659914
300 gsm white smooth cardstock from Anna Marie design
Rangers distress ink
For the snowflakes I used Stampendous (Frantage) chunky white embossing enamel

Thanks so much for the visit - it's now time I went to bed zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Love Diane x



Hi Diane - this die is awesome and I'm not surprised you are glad you bought it!
Love the card - your "kinda random" colouring is fabulous, and what a great idea for using the die as a New Home card too!

Wow what a smashing card Di! It WOULD be able to serve different purposes too. Love the colours of the 'sky' and the Frantage 'snow'! xxx
