Spellblogger giveaway - day three

 Continuing with my cards made with the Becca Feeken Braided Lace Square dies - not one, but two ideas for you today. Both Christmas cards (I am trying to get ahead this year, after the last minute frenzy of last year). Go HERE to enter the giveaway

In both instances, I made a shaped card. Easy to do if you shift the cutting edge of the die up by a fraction when passing through your machine, those top edges stay uncut and hold the card together. For this navy card, the card base was cut in navy, then a white layer added. A glittered snowflake from the gorgeous Create a Flake six die set, topped with a word from the Ho Ho Ho Die D-lites set


A different look for this next one - I didn't use a solid background, but cut the card into a lacy frame. More snowflakes from the above set, but this time, instead of glitter, I pressed them into a Versamark pad, and covered them with WOW platinum embossing powder - I love the fact that the embossing detail on the snowflakes is  so detailed, that it shows even when coated with three layers of embossing powder! The JOY word is also from the HoHoHo set..... 


This shot shows how the back of the card is lacy as well as the front, a really delicate and pretty effect.......


Here's the set one of you will win......



Back to the crafty desk now, to make another card to show you tomorrow......
