This is the fifth weekend, so that means a wild card week over at Just Us Girls. Today Nancy is challenging us to create a one layer card with a winter theme. What a great challenge! You have no where to hide with a one layer card!
I had fun with this and used a technique I saw awhile back on Jennifer Maguire's blog. She showed a way to use your dies to emboss with. I grabbed the Frostyville border die from Memory Box.
Let me show you how I made this card. I have a Big Shot so I will be showing the technique using it
I opened my platform to page one and put one plate down. I put down the soft mat, then my card base, the die, second plate and a metal shim.
I ran this through my machine.
The image will be embossed but not cut through because of the soft mat under the card.
I sponged blue ink over the embossing to make it stand out and added stickles to make it glittery and added a sentiment. Quick and easy and ohhhh so pretty!
Please head over to JUGS and see what the other design team made and be inspired to join us in this one layer wild card challenge.
