Hi Everyone, I have thoroughly enjoyed using the Birch Press layering dies to make birthday cards etc. and am certainly not disappointed with their Christmas designs. Here I have used the Issa Snowflake die, as the Radiant Ornament die sold out before I had time to try it out, hopefully we will have more in stock before too long.
The beauty of these dies is that the designs are so detailed you need very little else to complete your card.
Here I have used a 12.5cm square white blank card and layered that with silver and dark blue card. I cut the three die layers in white, light blue and silver. The Issa die is quite clever as it automatically cuts the central snowflake in reverse order so the white layer was on the bottom for the outer circle but on top for the snowflake etc. which creates a really nice effect. Although each layer is cut with a single die, the layers split into three parts, I have only used two of the parts for this card, the outer ring and the snowflake, I have saved the other pieces to use on something else later.
I glued the three outer rings together, and adhered them to the centre of the card, then glued the three snowflakes together and adhered them in the centre of the die cut rings.
I used some of the cut out pieces to make the decorations at the corners of the card, and added a small self adhesive crystal to each one to match the crystal at the centre of the snowflake.
The Merry Christmas greeting is stamped in white on the same dark blue card as the background and adhered using adhesive foam pads across the lower portion of the snowflake.
Hope you like the card, thank you for visiting, all the products used are linked below.
