14 Days of Holidays - Day 6! December 08, 2015 07:00 4 Comments

Welcome to Day 6 of our 14 Days of Holidays cut file giveaways! Each weekday from December 1-18, 2015 we will be giving away a FREE cut file for that day only!

It's Jaclyn joining you on the blog today to show your how I've used the snowflake background design, to create not one but two festive holiday cards.

I sized the file to about 6.5" by 7.5".  Doing so allowed me to cut a piece that was big enough to use for both of my card designs, with only one pass of the diecutting machine.

 

For this first card, I layered a portion of the background onto a piece of patterned paper that was trimmed to fit my card front.  I trimmed off the excess portion of the diecut design and set it aside for my next card.

 

I used Versamark ink and glitter embossing powder to add a whole lot of sparkle to my diecut design.  Not only does it allow the snowflakes to stand out against the patterned background, but it's just plain pretty!  Adorning the centers of several of the snowflakes with gems and rhinestones is a fun finishing touch.

 

As noted, my next card design utilizes the leftovers from the first card - a great way to stretch your diecuts and save on time!  I simply trimmed out two of the remaining snowflake designs, layered them onto one another, and stitched on a pretty coordinated button. 

 

This dimensional, layered snowflake makes for a perfect centerpiece to the design.
