Fancy Filigree Christmas

Dec 05, 2017 Tami Hartley

I love detailed dies, so when I saw the new Filigree Border Fancy Die (part of the December My Monthly Hero add-on collection), it was love at first sight. First, here's a look at the die itself and the cut-outs it produces. Delicate, ornamental, and so pretty!

While it complements the December kit and other add-ons beautifully, I thought it would make a lovely background for a Christmas card as well. Here's what I came up with...

Although the card looks detailed, the creation of it was quite simple:

1. Blend 2-3 ink colors on a panel of white cardstock. (I used Distress Inks and added a few water droplets to the inked panel, but you could use any inks here and omit the water.)
2. Adhere the two white Filigree Border Fancy Die pieces on top of the panel.
3. Cut a white Snowflake Tag Fancy Die.
4. Stamp and white heat emboss the message from the Holiday Badges set onto a gray cardstock circle. Adhere to the snowflake tag.
5. Add a gray cardstock strip and silver glitter paper strip to the card with foam tape. Top with snowflake.

 

That's all there is to it! The next time you're looking for an easy way to make a card look elegant, give this intricate die a try. It would make beautiful anniversary, wedding and birthday cards too.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day!
