I have been playing with 2 new dies, well just once actually.
The Noel die by Memory Box, I won.
The Sparkle Burst Stars by Poppy Stamps I bought.
Shimmer paper - Craft Creations but bought from Sam. Taylors. I am loving this shimmer paper, far cheaper than glitter paper and with such a shine. No I am not on commission.
Originally I did the Noel in the same colour as the Stars shimmer paper but was not sure so then I decided to use the two other colours that I had and I think it works better.
Now I know that some people tend to zoom in to look at a card so I have to explain a couple of things.
I have used the starburst die twice and it does tend to stretch the card and I may have to think about ironing it (yuk) to flatten it out more, even though I have spotted glue on the back.
The original Noel letters were not put on dead straight, must have had one glass of wine too many and the other coloured lettering were placed on top.
Oh yes and I have also added some of the circle off cuts to fill up the card.
Not a great photo the backing shimmer paper looks uneven. BUT it is NOT
It is different and to be honest I do like it, when I get round to doing it properly.
Thanks for looking and I value your opinion.
