This release is amazing! I have made so many cards with it using multiple die sets in each card. Even better, I made them quickly! You can find the full release here. If you get lost on the hop - I always do - go to the blog. You probably found your way from Lynda Pleckan beautiful blog - love her cards.
So for the first card, I just had to use Typewriter Sentiments to form the background. Lots of great sentiments here for many uses! I left the words still attached with the wires and die cut them several times using Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock. I have a video below that shows my process.
I glued each word down in a pattern that looked good using Gina K. Designs Connect Glue. You can make this kind of background with any word dies or use a dry embossing folder. I think using the dies gives a more dimensional effect. I die cut the stocking parts from patterned paper and plain card stock. I used the Snowman Accessories set to die cut the coffee travel mug and mittens - perfect stocking gifts right? I then stuffed my stocking which is popped up with some 3M Foam tape.
I think this is my favorite card. I die cut different colors of 110 lb card stock using all of the Vintage Snowflakes. I did use three shades of pink card stock but I cannot get that third color to pop. I also used Bazzill Vellum for snow flakes in the background. I adhered all the snowflakes with Gina K Connect Glue on an A2 card made from charcoal card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. This card is going to a friend or my daughter when the first snow falls where they live.
