Sizzix Design Team. Every day I am blown away by their incredible ideas and original ways they use Sizzix products. When I saw this recent project by Hilary Kanwischer, I about fell over. It's so cool!! I happened to spot the Christmas Trees Framelits die set last weekend at Archiver's and into my basket it went. I saw a 3D card at the store and immediately knew that the tree die would work perfectly for that technique. Inspiration is everywhere!
Compendium of Curiosities challenge, Texture Fade Techniques, to create the snowy background. I used Tim's Snow Flurries Texture Fade, a Snow Cap Dabber, and Evergreen Bough Distress ink to create it. The tree layers were cut from My Mind's Eye polka dot paper using the Christmas Trees Framelits die. After they were cut, I folded them in half and glued them back to back, creating the 3D effect. After I adhered the tree to the background, I covered the whole thing in glitter.
Noel companion Sizzlits set. I was so happy to find that one of the shades of Tim's Kraft Core'dinations paper matched the MME paper perfectly. I use it to cut the Noel, layered it to the PNC pop-up and added a little Rock Candy Dry Glitter. I trimmed the inside with various papers and stickers from the MME collection. I have a feeling I'll be hoarding that paper!
