Snowy Scene

A good Friday to you all!
Today I have a very clean-and-simple Christmas card made with
TOP DOG DIES
and a cute print from Lawn Fawn's "Fa La La" 6X6 Paper Pad.

 The die that I used for this card is steel-rule A2 Card #4.
I really, really like the design of this die because it can be turned as I have it
shown here, opened to the right or with the flap at the top.  You could also
create a gift card holder with it or an envelope!  

First, I cut the actual card base from a white piece of cardstock.  
Next, I cut the design of patterned paper (shown above) using just the
scrolled portion of the die.  

I took the same paper from the pad and lined up the scroll piece over the other
paper so that the design matched (see above); place the layered pieces back onto the die
(follow the indentations on the die so that you will have proper placement).
Remove the scroll piece of paper and run the second piece back through to die-cut.


Adhere the pieces to the card and use a set of thin magnets to hold the flap closed.

I embellished lightly with just a smattering of small pearls to resemble snowflakes,
a die-cut sentiment from Elle's Studio and an evergreen ribbon bow by May Arts Ribbon!

I cannot wait to try out more stuff with this die...I'm thinking it would make a cool mini album too :)

Have a fun weekend!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!


Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
