Die'sire Christmas Dies

For anyone easily offended look away now lol, yes you guessed it I am showcasing some Christmas products in July. Crafter's Companion have some wonderful Die'sire Christmas Dies now available and being showcased on German tv.
 My first card showcases the Spruce Tree die and the Ivy die.
I have die cut the tree from white card and used the aperture as my focal point, stamping the outside of the aperture with Christmas text using olive Archival Ink, adding a touch of colour to the edges.
I die cut three Spruce Trees from white card, stamped them with text and adhered them one on top of the other for dimension, scoring them in the centre to allow me to bend them to add movement.
Die cut Ivy leaves were added, again coloured with ink around the edges and to complete I added a large decorative bow and coordinated button.
My second sample uses the Fir Trees, Wrought Iron, Lampost and Ivy dies.
The background was coloured with Distress Inks and a touch of embossing added for dimension and further interest. Watch this space for news on the Die'sire Embossalicious Embossing Folders, available later this month.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I do like the way you've inked up the ivy in the first one though Tracy - looks like there's actually snow on the leaves.
