I've had this Nordic Winter die for a while and when people told me how fiddly it was to cut loads of bits put me off but to be honest I found it quite easy although I kept losing my bits white dots!

I cut out my cardstock to fit the die and inked round the edges with a black inkpad to give it a bit of depth. Then I put tape across the back so that it was just a matter of cutting the colours and dropping it into the revelent space.

I added a bit of May Arts Burlap Twine to keep the rustic look. I added a snowflake made with Simon Stamp Lea Snowflake die and stamped out sentiment from Tiny Words Christmas.

Since it was too bad making the background I chose to make another with a Scandi feel about it. I made the same has the one above but used white and red. It also meant less waste. This time I used two snowflakes Simon says Stamp Lea but also Marie Snowflake die. Oh and I used the Inside Christmas Greeting for the sentiment.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Wowzers, girl, these cards are amazing! Ditto what Lols said, I NEED this for next year!

Pat said...

This is an interesting background die Debby, but also looks perfect just as it is with your pretty snowflakes and a rustic look with the twine on both cards, and just a slightly different but similar style of sentiment. Beautiful cards.

Chrissy said...

Both are fabulous Debby, I would have worried about the little bits too..

WOW! Debby, those took some patience, but what a wonderful and delightful result on each card.

I LOVE these cards! I think I would have used some Nuvo Drops in the little white circle cut-outs, though. Trying to hang onto the paper ones and then place them would have made me cross-eyed!! The Nuvo Drops would add some nice texture, too.

Both cards are beautiful x
