It’s always exciting to use new product, and today I’m using the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate for the second time.
I began with a Thick Whisper White card base, topped with Feels Like Frost Designer Paper (the silver foil side) that I bordered with Noble Peacock Foil in Old Olive. The papers are in my Product List for a closer look.
Before gluing the two papers together, I used a Beautiful Boughs Die to cut a bough from the Feels Like Frost DSP. Then, I used the same die to cut a bough from the Noble Peacock Foil, filling in the hole, making it inlaid.
I rounded the corners to mimic the TGIF challenge sketch.
It’s wonderful how the Detailed Trio Punch makes it so easy. You can see the other capabilities of the punch by clicking on the picture in my Product List below.
For the circle in the sketch, I took it literally, and used a Layering Circles Die to cut a circle from the Mercury Glass Acetate. My circle needed a top to look like an ornament, and here’s the fun part; I used the Snowman Builder Punch! Doesn’t the snowman’s hat make a great ornament topper?
“Happy Holidays” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and fitting perfectly within the Classic Label Punch.
There’s plenty of shine on this card, but I had to add a few green-toned Iridescent Sequins.
