Hello – I’m here today to share a couple of cards featuring one of my favourite sets of the year – NOEL from Avery Elle. I just love the big, bold Nordic-style fonts and gorgeous snowflake images – it’s such a useful set. The three snowflake dies that compliment the set are also absolute MUST HAVE’S in your collection – again – perfects sizes for all kinds of projects (I have a post coming up soon featuring other ways I’ve used this set – stay tooned!!!)
So, to say I have an unhealthy obsession with Glossy Accents is an understatement! I buy it three at a time and start to get palpitations when I get down to my last bottle! This card is a perfect example of why I love it so much! LOOK how it turned that snowflake die-cut into what looks like an acrylic or enamel embellishment – swoon!
I cut the snowflakes from white card and then used a Copic marker to add a touch of colour to the edges. I coated the snowflakes with a clear Wink of Stella and them covered them in GA and waited patiently for them to dry. I stamped the NOEL sentiment in Tumbled Glass distress ink (a perfect match for the snowflake) and finished it off with some white twine.
My second card is possibly not one you’d really want to send in the mail – it weighs a ton!! I used the large snowflake to create a shaker window out of some Avery Elle Sea glass cardstock and filled it with tiny, little micro-beads. I cut a smaller snowflake from white card and popped it onto the middle of the window finished with a silver sequin. The NOEL sentiment was used again but this time heat embossed in white.
