Noel – Avery Elle

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.noel 2 close

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.
