Holiday Card Workshop 2013 Class Wrap Up

I Love the way this card and technique came out, especially after the 4th time.  The only reason why I had to try it so many times was the tape to mask the kept ripping the paper as I peeled it off.  Then when I finally got the hang of it, my embossing power didn't stick, so I had to do it again......I don't plan to make another one like this, so my Nephew will be the one and only.

Day 2 Holiday Card Workshop Die Cutting for Holiday Cards

Day 2 Holiday Card Workshop Die Cutting for Holiday Cards

I really wanted to try the Layered Die Cut Inlay shown by Jennifer, but when I pulled out the Die's I wanted to use they were attached and I couldn't pull them apart to Layer them.  What a bummer.....

So I decided to use my Snowman Die and use the Technique shown by Laurie Willison, Unique Die Cut folds.  Create a flap behind your Die Cut to reveal a special message.
