Hot on the heals of part one, here are three more cards made using the Nordic Winter die with the help of our old friend the Lumber 3-D Embossing Folder.

Plenty to choose from so lets get busy...

After cutting three pieces of grey card I gently spritzed them front and back with clean water. This helps create a deeper and more detailed emboss without splitting the fibres of the card.

Once the pieces have dried I applied a little gesso using my brayer to give a bleached wood effect. I also applied a little Pumice Stone Distress Ink around the edges. I took a length of twine a fashion it into loose a loose spiral before mounting onto one of the rectangles using a stapler.

After inking the edges of my die-cuts I added some stamped detail to the house. Next, I created the base card (the font is Raleway) placing the text at a slight angle before stamping the snowflake with London Fog grey ink.


I attached the die-cuts using adhesive foam pads before mounting in place on the base card...simple!

I created the sentiment on my PC (the font is Raleway) and trimmed it to size before mounting onto the grey strip using and eyelet and staple, which I then threaded with a length of twine.

After applying the stamped detail to the base card I splattered a few drops of Distress Stain.


All that remains is to mount my strip!

I applied the gesso to a strip of  corrugated card before inking the edges. Next, I applied ink to my trees and star before mounting them onto the grey strip

I applied the stamped detail to the face of the printed base card (the font is Raleway) using London Fog grey ink. Next, I mounted the other elements together using tiny staples.


After attaching all the elements to the base card I added a few adhesive gems for that finishing touch.


Well that was fun, hope you liked them too?

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
