Die Cutting Distress Inks Heat Embossing Stencils/Masks

Fawny Holiday Week: Christmas Tag



Hi there and thanks for joining me today! All week long Lawn Fawn has been hosting a holiday party on the blog! A week full of holiday inspiration chalk full of projects, videos and giveaways!!!! I am pleased as punch to be there AND here for the next THREE days showcasing a few projects I made in celebration of this week! Today’s project is a simple Christmas tag showcasing the Stitched Snowflake dies as a stencil!

Yup, you can use your dies as a stencil! I die cut the snowflakes with this blank stencil paper by Ellen Hutson and used it as a mask!  The stencil paper comes in two sizes and allows you to die cut and use your own stencils and mask! Super cool.  I added some touches of distress ink to create that gorgeous snowflake background! As a finishing touch, I heat set the tag from THIS tag stamp set and die cut it with THIS set onto vellum!  And the embossing powder? Is it no surprise I used Liquid Platinum embossing powder? I love it and it goes with EVERYTHING!!!!! I finished it off with a bow from the silver lawn trimmings.  I really wanted to snowflake background to be the showcase on this card, hence the vellum…. 🙂




I’ll be back tomorrow with another fun project. This one will be sparkly, just sayin!
