Chicken Wire Holiday Card
One of the Cheery Lynn Designs August new release dies is FRM144 Chicken Wire. Unlike most of the frames produced by Cheery Lynn Designs, this cuts the chicken wire pattern into your paper but does not cut out the frame portion. For my card, I created a card base 5 x 7 inches, taped the die to the front of the card, turned the card inside out and die cut the opening into the front panel. Then I added the snowflake DP behind it. Now if I want a frame, I would just cut my card stock to size, center the die and cut it out. The beauty of this kind of die is that I can match the pattern and cut a bigger piece of chicken wire. I will do just that for my Monday post on the challenge blog so be sure to stop by. Now back to my card....
To create these beautiful snowflakes I used flower parts from B188 Embellishment 2 and B181B Build a Flower 1. I used pop dots between the layers to give them more dimension. My last step was to add the Happy Holidays Sentiment. A very easy but lovely card.
