Crafter's Inspiration Magazine 12 Freebies - Dies

Following on from last weeks post I thought this week I would show you a few more cards made using the free items that came with Magazine.

There are four die's in total. One is a snowflake which I will show you next week (I used it with the free embossing folder), one was a bauble and the other two were stars (one allows you to cut out the whole star and the other cuts a design into the card).

So first up is the bauble which is my personal favourite. This is a 5" x 7" card. Centura Pearl Card for the base along with gold mirror card and red glitter card for layering. Cut three baubles out of Centura Pearl card and two out of gold mirror card and then glued them to red glitter card and cut around the outer edge of the bauble.

Use gel glue to attach them to a strip of Centura Pearl card and red gems for the string. A couple of gold nail heads and a stamped sentiment finished this card off.

The next card is a DL card in a CAS style. The card base is Centura Pearl card using the free embossing folder along the top edge. Apply silver guilding wax very gently to the embossed areas (I used a mini blending ink foam pad). Cut out 5 baubles and glue them to silver card and cut around the outer edge of the bauble. Add liquid Pearls (silver) to form the string and use one of the sentiments to finish.

The last card I want to show you is one using the Star dies. It's a 5" x 7" card and the base is Centura Pearl Card. Gold mirror and gold glitter card is used for layering. Take a smaller piece of Centura Pearl and cut out a couple of complete stars from it. Cut another star using the detailed die and glue to the top. Add a few sequins and one of the sentiments to finish.

I hope I have provided you with some inspiration on what you can design with these dies. Next week I will show you a card made using the free embossing folder.

Have a good weekend all and thanks for stopping by x
