Christmas Ornament

This technique was presented at a get together
Now if I don't tell you would you notice?
Would a non crafter receiving this notice
Now I will tell you the steps
First you do a diagonal strip on a piece of card stock large enough to go behind whatever die cut you want to use
So far so good You folder emboss the background and die cut the opening 
Notice yet?
Layer the opening over the diagonal
Pretty right?
Then decorate
I used a fabric holly that is absolutely gorgeous
I am sharing this card at
See it yet?
Might be hard to see I embossed upside down

Distress Ink BG

I have been seeing this technique on blogs
for a month so I am trying it
Here is my effort

I covered the cardstock with distress ink
then misted the stamp ( a flower and Minnie Mouse)
to stamp into the dried ink
I had a couple of tries before I got what I thought is correct
Then I cut the best of the card piece to use
Now I feel I could use more practice .

SFF Background 287

                                    This week on Speedy Fox and Friends
                                    Pat has put very easy directions to follow
                                        to make the backgound for your project

I follow the steps using Distress ink I got a sort of blotchy background and didn't like it but I did get to use a stencil I bought a week ago so it is now mine and can be put in its' storage place  
 So not liking the result so much I cut the background to  size and made the card using MFP Stamps Budda and Wealthy Fish
This is the stencil I used and in person it really does show
So not being thrilled with the above I tried again
I used Brilliance ink and it turned out lovely
So for the card I used MFP Budda and Birds of the Orient stamps
