There are three new Els van de Burgt Studio Background die sets: Chevron, Heart, and Circle. There are so many different ways to use these background stamps, but today I wanted to show you what I did with the Circle Background after watching the Technique Friday With Els YouTube Video - Sparkly Circle Background.
I followed Els instructions for die cutting the Circle Background using to sheets of cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive. You can see this video at this LINK. The colors of Silk Microfine Glitter I used include: Lavender Ice, Lavender, Silver, Warm Diamond, and Soft Green.
After I completed the background following Els instructions, using all the glitters except the green, I die cut another Circle Background and used only some of the die cut circles, which were glittered with the Soft Green Glitter. They were attached in the center of a few of the lavender circles.
Using the dies from the Els van de Burgt Studio Entwined Oval die sets, Snowflakes were die cut using a piece of card stock that was covered with the Clear Double Sided Adhesive. All the snowflakes were covered with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter. Some of the Snowflakes were glued together. Snowflakes were added to some of the lavender circles. A pearl was attached to the center of each snowflake.
Using the Holiday Garland 1 and Holiday Garland 2 die sets, the Holly Leaf Garland was die cut and glittered with the Silk Microfine Soft Green Glitter. These garlands were glued to the left side of the card front.
Using Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia and Garden Notes Small Poinsettia dies, two flowers were die cut, using white card stock. The base of each petal was colored using light green PanPastel. The leaves under the poinsettias were also colored, using green PanPastels.
Working with these new background frames creates beautiful backgrounds for your projects.
