Today I have another card designed using Susan's Snow Garden Winter Bough Glimmer Plate. The design was gold foiled onto green mirror card stock. It was die cut and attached to a 3D Brick embossed gold metallic background.
The Snow Garden, Hemlock, Cone & Chickadee die set was used to die cut the Hemlock, Cones and Chickadee. I used Susan's Specialty Cardstock and Flower Tool Kit. OLO markers were used to color all the die cuts. The American Holly die set was used to die cut the Holly. The Holly was die cut colored and clear crystal glaze brushed on. Red styrofoam berries were added.
Susan's Snow Garden Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and die set was used for the sentiment. It was gold foiled onto black cardstock, die cut and attached with dimensional tape.

Today I have a slimline card using Susan's Snow Garden Release.
For the background, I used Spellbinders Holiday Floral Swag 3-D embossing folder. The folder is actually suppose to be turned the other way, but I wanted the ribbon at the top. It was embossed on a piece of light green glitter cardstock.
The Hemlock, Cones, & Chickadee die set was used to die cut the Hemlock branches. Each point was split in half using the scissors in Susan's Flower Tool Kit. The little pinecones were also die cut from this die set. Susan has a YouTube Video showing how to create these cute little pine cones. The other die in this set is the Chickadee. It was die cut, colored and attached with dimensional tape.
Using Susan's Poinsettia die set, one red poinsettia was created. I used Susan's Specialty Cardstock and OLO markers to color it. For additional greenery, Susan's new American Holly die set was used for the Holly Leaves. After they were die cut using watercolor paper, they were colored, shaped and crystal clear glaze added for the shine.
To complete the arrangement, Susan's Berry Branch was die cut and red Styrofoam balls added for the berries. The balls were colored using Copic reinkers.
Susan's new Snow Garden Sentiments Hot Foil plate set was used for the greeting. It was gold foiled onto black cardstock and die cut using the matching die. The Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System was used for the foiling.
