birch press design ADI Spinning Snowflake Card and Video…

hey! Another Christmas card…knockin’ ’em out of the park this week!  Little league baseball lingo there…you can tell where we’ve been two evenings a week! lol

Here’s where my brain took me next working with this ADI layer die set… this is the B layer paired up with the largest snowflake from the poppystamps Shiny Snowflake die set.

 

Then I die cut the Memory Box Warm Christmas Wishes die twice, trimmed off the word warm and glued them together.  I kept the dots for the i’s, even glued them together but in the end, they were lost, bah haha, so Nuvo drops in white to the rescue!

A close up… I die cut two of the outer circle from Layer B and two of the snowflakes.  The DMC metallic thread is sandwiched between the twos.

I used the Mandala Card die set so the circle would be perfectly placed in the card front panel. Die cut it in Canson Bristol Smooth card, inked it all over with Distress Oxide inks (Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers) and made the fun mottled look with a wet shammy… call it Shammy Lift if you want a name!  I did it back a few posts with an AR poppy die, after seeing others doing it.  Then I used another cut of the same Mandala Card die for a template and the matching size Circle Basics die to die cut the circle in the card-base.  That worked slick for getting the circles lined up.

A flat photo…just cuz it turned out pretty good! hehe   Oh, that’s a Memory Box pool notecard cut in half on the inside…love how it matches the Peacock Oxide ink.

Here’s a very short video so you can see it spin!  You can click to You Tube to see it larger HERE

 

Thanks for stopping by today… I have two more cards to show you with this ADI layer set… see you tomorrow!

  1. That background technique is my favorite right now. Those colors are especially gorgeous! Thanks for showing us how to do it.

  2. I always lose the dots. Didn’t notice them missing on your sentiment ’cause your little Nuvo drops are so perfect. Gee, I have that die and haven’t thought to trim off the “warm”, but I love how it looks and will keep it in mind. See, always some kind of inspiration! Such a soft, pretty Shammy Lift background for your mandala which looks so much like a snowflake the way you’ve used, it and it looks like the Poppystamps snowflake was made to go with it. And a spinner, no less. So cool! Love how your mind works!

  3. hi pam, i thought i left a comment here but it seems to have disappeared! lol!
    i am a little confused as to how you keep the focal circle from falling out since the card base circle is the same size?
    and i love your shammy lift technique…what a pretty mottled color your card is!!!
