I couldn't get my head around Christmas just yet so I have had a play with some of the new dies from the Sophia range. Oh my there are some lovely products in this new release!
Anyway here is my layout
I have used 2 of the new dies on this layout. Ferretti, which is the flourish under the embossed heart at the bottom. This is a lovely big flourish. Perfect for scrap pages and big enough to cut in half and not loose any of the effect.
The other die I used was the Bloch. This is the row of tulips. How cute! I inked the bottom of it and then embossed it with one of the new Christmas embossing folders. The pattern wasn't too Christmasy so it worked perfectly.
Here is how I made the lacy border at the top and bottom
I cut out my Tattered Lace die from the Fantasia collection
I have then just cut the tops off each end and positioned it so it looks like a border
I did this for the top and bottom border.
I have used core cardstock and embossed them. I then sanded back the top layer for a white washed look.
Thanks for letting me share.
Until next time
