I bought this ornament cutting design quite a while ago and finally used it on beautiful, glitter paper which, no matter how many times I rung it through the sizzex machine, it would not cut all the fine areas. After almost crunching up the paper, I left my craft room in a huff and went back to this headache a week later. Using the exacto knife, I patiently cut through the designs to achieve the image you see above.....grrrr. I used a pale yellow for the interior because I thought it looked nice and layered all the pieces together including the lovely vellum with the flowers on it. I patiently (grrr) made 3 F^%$! bows for the top, added the stickers after colouring them in the blue and purple(stars) inks and glued on crystals.

I have been working on my friend's scrapbook and am way behind because of all the birthdays in May and buying flowers etc... I have to get this scrapbook done by August 21st!

  2. Hi, Birgit!

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas thanks to you, dear friend. This card is beautiful and well worth all the extra effort required to complete it. Who will be the lucky recipient? I admire the festive ornaments and bows and the subtle shades of non-traditional colors you used.

    Thanks for the warm welcome home, dear friend BB, and enjoy the rest of your week!

  3. Well, if it won't work in the machine (or was it the paper's fault?), it ain't worth the hassle. Nice finished card, though.

    1. Oh no...to me it is but I think that paper is the wrong type because it almost stretches when I hold it in my hands

  4. Sometimes though die cut machines just aren't worth the money. And sometimes they are. Nice card though. I came out beautiful and seems like it was worth the time to hand cut.

    1. Thank you! The machine normally works great so I think it is the glitter cardstock which has a different feel to it than normal cardstock. Glad you like it

    1. Thank you and so glad you like it. I have a base plate but not sure you mean the same thing. This cardstock almost feels like it has rubber in it so I wonder if that was an issue
