Holiday Season

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, holiday release aElizabeth Craft Designs is releasing a brand new holiday collection of dies and stamps including a whole new group of critter dies AND a whole new line of background dies included rounded corner dies!  I am so excited.

Today I am using the new Owl die set along with the both the new stitched and fitted rounded Rectangle dies set.

IMG_6488I started by die cutting some White Christmas printed paper with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set and smaller rectangles with the Fitted Rounded Rectangle die set.  I cheated a little to make this fit the way I wanted too, and re die cut the smallest rectangle again to trim off several millimeter but yet keep the rounded corners.

IMG_6489Using some Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide to add a touch of color around the edges of the smaller rectangles and then adhered them together using some 3mm clear double sided adhesive.

IMG_6490I tried to ground my background a touch my die cutting the new Fitted Rounded Square die, distressed with some more Aged Mahogany and adhered to the background.

IMG_6492I also die cut the pieces from the new Owl die set and added color to it using Distress Oxides.  I used Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans for the owls body, plus some Wild Honey and Aged Mahogany.
