Find It

Find It

Hi There!

You may wonder what you
are being asked to find.......
Worry not Find It is the name
of a die cut company, new to
us but some of you may be
familiar with them.

We thought we'd give them a
whirl this week and here is
Jane Castle to start us off:

"Well time is marching on at a pace
 and if you have not made all of your 
Christmas cards yet here's a 
fairly quick idea that can be 
changed with a different centre piece
 so as to not get boring in the making.

To begin with I did all of the die cutting
 using a fab set from Find-It Media 
called 'Christmas Card Set'.

This set is great value for money,
cuts and embosses beautifully and
 some elements can be used all year round. 

Below I've added a photo of a piece
 I cut, embossed and then stamped whilst
 the card was still in the die. 
This leaves a very fine clean edge all the way 
round rather than cutting after stamping.

Whoops, back to the job in hand!

Next I stamped the crate image from a 
Craft Emotions stamp set onto white card
 and kraft card. The kraft card was then
 cut so as to form the outside of the crate.

Both images were heat embossed with clear 
embossing powder. Colour was added using 
Distress Markers and Jelly Roll pens.

The card blank had DI in old paper added 
to the edges and then using the same ink 
stamped the zig-zag lines from Jofy 07. 
These were then brushed with Perfect Pearls.

A tag was stamped using Jofy 47 stamp set
 and this was attached to the crate with some
 ribbon before fixing to the card.

A little Treasure Gold was rubbed onto the 
die cut mounts after lightly sanding. 

The gorgeous holly die-cuts were then
 slightly shaped and curled as I prefer things 
not completely flat.

Stickles were added to the berries and 
Pewter Liquid Pearls added to the crate
 to enhance the nails.

It's a long while since I made any traditional 
red/green Christmas cards and they do have 
that magical feel to them, I wonder if it will catch on!!

Enjoy your Christmas card making X"

Items Used:

Many thanks Jane, a super
project to start us off

At the rate I'm going it doesn't
look like I shall be sending any
cards this year! Better get 
my skates on......

  1. Gorgeous card Jane! The leaves and swirls are so detailed, they're just perfect for these Christmas makes. And that small touch of green and red keeps it traditional without turning garish!

  2. A great card. The die cutting is impressively sharp and detailed. I tend to go for the cool winter colours in cards but really you can't go wrong with red and green at Christmas xx

  3. Loving the card, very useful die too. Happy creative week, Angela xXx
