For this card I have used an 8 x 8 card base. I have used red card to matt & layer, followed by white card. On the white card I have used my piercing ruler to make the holes.

For the next layer I have used the Creative Expressions A4 Embossing Folder By Sue Wilson Large Celtic Flower EF-016 on white card.

I then used the border die from the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Corners Border & Tag Dies Californian Collection CED1102 on white card and used cosmic shimmer acrylic glue to stick it to the card near the bottom.

I used a festive card stock from my stash and covered it with a double sided adhesive sheet. I die cut the let it snow in white card using the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Festive Collection Let It Snow CED3004. I then took the backing off the adhesive sheet and placed the let it snow die cut in the middle. I then used the Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels Iced Snow and covered the whole piece of card in it. I used my acrylic glue to stick on some Creative Expressions Self Adhesive white 5mm Pearls. I used Stix2 Double Sided Foam Pads 24 x 24 x 2mm S57139 to mount this onto the card to give it some depth.

I used a piece of white tulle under my flowers. I used white card to die cut the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Festive Collection Holly Sprays CED3013. I used the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson Classic Rose Dies Finishing Touches Collection CED1407 to create the rose’s on my card. I used my acrylic glue on the rose and covered them with iced snow glitter jewels. I then glue them to my card.

I added a bow made from the Creative Expressions Craft Dies By Sue Wilson 3D Classic Itty Bitty Bows CED1408 in the corner of the card.

Hi Crafter’s,

Have you ever had a die that doesn’t cut all over no mater what you try or how many bits of card shims you stick in?

Well the other day I was told about metal shims by a fellow crafter. So I looked into finding some.

Spellbinders do a metal shim for the grand calibur so I ordered some in for my shop.

I got straight to work to see how well it worked and I was very impressed.

So the first thing you need to know is the sandwich layers.

For the Grand Calibur only;

1, A. Base Plate

2, Metal Shim

3, Paper, felt or fabric

4, (For detail dies on paper) wax paper

5, Die ridges face down

6, B. Embossing Plate

Then cut, if you are using paper or card take out the metal shim then use the tan rubber mat in the normal sandwich to emboss.

The next image is using a die cut that I have had the most problems with and it cut it in two passes.

Dies used on felt and fabrics, cotton, cotton fur and towelling.

Flowers made up.

Felt flowers, Sue Wilson Die CED1407 Classic Rose.

Felt flowers, Spellbinders S4-357 Spiral Blossom Three Die.

Felt flowers, Spellbinders S5-086 Bitty Blossoms Die.

Felt flowers, Spellbinders S5-086 Bitty Blossoms Die.

Felt flowers, Sue Wilson Delicate Daisies Complete Petals CED1417 Die.

In my opinion the Spellbinders Metal Shim makes cutting detailed dies so much easier, and cutting felt and fabrics a breeze.

The Spellbinders Metal Shim is now in stock at Louloupurple in Dolgellau. Due to the weight of this plate we have not got it listed on the website, but if you are happy to pay for the extra weight in postage then please email us at info@louloupurple.co.uk

Happy Crafting.

Back in August I had an idea for my next window display, so I started to make the tree on the 10th August.

With lots of newspaper, masking tape and glue I started constructing.

Seven weeks later and it is now in my shop window.
