White Russian

Hello.  Welcome.  I keep meaning to join the Marianne Design challenge but the time just seems to go.....  But this time it's White, and since I have been very partial to white recently, I decided to get on and create.  

I love this little russian doll die!  Isn't she cute?!!  I made the card front by embossing a piece of white card with Marianne Design DS0911.  This is an embossing folder that also makes some cuts.  I shaped the panel using a Sizzix circle die top and bottom and a pair of scissors for the side curves.  I took a card base of the same card, cut the bottom of the card with the circle die and attached the embossed panel.  It rocks!!  I cut the pine branches (LR0126) and the russian doll (LR0171) from white scraps and added them to the card.  I attached a snippet of white ribbon using a white snowflake brad.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. Brilliant tag - I love how you improvised by using circular dies for top and bottom shaping then bravely fussy cutting the sides. And that little Russian doll is so cute!
