Our Best Wishes by Els Brigé for Taheerah Atchia's Advent Calendar Extravaganza 2015

There’s no patterned paper on this card, the plaid motif is spunged on with some black ink. The video shows you how I did it.

I used a Simon Says Stamp snowflake die to make a flake from white glitter fun foam. I had to run it a couple of times through my die-cutting machine to make sure it was cut all the way through. And then I carefully peeled it of the backer, since my foam has an adhesive back. I removed most of the adhesive however, except for the middle part.

The sentiment I used is from one of my own Dutch stamp sets, and means ‘our best wishes’. I stamped it in black to match the black pattern of the background.
