Midway DT Inspiration for FitzTown Challenge "Paper Piecing!"

Good morning Bloggers!

My pain is still the same so I am so glad I have made these DT cards ahead of time lol!
Thank you all so much for your kind words and comments on my projects.  
All this wouldn't be worth it without all of you!

I hope you are all well and enjoying our Current Challenge of Paper Piecing!

It is so easy to do and so much quicker than coloring and the effects on your images are just amazing.

I paper pieced this image from the Winter Collection called Winter 10 (You can find and buy her here: Winter Collection) using some Christmas DP Paper. I decided to make my own shaker card by die cutting card and using foam tape and snowflakes acetate to cover the window.  I used white glitter in the shaker, which I'm afraid you cannot see on the photo.

Here is what I made:

I have used Xcut Dies to cut for the Shaker.  Marianne Creatables corner dies and the Spellbinders Rose die for the flower.   The border on the left hand side is from an XCut Border Punch.

For the Layers in the middle I embossed some pearl white card and used some Blue ink to distress over the top to bring out the embossing on the card.  I then layered this onto some silver mirrored card.  I wrapped some gorgeous blue ribbon around the centre of the card and in the middle too!


The DP Card used to make the card was from a Christmas set  bought from Crafters Companion.  This is a large Card made from using two A4 DP Card.  The snowy Acetate was also from the same set.
Glitter from my crafty stash.

Have a gorgeous day
Lots of love
