Another of my samples from the release of Sue Wilson's fabulous new Festive Die Collection. I have a real love for the gemini dies so this had to be one of the first dies I picked up and had to play with. The brilliant thing about the gemini is that you get a centre cutting line as well as 2 different sides or edges. This enables you to make so many different detailed die cuts.
I stared this card by cutting a piece of gold pearl card to 51/4 inches. I then cut the top section of the gemini, without the cutting edge, across the top. Next I cut the bottom die in the set across the bottom of the strip of card, again without the cutting edge, this gives you the gold panel which has all the detail across the top and bottom leaving the centre panel.
I used the centre cutting die to cut a white panel that fits exactly the lines in the lower panel ( Hope that makes sense) I then tied a piece of candy striped ribbon across the front.
For the background I embossed a piece of bright white foundation card with the let it snow A4 embossing folder. I smoothed Gold Treasure metallic gilding polish over the top and added a PVA pearl in the centre of each snowflake.
