Something New...

613 Ave C has a new challenge... "ATG/ optional Twist: Something New".  You have the month of January to show your creative talents!  For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas - check out the DT inspiration concepts HERE!

I enjoy these really unique dies from The Stamp Doctor - this one is "Snowflake Pop-a-Top."  It is placed across the midline of the front of a top fold card and it will cut the snowflake shape out of the card and create a new fold line across to each side.  

Below is a pic of the front of the card folded flat with the pop-up snowflake fitting back into the card stock.  
You can't even see the cut line in this photo - but as you fold at the crease, the snowflake pops up leaving the negative hole in the front of the card. 


This photo on the right actually does show the negative of the die, but without the right contrast my eye only sees the white as a second snowflake on the front of the card... that's weird when you know what it is and your brain still can't see it!
This photo lets you see it is an easel card.
The paper is from Holiday Cheer by Traci Smith.  It is double sided 6 x 6" pack by Photoplay Paper.  I die cut a second copy of the snowflake out of that DP to make the pop-out show up against the dark background of the base card and then Wink of Stella was applied to all of the Pop-up.  The DP was also used for the front and inside panels with a hand doodled border created on both.  A white pen created the lace for her petticoat.
Copics were used on the Mo Manning image to match the DP and Diamond Glaze was applied to her eyes and buttons on her coat.
The sentiment is a 2004 stamp from River City Rubber Works.  And finally, the small white snowflakes were punched with a Martha punch.
