The challenge this week from Craft Your Passion Challenges is “Something Beginning with B” and is sponsored by Diane’s Daydream Designs.


  1. Card base:  Silhouette File, cut from Martha Stewart paper (Christmas), A2.  Edges were stamped with a snowflake background stamp.
  2. First Layer:  Offset from the front of the base.  Cut from Martha Stewart paper (Christmas).  I edged this with a blue pigment ink and then clear embossed.
  3. Second Layer:  Stamp/sentiment printed to vellum, offset from first layer.  This was fussy cut by hand.  I cut out the shape using the Silhouette, I then used this shape as a template for what to cut.  Blue brads were inserted after I used the Big Bite to create the holes.
  4. Bird Digistamp: Deck the Halls from Diane’s Daydream Designs.
  5. Inside:  I masked this so that only the botton 1.5 inches would be stamped.  I used the same stamp and ink as on the card base.  I embossed with clear.
