Penny Black Wings of Peace & Giveaway

Today I have another make-n-take project that I shared at the Create-N-Connect convention in Las Vegas and giveaway news

This holiday greeting features one of Penny Black's new Creative Dies called Wings of Peace.

Wings of Peace
The negative die cut was placed over metallic gold paper with a few pop dots placed under the dove to give flight to the design.  The sentiment and holly branch are stamps from the transparent sets: Glad Tidings and Peace & Joy.

These two quick variations show how you can use the die cut for different techniques.

Here the white negative piece was "puzzled pieced" with a positive red die cut.

It's all about the glitter in this sample.  Clear packaging tape was placed on the back of the white (negative) die cut and then glitter was sprinkled on the front of the exposed "sticky" portions of the tape.

To give you an idea of how the positive image looks, I mounted it to red cardstock.

Close Up
The definition of the precisely cut image makes a big impact.  Want a little sparkle?  Just add a touch of Stickles.

These designs are all a part of Penny Black's new Colorful Christmas which will be available starting August 16.
