I really should use my BigShot more! I bought it all those years ago for the box dies …. they are brilliant for when I am stumped for a presentation box …. but I just don’t use them often enough, and when I do, I am blown away all over again by how fantastic they are!!!
So …….. a friend asked me to make a gift voucher ….. and immediately I thought of my Gift Holder Die (658189 Sizzix Bigz XL). It is so simple to use and put together, but looks so professional.I chose a double sided paper that looked classy and sophisticated from my New Leaf 12 x 12 Pad (Dunelm).
I had to make the voucher itself and side plate from scratch …. using Papyrus font, printing on the reverse of the patterned paper and then mat and layering both on silver mirror card.
The final touch was a jewelled snowflake on the fastening tab on the front (as I made it just before Christmas I used one of the large plastic snowflakes I found in a charity shop awhile back.
Done and dusted!
