Quick Technique #1 – DIY Snowflake Background

Add double sided sticky sheet to the back of glitter paper. Die-cut snowflakes and adhere onto white cardstock panel to create a background. Trim excess with scissors. You can use any small die like this to create a unique one of a kind background for your cards.

Quick Technique #2 – Reverse Die Cut

Die-cut 2 birds out of red cardstock. Emboss one the correct way, emboss another one by placing the die cut onto the flat side of the die and emboss the other way to create a mirror die cut.
