Initially I was planning on using it to make a card with a window in the front corner, but let me tell you all that changed in a flash when I happened across a video tutorial on Glenda Caulkins blog site . She demonstrates some unique and interesting ways to use the Movers and Shapers magnetic die cuts not only for this card project, but for others. She's awesome!
I was intrigued by her floating ornament card and as soon as I saw it I shamelessly wanted to CASE it. My intention was to use the Candy Cane Christmas Specialty DSP from the Holiday Mini catalogue (SOLD OUT) along with the Merry Crittermas Stamp set I had on order. Imagine my disappointment when the stamp set arrived but not the DSP. I was fortunate to get my order in just before it sold out but the last I checked, it's still in transit. Oh well, my fingers are crossed it'll arrive this week and then I'll make this card again and post it for you.
Okay, so not to be defeated and because I was dying to make this card, I rummaged through my scrap DSP and found some retired SU paper that looked like it would work, and I teamed it up with Creamy Caramel and Real Red Cardstock. I loved the simplicity of this card, the few supplies required and how quick it was to make. It kind of reminds me of Hansel and Gretel and/or gingerbread houses....what do you think? Here's a view of the full card from a couple of different angles.
The trick to making this card is to ensure that the fold is centered on the die cut and the Big Shot plate only covers to the fold line when you run it through the machine. If you watch the video tutorial it is self explanatory.
