Twinkle ornament in Marisol Frame

Hi everyone - I'm doing an extra post at Die Cut Divas today! It's the least I could do since I'm taking off the month of December. My card uses a gatefold frame with layers - I hope it inspires you to enter our November Challenge - Anything Goes

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio Brights & glitter cardstock;
Dies - Birch Press Design Marisol Frames Layer Set
Poppystamps Oval Burst
Other - May Arts ribbon

This month we're sponsored by the amazing Birch Press Design
Note: They have 25% off in their online store through today!

The lucky random winner, selected from eligible November entries, 
will receive a $20 code to the BPD online store (to be announced December 3rd). 

When I posted last Monday, I mentioned I was expecting a package from BPD any day. Well, it arrived later that same day - what amazing service!! Busy week so I had to wait to get busy with new goodies but managed something for today. I ordered the Marisol frame set, over the others styles available, because it seemed to fit more of the ornaments I already own. Of course I couldn't resist adding another one to the collection and chose the Twinkle set. 

Simple card - I just die cut and assembled. I decided to use only one layer of the ornament for a different look but I filled the center with cut from a new Poppystamps die. I ordered it when they sponsored the Divas back in August. The oval burst is bigger than my ornament's opening but I simply glued along the center's back edge and trimmed the excess. I'm adding this card to Darnell's November NBUS Challenge since the frame set got first play here.

Now for a bonus card using a new BDP holiday die: Piped Icing Star. Love, love, love it!!

I simply die cut the two "cookie" pieces and layered them, stacking more diecuts of the star piece behind for dimension. Added the star to a piece of old (2012!!) My Mind's Eye "All is Bright" paper & layered to an A2 card - done!

Remember - our November Diva Challenge - Anything Goes runs through 9pm Pacific Time on November 30th and you must use a die cut &/or embossing folder in your design. We hope to see you in the gallery!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
