FANCY PANTS AND ADD A LITTLE DAZZLE BLOG HOP BANNER

Welcome to Day 2 of our swap week with our friends at Add a Little Dazzle! Please visit both blogs all week to see some gorgeous creations and for your chance to win one of two fabulous prize packs!

The Add a Little Dazzle sheets are made of metal you don’t often find in paper crafting. They are strong, flexible, forgiving and easy to work with.

For my project I made two holiday cards using the Oh Deer! collection, new from Fancy Pants. Add a Little Dazzle has a wonderful shiny metal on the back of every sheet, as well as rich red and turquoise blue sheets. These went really well with the Oh Deer! sequins, colors and patterns.

To start off, I want to show you how easy it was to cut the Add a Little Dazzle sheets on my die cut machine. I used a hand-operated one, not my electric. The sheets pressed in all of the right places, didn’t crimp and didn’t bend as I worked to adhere them to my cards.

The shiny ornament is the perfect backdrop for the fun holiday sentiment and candy canes on the one card.

I used a winter hat and mittens die to make the shiny accessories for my snowman card. I was thrilled that the Add a Little Dazzle sheets bend so easily so that I could shape the mittens from the snowman around the sentiment on the card. It looks like he is holding it!
