Here's a side view of the card.

I cut out a section of the Dainty Flowers paper, layered it onto a co-ordinating cardstock mat and adhered it onto the card base with dimensionals to give it some height.

Alternatively, you can use a modern take on the 'rip & flip' technique where you flip over one of the diecut pieces to show the reverse paper pattern.

Angela's PaperArts: Christmas chocolate slider box

Do you need an affordable gift for friends & work colleagues? Then this chocolate slider featuring Stampin' Up!'s retiring Leaves of Holly bundle is the perfect solution.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin' Up! Christmas chocolate slider box featuring Leaves of Holly and Holly Berry dies

You simply make an open ended box and slide a chocolate bar into it between some ribbon and tie it into a bow.

 Pull the ribbon bow and the chocolate slides out of the box.

These slider boxes can be made to fit any size of chocolate bar and decorated to suit any occasion.  I've used the retiring Stampin' Up! Leaves of Holly stamp set & co-ordinating Holly Berry dies to decorate the largest chocolate slider, but you could use any embellishments to suit your purpose.

Angela's PaperArts: Whimsical Woodland Masked Christmas Card

I wanted to highlight how cute the Stampin' Up! Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder is on these cards.

Angela's PaperArts: Stampin' Up! Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder mask technique Christmas card

I used a masking technique to create the coloured centre piece to highlight the embossing on both of these cards.  For the card on the left, I used metallic gilding polish from my stash for a bright finish.  For the card on the right, I used a Stampin' Up! blending brush to blend three inks for a softer look. 

Which do you prefer? 

Here's the brighter version with a metallic gilding polish centre.Angela's PaperArts: Stampin' Up! Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder mask technique Christmas card

Here's the ink blended version with three different Stampin' Up! ink colours.
