Curvy Dies for As You See It Challenges #237


curvy dies for aysi 237 1

Back when I created the sketch for As You See It Challenge #237, I didn't have any idea that Stampin' Up! would be bringing out the Curvy Celebration Suite with it's Curvy Dies and the Curvy Christmas stamp set, but the Curvy dies turned out to be the perfect ones to use for the diagonal stripe on the sketch. 

Here's the Challenge Banner:

Because the  curvy die only cuts on one edge, I thought I would go crazy trying to figure out how to get the same curve on both sides of a slit or channel cut in a top layer, but it's impossible, trust me! I ended up creating an effect by layering a small curve of Crumb Cake, a wider curve of Real Red design paper (Classic Christmas 6 x 6 DSP) on top of a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Crumb Cake. See if you can see what I did to understand better:

  • I stamped a sentiment from the Quite Curvy stamp set in the bottom left to fulfill the requirements of the challenge, but I really prefer the design without that sentiment:

  • The plainer version suits the Scandinavian design a bit better. And the Merry Christmas message is better on it's own. What do you think?
  • I used one of the Gold Hoops Embellishments from the Annual Catalogue to hold the white foliage. Most of it is the backside of the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper, also found in the Annual Catalogue. One of the pairs of foliage come from the Curvy Dies, cut from Whisper White cardstock.
  • The stars are die cut using the Stitched Stars dies. The sentiment from Curvy Christmas stamp set is embossed on Crumb Cake in White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Everything is attached to the Gold Hoop using Glue Dots.
