Noor! Design Team Application

Hello everyone! Today's post is my application to join the UK Noor! Design Team. I had to go for this one as they sell all the things I love - die cutters, cut outs, chipboard shapes, masks and stencils, stamps............. So many yummy treats! Although for this application I made a card (as per the rules), I hope I could bring a wide range of types of project to Noor! Design including mixed media, 3D makes and scrapbook pages.

Apologies in advance that I made a Christmas card in July but as so many companies are releasing their new Christmas goodies around about now, it seemed appropriate for this submission.  I use die cuts on almost every project I make and this card is no exception!

To create it, I glittered white die cuts (Distress Glitter - Rock Candy) before layering them as shown onto an embossed kraft card panel flecked with white paint. I added flowers made from old music sheet, which I also glittered before placing as shown along with a Doobadoo bow. My 'winter' word is die cut in cream to tone with the flowers and to finish I added a few pearls enhance the vintage look. The card blank is 5x7 in size.

I used the following Noor! Design products to make my card:
  • Joycrafts dies: Winter Wishes (2033), Ice Crystal Edge (2021), Crystal Die 3 (2020), 8 Point Die (0358)
  • Dutch Doobadoo: Paper Art A5 Scattered Bows (017), Craft Art A5 Leaves (008)
I also need to add my social media links - friends if you don't follow me on these I'd love to see you there!
Fingers crossed!

See you soon,
Katy x
