Let’s use the Pretty Pines Thinlits Dies to make Christmas cards.
I used the set of dies, Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Woodland Embossing Folder to make my card. Notice how I used the left over cut-out circle to make another card? It’s a clever technique for using left-overs when you’re die cutting or using a punch.
Aside from DSP, use embossing folders too because texture will instantly elevate your design.
Here’s how I made the card:
- Cut to size a piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and cut a circle using a circle die or a punch. Set aside the left over circle for another card.
- Attach the DSP with the hole on a card base.
- Die cut the leaves and ribbon from the Pretty Pines Thinlits and attach to your card so that it resembles a bauble.
- Stamp a sentiment that fits inside the bauble.
- Embellish the ribbon with a sequin or gem.
Here’s a list of products I used:
- Pretty Pines Thinlits
- Basic White Cardstock
- Stampin’ Cut & Embossing Machine
- Woodland Embossing Folder
- Glimmer Paper
I hope you that enjoyed this Christmas inspiration and that you’ll give it a go.
