Die Cut Christmas Card

Hello, crafty friends. In celebration of DIEcember, I thought I would share another project created mostly of die-cuts… I started by die-cutting THIS panel from kraft card stock to create the background. I like how the die doesn’t cut but pierces tiny holes to create texture. I die-cut several leaf dies from various shades of green card stock. I placed them on the background and after I was happy with the arrangement, I added...

Peace Slimline Card

I inked over the masks with multiple Distress Oxide inks (all the...

Next, I cut a grassy hill using...
