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...

Joyful Season Card Kit

Hi there, crafty friends. Today’s card features THIS card kit… I started by creating a gatefold card. I started with a 8.5 x 5.5 piece of white card stock and scored it at 2 1/4 inch from both sides.
