Here’s One I’m Making – Christmas Cards 2016 (2)

As we are in the height of August, it’s the perfect time to make my Christmas Cards, having not been able to complete them last year, I am determined to complete them this year. With the Olympics now starting, I am looking forward to a number of evenings crafting and cheering on Team GB.

CC_2016_02_01One of the things that I love doing whilst watching TV is die-cutting, especially if I have a lot of an item to cut and this card has a lot of die cutting elements.

CC_2016_02_02With the die cutting and embossing I have now completed:

  1. Die Cut Window Frames
  2. Cut out Acetate for windows
  3. Stamp snowflakes on acetate (with white Stazon) and stick to windows
  4. Ink background cards and mask out snow and moon
  5. Stamp silhouette designs on to background cards (all different)
  6. Cut out the trims for the windows
  7. Cut out the word Merry for each card
  8. Emboss Snow on the background card

CC_2016_02_03I love the etched dies, you can get so much detail in such delicate dies. I have cut the trims from mirricard and they have all turned out perfect. However I do use the Precision Base Plate when using detailed thin dies.
