Use Christmas dies to create cards for all year round

Evening, I though I would catch up with a bit of blogging, and share with you some cards that have features in the Die Cutting Essentials magazine, issue 7

i was asked to create a set of non Christmassy cards, using Christmas themed dies. I thought it was a brilliant idea, because we all need to make use of our well earned stash all through the year.

I worked with these Dovecraft Christmas Basics Dies


To begin with I just began cutting the dies from card stock and fiddling about with the shapes they created, I was then able to see how I could snip into them and alter them. By combining different shapes I was able to create other shapes, and each of the following cards evolved from there.

For detailed instructions on how each of the cards are created, get yourself a copy of the Die Cutting Essentials magazine





I have used a variety of products ranging from Clarity Stamps, Graphic 45 papers, Distress Inks


Many thanks for looking, I hope I have inspired you to look at your stash in a slightly different way. Give yourself a little challenge and create something different.


see you next time
