Quick die-cutting with a simple Christmas card!

It’s nearly December, so depending on how early you send out your Christmas cards will depend on how much time you have left to make them. Today I’ve got a quick die-cutting simple Christmas card that you can whip up in no time. My tips when it comes to quick die-cutting is to use a cover plate die. This adds a lot of design quickly and sometimes just needs a sentiment to finish it off. So let’s get started!

PRODUCED AS PART OF MY DESIGN-TEAM WORK FOR THE LITTLE PAPER TREE - SEE END OF POST FOR MORE DETAILS

Quick die-cutting with a simple Christmas card!

Quick die-cutting: creating the background

With the Catherine Pooler Designs Holly Frame Cover plate die, die-cut this out of Gina K Designs Cherry Red cardstock once. In addition, die-cut it twice more out of white card and using a nesting rectangle to cut out the stitched frame from the cover plate die. 

Layer up the white stitched frames and adhere these onto the red die-cut piece. For the sparkle background, add wide strips of double-sided tape to a white card base. Remove the release paper and sprinkle a little WOW! Gold Dust Sparkles onto the background before covering the rest wit WOW! Crystal sparkles. Burnish these in with a bone folder to prevent the glitter from shredding. 

Quick die-cutting with a simple Christmas card!

For the sentiment, die-cut the Catherine Pooler Happy Holidays word die out of white cardstock. Next, cover this with embossing ink and WOW! Metallic gold rich embossing powder before heat setting. Repeat this 2-3 times for smooth look and then adhere to the front of the card with liquid adhesive. 

Lastly, add a few Chalkstick Nuvo Vintage drops to finish the card off.
