How To Make 5 Cards With 1 Die

For my second feature in this months edition of The Social Papercrafter Magazine, I show you how to make 5 Christmas cards using 1 wreath die.

How To Make 5 Cards With 1 Die

I’ve recently added this beautiful Amy Design “Christmas Wishes” Holly Wreath cutting die to my stash and wanted to show you 5 different cards using the same die.

Each card took less than 30 minutes and are suitable for all abilities to make.
Card number 1 is this cute 5″ x 5″ top folding green shaker card.
By simply cutting a circle in the middle of the wreath you can turn it into a window for your shaker cards. Inside are some gold mini Christmas tree shakers and it’s finished with a simple sentiment on top.

Card number 2 is this 5″ x 7″ red card using Mirrored cardstock.
Using mirrored card really shows off the detail in your die cuts and works perfectly with this wreath die. Framed with some mats and layers I then added a matching bow which I think finishes the card nicely and gives it a touch of elegance.

Card number 3 is this cute mini circle Easel card.
These cards are so easy to make and are a quick fun fold style. The circle shape frames the wreath die nicely and the huge bow detail is just lots of fun and holds the card up perfectly.

Card number 4 is this 6″ x 6″ silver and blue card.
The wreath die has been cut out of vellum, this adds a different texture to your cards and with it being transparent and framed against the silver mirrored card it has a really lovely effect. Everything is lifted up on foam adhesive and finished with a Merry Christmas sentiment from Hobbybase and a matching bow.

Card number 5 is this traditional 6″ x 6″ red, white and green card.
This one is my favourite!
The wreath die has been cut 3 times and stuck together to create a strong dimensional die cut. The ribbon has then been weaved in and out of all of the holes around the inside of the wreath and fastened with a pretty bow. By adding this easy detail It makes the wreath look like it’s hanging and more authentic.
This could easily be turned into a tree decoration and given as gifts. The card is then finished again with a nice sentiment and some Wink of Stella for some sparkle.

  1. Hello Sam
    Absolutely love these cards.
    I’ve been searching everywhere for this die and can’t find it. Hobbybase has one similar but it’s a snowflake thingy! I’ve tried loads of other sites aswell, no luck 😦
    Any ideas please?
