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.
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.
Check out my full tutorial below showing you how I made these.
