Hello my crafty friends, so happy you are back on my blog. Today I’am showing you two Christmas Cards using the positive and the negativ from my die cuts. So a 2 for 1 card.
I know Christmas is over but I had this amazing background die from Waffleflower and I really wanted to use it. I also used this cards for the WaffleFlower Garden Facebook Challenge, which you should check.
So enough said, lets get started with the step by step for both cards.
First I want to tell you all the products I have used for this project, that’s make it easier and you can just click on the product so you will be directly connect to the website:
Different kind of cardstock from different companies like (The Stamp Market / Lawn Fawn / Faltkarten.com)
I started by creating the background of the card. First I used the the Waffle Flower Horizontal Stripes Die to cut all the different color strips. I have to admit that I really love to use stripes and I get inspire a lot by the cards from Laura Bassen I really love her cards soo much.
Then I did adhere all the stripes in rainbow order on a piece of white cardstock using my adhesive runner. After I had all the stripes glued down I used the Waffle Flower Christmas Tree Panel die and run it through my die cut machine. That way I had a perfect cut stripe panel with all the little trees. I tried to keep all the little trees on the die, that way I could use them for my second card.
I did cut down a piece of gold cardstock to the same size as my stripe panel and just adhere it on the back of it. So now I had a lot of golden trees locking through my rainbow panel. I love how it shines through the trees.
Last but not least I heat embossed the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock in white and used one of the Waffle Flower Fram dies to have a perfect frame for my sentiment. I adhered all together on a black cardstock base and thats it.
For my second card I used the little trees that I still had stucked on my die.
To get them on my card panel I did cut a piece of craft cardstock down to 5 1/2 and 4 Then I added some liquid glue on each tree and just pushed my card panel right onto it. I did just turn the die around and pushed all the little trees onto my card panel. That way I got all the tress straight and it is faster then to glue each tree separate.
For the sentiment I did the same as on my first card, heat emboss this time in gold onto a piece of black cardstock and die cut using the Waffle Flower Frames Die.
And thats it, I had so much fun using this amazing Christmas Tree Panel die. I got two cards I can send out on Christmas already this year.
I hope you like both of the cards and I would be so happy if you could leave a comment just below.
