This year I decided I wanted to make holiday cards that were somewhat unique and fun. Glitter was still on my mind from last week’s project, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to be cleaning up more errant glitter, so I decided to try die cutting glitter scrapbook card stock. With my 40% off coupon in hand, I walked into my local big box craft store and found a package of their branded glitter card stock.
- 12” X 12” Glitter Card Stock
- Spellbinders Metal Dies
- 2013 Holiday Trees
- Layered Poinsettia
- Crafter’s Companion Gemini Die Cutting & Embossing Machine
- AdTech Permanent Crafter’s Tape
- White Card Stock and Envelopes (I used 5” X 6.5 cards)
- Color Printer
- Print your messages on one or both sides of card stock. (I chose to use my printer because I am making many cards but you can hand letter your cards if you’re more comfortable doing that.)
- Die cut two sizes of poinsettia leaves out of red card stock.
- Die cut berries from yellow card stock.
- Die cut two sizes of holiday trees from blue card stock.
- Apply Crafter’s Tape to the back of the largest set poinsettia leaves and adhere to front of card. Continue layering with second set of leaves and finally one of the yellow berries.
- Finally, apply Crafter’s tape to back of each tree and adhere to inside of card.
