Woodland Wishes Christmas Cards

 

Today’s cards use the Woodland Wishes Thin Cuts Bundle (Z4015)  with Oh Deer! (X7214B) paper packet for a couple of quick and easy Christmas cards.woodland-wishes-thin-cuts

I’ve only recently started playing with die cuts from an embossing machine.  Previously I just used  my Cricut.  Since CTMH came out with the Thin Cuts that coordinate with stamp sets – I thought I’d give them a try.  I love my Cricut – but for making just a couple of quick cuts to add to cards – these Thin Cuts are the way to go.  Just sandwich paper between the cutting boards & the die you want to use – roll it through (I use the Cuttlebug) your machine and voila!

This first card uses the B&T Duos for the tree – so you don’t even have to stamp it – isn’t it great you can cut the dies on White Daisy and add a stamped image – or use the patterned paper for a different look.  I used a piece of the B&T Duos that has a birch bark pattern as my landscape to give the impression of clouds, snow, whatever – I like that it’s not just plain white.

The deer & star are stamped in Desert Sand, the background in Whisper, the snowflakes in Sea Glass and the ‘Merry and Bright’ in Cranberry.  I added Bitty Sparkles to the snowflakes for some shine.

This is a very easy card to make.  With just 3 cuts of B&T Duos (5 1/2 X 4 1/4, 1 3/4 X 4 1/4, and 1 1/4 X 4 1/4).  I distressed the edges of the 2 smaller pieces with Desert Sand ink, stamped the Merry and Christmas using Juniper.  The Christmas banner is lifted slightly with Thin 3D tape and then I added a Clear Sparkle.

I hope you have enjoyed these cards – these are the last of my Christmas cards for this year.  I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!

Enjoy!
