Hello everyone. Today I’m sharing a couple of cards featuring the Christmas Tree Cut Out die from Trinity Stamps. This is such a fun die cut and has endless possibilities for different looks. Today I’ve got two to share with you.
Today I took 2 white cardstock panels measuring 4×5.25 inches and cut the tree from the center of them. I discarded the pieces it cut out but you could totally save them for another set of cards too! Bonus!
For my first card, I cut 3 pieces of glitter cardstock to fit behind the openings. (Tip: When you don’t have the right color glitter cardstock but you have white glitter, just use a copic marker to color it. I used E35 for the trunk.) I added foam tape to the back of my Christmas tree cutout panel and positioned the glitter cardstock so the right colors were only showing in their respective openings. Then I glued the whole thing to a white card base.
I pulled out the new Simply Sentimental Happy stamps and dies to make my sentiment and glued it in place with liquid glue.
Totally clean and simple but so visually fabulous with all that glitter! Don’t you think!?!
For my second card I went monotone behind the cutout with distress oxide ink blended on a white panel. I blended evergreen bough and lucky clover today. I spritzed the panel with water and flicked gold watercolor on it too. Then I decided to also splatter the gold watercolor on my Christmas Tree cutout panel too.
I adhered these panels together the same way I did the others – with foam tape and then liquid glue to a white card base. Last, I die cut the Scripty Christmas shadow from vellum and words from red cardstock and adhered them together. Then I adhered them to the front of the tree cutout.
Like I said before, there are tons of ways to use this single die to get different looks. You could even make it a really cool shaker or inlay patterned paper on a single layer card! That would be gorgeous! See, I’m getting extra ideas just writing this blog post!
