Falloween Gift Card Dies- Made Easy

Hello crafters,

It’s officially autumn, and we can’t help but fall in love with the Falloween Gift Card Dies. This set of 7 dies creates the perfect gift card holder for fall projects, a hot cup of coffee or a gift for a friend. Today we are going to make the cute owl gift card with a few fun techniques! We are going to underlay, inlay and overlay to create a multi-tonal owl using the Luxury Fall Matte Foil Cardstock, Black Matte and Shiny Foil Cardstock and Matte Gold Cardstock. We will also use fall and Halloween embellishments to decorate. If you don’t have the Falloween Gift Card Dies, you can get them on sale this week on our website.

Let’s get started!

First, cut a piece of shiny black cardstock with the owl die.

We duplexed two gold shadow layers together so that the front and back of your owl is matte gold foil.

Use the die to to trace the area to underlay. You can use the die or the diecut to cut the orange matte foil to size.

We used glue to attach.
