For today’s Made Easy video, we’re going to show you how to create holiday cards using our Christmas Radial Border Dies and a selection of pretty papers. This set of dies is perfect for making holiday cards! They can take a pretty bite out of your paper and create decorative diecuts to use on your paper crafts. We have a special price on these dies on our website all week long, and you can get them here: https://annagriffin.com/product/christmas-radial-border-dies/
Come make these cards with us!
When making Christmas cards, one way to make them special is to choose contrasting papers. We love to combine glitter cardstock https://annagriffin.com/product/christmas-green-glitter-cardstock/ along with our buttery matte foil cardstock when using these dies. Start off by cutting the green glitter paper with the decorative die and the shadow layer out of the matte foil.
Leave the excess paper attached to your card layer, and take the matte foil layer and adhere under the decorative layer.
Mount the glitter layer to the front of a card. Add decorative embellishments and a sentiment to complete the look.
Another way to use these dies is to create a faux gatefold.
Cut 2 shadow layers with the champagne glitter cardstock. Cut 2 decorative layers with the red matte foil cardstock.
Add foam adhesive to the back of your diecuts.
Overlap your champagne shadow layers with the decorative edge of the shadow layers facing in.
Add the decorative layers on top of the shadow layers.
Add a sentiment, embellishments and a bow to finish your holiday card.
