Check out my Happy Holidays Silver Shimmer Card. It is Friday! Happy Fri-YAY everyone! What does that mean is for the blog? – Tips, Tricks, and Techniques. Today I have a Tip to show you using the Christmas Cheer Dies. This week I focused on the Words of Cheer Bundle from the July–December 2021 Mini Catalog.
The picture above shows the Happy Holidays Shimmer card. I use the reverse cut-outs from die-cutting for a card that I will showcase in tomorrow’s blog post. It will show a card that I made using the happy words cut from these dies. On my Facebook Live Session, Saturday at 4 pm EST you can see me make that card live. Check below for close-ups of the Holiday Silver Shimmer card.
I love all the silver layers on this card. Silver, I think, is my favorite metallic color.
Now, I will show you the tip I used, and how to make this card as a final outcome. Let’s begin.
My tip today is when die cutting the words from the Words of Cheer Bundle dies, cut a bunch of them in a row one right after the other. You can then use this on a card for a fun result.
- When you cut all these words out on a long strip of cardstock, you will be left with a few things. One of those will be the inside of the letters and the other will be the die-cut words.
- Save the small insides of the letters. You will use them as you will see later.
- Save the die-cut words as well. This is obvious, of couse. You can use them on another card.
- Glue down the strip of cardstock that you used to die-cut the happy words from. Then, start to apply the insides to the letters.
- I started from the top and inserted the middle of the A, then moved to the middle of the P’s, and finally ended with the inside of the Y.
- Continue to do this to all of the words you have attached onto your card background.
The picture above shows what you are left with. You have attached the die-cut strip to your card and inserted all your letter inside with adhesive to you card base.
- The last step is to finish your card with a colorful version of the Happy die-cut.
- I attached silver “berries” to the Happy die-cut using my Take Your Pick Tool.
- Using the edge pieces of my Stampin’ Dimensionals, I glued them to the back. That way the word Happy would be raised up as the focal piece on my Happy Holidays Silver Shimmer Card.
I love the end result – a Happy Holidays Silver Shimmer Card! Now try this Tip on your next project, comment below, and tell me what you made and also what you think of this project. Please watch tomorrow on my Facebook Live Session, as I demonstrate a card that I use the actual white “happy’s” that I die-cut.
