This set of Iconic Christmas Dies from Concord & 9TH are such fun to use! They feature most of the ‘iconic’ symbols of Christmas – you get to figure out how to use them. Will you use patterned paper, or solid cardstock? Maybe you’ll die cut some watercolour paper, and do some painting! However you like to create, the important part is the fun. I’ve used a combination of solid cardstock, foil paper and patterned paper.
Creating this slimline cards made lots of room to show off some of the fun die images!
To create the slimline insert with the ‘windows’, first use the Picket Fence Studios Slimline Die Cutting System die, with your Big Shot and a piece of red cardstock. Attach this to a light green layer, and then to a dark green card base. Now, use the Iconic Christmas Dies in the shape of the star, Candy Cane, Christmas Tree, Stocking and Snowflake. For the Candy Cane, use white for the base, and red foil for the striped overlay. The Tree is die cut from green glimmer paper in the American Craft Holiday pack. Patterned paper for the Stocking and Ornament are from the same paper pack. The red and gold foil are from the Concord & 9th Neutrals Foil Paper Pack. Pixie Dust Glimmer Paper from Lawn Fawn is used for the snowflakes.
Once you have all the pieces die cut & layered together, you can start arranging them in the 3 windows. Next, add some Clear Quartz Solid sequins from Gina K to the card front. Stamp the sentiments from the Poppystamps Christmas Quotes set in Versamark ink. Next, cover the sentiments in WOW Red Glitter embossing powder, and then set with a heat tool. Attach the sentiment strips and die cut images using foam squares or tape.
