STAMPlorations Christmas Release - CUTplorations Dies

It's the final day of the STAMPlorations Christmas release, and today we're showcasing the new dies. There are too many to show here, but you can see them all in the New Release section.

For my first card, I've used the Christmas Baubles #1 Layering Dies set.  I cut the base from a smooshy drippy Distress Ink background, and the detail from silver card.  I tied some yellow and blue cord together, then had to work out how to attach it to the top fold of my card.  Solution: threaded some fine thread through the knots and tied it inside the fold.  The sentiment is from Shery's Homespun Christmas set.


Another smooshy drippy Distress panel, this time using the Holiday Words Plate Die.  The black panel helps to accentuate the bright colours.


A more rustic one, using the Christmas Icons - Christmas Tree #1 die and some textured card, matted onto a kraft panel cut from the Crazy Double Running Stitch nesting die set.  A green twine bow and some Stickles on some of the bauble bumps, and it's done.
