Be Merry Holiday Card



Sorry to bounce from Halloween (yesterday’s post) to Christmas, but…that’s the way the card projects go in the fall!

After playing with paint chips cut on the diagonal, I decided to take the plunge on the Taylored Expressions Diagonal Stripes Cutting Plate (my first cutting plate EVER). SO, SO WORTH THE PLUNGE! I cut one out of Pop-Tone Sour Apple, then used scraps of red and green to cut other specific stripes.

Supplies: Stamp – Essentials by Ellen, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop-Tone Sour Apple, Stampin’ Up! Garden Green, Real Red, ink – VersaMark, dies – Spellbinders (circles), Taylored Expressions (diagonal stripes cutting plate), enamel dots – Stampin’ Up!, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Gold Glory, gold cord – PaperMart.

  1. Christmas has come early! Oh how I love this die. Diagonal stripes are a favourite of mine. Your card shows it off beautifully! I am seeing candy canes, peppermint, and CLASSY!
