More Repeat Die Cutting with a Negative Die featuring Simon Says Stamp’s Snowflake Tree

Hello everyone! I have a super sweet, rainbow Christmas card featuring a beautiful negative cutting die, Simon Says Stamp's Snowflake Tree. The die cuts are highlighted with lots of glitter for a fun and unusual holiday card!

I started off with a panel of Nina Classic Crest 110 pound card stock. The panel was trimmed down to 8” x 3” and die cut five times with the snowflake tree die. I used a ruler to draw a light pencil line along the bottom of the panel to align the die cuts and erased it when I was done. When the trees are die cut, they produce several snowflakes which were retained to use on the background. Several pieces of glitter card stock in red, yellow, teal green, blue and purple were trimmed into small rectangles and adhered to the back of each Christmas tree.

The panel was mounted on black card stock that was cut with the largest die from Pinkfresh Studio’s Slim Stitched Rectangles and then adhered to a card base measuring 8 3/4 x 3 3/4".

Simon Says Stamp’s Slimline Christmas is a fun word die that produces an outline frame and individual letters. It was used to cut white sheet foam. I wanted the foam to stay intact so I could use it as a pattern to create the multicoloured, Christmas sentiment. Scotch tape was used to keep the foam die cuts tight to one another. White card stock was cut and the outline frame was adhered to the foam die cut. The letters were die cut from the five glitter card stock colours used previously and cut in the same colour order as the trees. The letters were adhered to the foam die cut and the sentiment positioned on the card front. The secondary sentiment, Simon says stay Tiny Words Christmas, was stamped with black ink on white card stock. One of the dies from Sentiment Labels was used to cut the strip which was foam mounted.
