Hi again! It’s Annie, and I’m back with fun Christmas card made with some of the gorgeous red, white, and green cardstocks available at the CutCardStock store.
I’ve chosen to use some of the Stardream Metallic cardstocks (“Fairway” and “Jupiter“) today to add some festive shimmer to my card. These are heavyweight cardstocks, so they are perfect for creating both cardbases and sturdy embellishments.
Start by die-cutting the layers of your card. I used my Silhouette CAMEO to cut these, but there are several dies available like this for manual cutting machines as well. My final card size is 4.25″ x 5.5″ (standard A2 size). The base layer is cut from Stardream Metallic Jupiter, while the layered label shape is cut from Stardream Metallic Fairway and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.
Stamp your image onto the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White label shape using a dye ink that is compatible with alcohol-based markers. Color your images using the alcohol markers of your choice (Neenah Classic Crest Solar White is a great cardstock for blending using alcohol markers).
Fold your card base on the scored lines to determine the best placement for your sentiment. Stamp the sentiment on the inside of your card using Versamark ink, cover with white embossing powder, and heat-set it with your heat tool.
Adhere the patterned paper panels to your cardbase using tape runner, and then pop your colored image up on the front using foam tabs for a little added dimension.
Adhere your second colored image to the inside of the card using tape runner.
I hope you enjoyed this project and thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to visit the CutCardStock store to purchase any of the supplies showcased today and remember that red, white, and green cardstocks are on sale this month!

so cute, but when you die cut the red card part, how does it stay connected to the card?
Thanks Patricia! These types of dies create both cut lines and score lines. If you click on the picture of the cut pieces, it will enlarge it and you can see that the center swinging piece is still connected to the card base at the top and the bottom (the shape is only partially cut out). When you fold the card on the score lines (into a \”Z\” shape) it pops that center part out, but it remains connected. Hope that makes sense…someone very clever developed those type of dies!
