Hello friends. Getting in the holiday mood? Today I am presenting a fun die-cut layered card mounted on a strip background for CutCardStock. These striped backgrounds are showing up all over Instagram. I had wanted to use the wagon die from Hero Arts for some time. This was a perfect excuse!

Create the Striped Background
Isn’t it festive? Begin by cutting colored cardstock strips in various widths using Basis Dark Red, Cougar 80 lb. White Cardstock, Pop-Tone Jelly Bean, and Wagon Red Cardstock. Attach a 3-inch piece of double-sided tape on a piece of white cardstock 5.5 inches wide and at least 4 inches tall. Line up and attach the strips in random order. Use the grid on your mat if you have one to line them up.
Cut all the additional pieces
Cut the wagon and gift pieces out from the same cardstocks. Use Royal Sundance Kraft Fiber paper for the rails, Pop-Tone Black Licorice for the wheels, and Stardream Metallic Neptune for the handle. Stamp the rails with brown ink and a stamp resembling wood grain.
Assemble the Card
Choose a shaped die to cut the striped piece with. The oval shape fits nicely! Mount the oval on the front of an A2 card base, and layer all the wagon and gift pieces on top.
Add the holiday sentiment of your choosing. The sentiment strip in the example is from an Ideology Quote Book, topped with Nuvo Glaze.
Are you getting ready for the holidays? I hope you enjoyed this die-cut layered card. Once the pieces are die-cut, this is a quick and easy card to assemble. It would be easy to mass-produce these!
