Peek-a-Boo Die Cutting

Hello! Today I have a card that uses a technique I call peek-a-boo die cutting. I don't know if that's what it's really called, but that's what I think of when I see this technique! 

I stamped the three layers of the tree from the Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp set in green inks along with the top layer with white embossing in the middle of my card. Then I used the Merry die from Concord & 9th in the center of the tree. I made sure to keep every teeny tiny piece of paper - even the tiny insides of the "e" and "r's". I also die cut the sentiment from red cardstock three times. I stacked the dies together and glued the "merry" right into place where I had originally die cut from.

See how the sentiment is like a peek-a-boo?! I love this technique! It's so simple, but I love that pop of color!

I'm entering this card into the a2zscrapbooking challenge - winter! Click the picture below for more info!

  2. I love the way you took a cross section of the tree as part of the sentiment. It makes for a cool modern feel. So glad you joined us at A2Z Scrapbooking.
