Need a last minute Christmas card idea? I'm a slow color-er, so when I need to whip up a card I like to stick to die cutting. I used a floral Pink & Main background die for this traditional colored card!
This card is easy to make, but I dressed it up with some glitter and gems. These are steps you could skip if you're in a hurry or want to make a bunch of these cards! The Fancy Floral Cover Die was released earlier this year, but it's one of my favorite background dies from Pink & Main! It's versatile enough to be used for sympathy, birthday, or even Holiday cards! I die cut the Fancy Floral Cover Die four times from heavy weight cardstock and glued them together so that there would be some dimension on my card.
You could add this die cut panel onto any color of cardstock you want - I went with classic red. I wanted it to have something extra, so I sprayed my red cardstock with glitter spray before I added the Fancy Floral Cover die-cuts on top.
I love a chunky sentiment die and I reach for the Bold Christmas Die all the time! It's chunky and scripty and just perfect! I cut it from green cardstock and added it to vellum and then fussy cut around the vellum. The green cardstock sentiment on its own got lost against the background. Putting a layer of vellum behind it helps it to stand out.
I embellished with some gems around the Fancy Floral Cover background and that completes my card! I hope this inspires you to get creative with your die cut backgrounds! See you soon!
