Die Cuts: Creative Cuts and More

All of the die cuts are from Creative Cuts and More and all of my embellishments came from the Dollar Tree (or in the case of the fir branches my backyard LOL). It is so fun and easy to make decorations with die cuts, not to mention affordable! I used the sleigh box, the large matchbox and this accordion card insert all available from CC&M.


For the sleigh I embossed the sleigh using a stylus and a fiskars texture plate because the die cut was to big to go though a Cuttlebug, gotta love the old-school tools! I rubbed two styrofoam balls together to make the snow that is one the sleigh runners (faux flower soft technique 😉 and the scalloped ribbon is plain velvet wrapping ribbon I cut with scallop edge scissors, cheap and easy!


The matchbox was so cue as is but I dry embossed it, inked it, heat embossed it, wrapped it with ribbon and added a stamped monogram.

The luminary is just 3 die cut window card insides hooked together. I punched the edges to give it a bit of flair, inked the edges and dusted it with silver tinsel embossing powder.


wouldn’t you even say it glows… 😉


Remember that paper is flammable, I put a tea light in a canning jar to be safe inside the luminary and the music paper was an online freebie you can get from Linda’s blog, I printed it on vellum and trimmed it with an oval cutter.

Next hop over to Pam Smerkers blog to see her holiday inspiration, till next time happy crafting!
