Every year, my list of Christmas cards to make needs to include a few retro-themed designs. I’ve always been a fan of the aluminum trees and tinsel and festive starbursts of the 1950s. I can always count on Tim Holtz to come out with something that fits the bill. Today’s project was made with the versatile Ornamental Birds die set from Sizzix/Tim Holtz.
A shiny rainbow to welcome a new bundle of joy is the theme of my project today. I love all the options you have with Avery Elle’s Rainbows stamp set and matching die set for making colorful greetings.
Sending a card for no reason is one of the best ways to reach out to friends and family. This “groovy” greeting was easy to make using the dies from the Flowers & Fence stamp and die set from Sizzix/Stephanie Barnard.
For some reason, with all the card making I do, I can never seem to have enough baby cards on hand. Or I have some for just a girl or just a boy. Today’s project, will help bulk up your baby card collection with an easy design and a few quick swipes of the die cutting machine.
Background dies are perfect for full sized cards as added texture and an additional layer. But why not add them to gift tags for the same effect? For today’s card, I’m using the versatile Hero Arts Fancy Flower Garden background die to create some easy and elegant birthday gift tags.
