Partial Die Cut Holly

Hi there

In this post I'm sharing a card I made at the Happy Little Stampers Craft Retreat last month (yes, I made lots while I was away! lol)

One of the techniques we were working with was partial die cutting and I had taken a few stamp sets with me which had co-ordinating dies, perfect for this technique.

I think I was being a bit adventurous when I chose this die for a technique I hadn't had much practice with!  It was certainly fiddly and took a bit of planning trying to figure out the measurements for the fold in the card base so that it would fit in a standard C6 envelope!  The top of the die cut needs to be placed where you would normally place the fold.  Lets just say, lots of trimming was involved.  The front of the card was finished off by heating embossing a sentiment in gold and adding some double score lines.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Christmas Poinsettia (and co-ordinating die); Happy Little Stampers - Christmas Joy
  • Ink: Altenew - Moss; VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Gold Rich
