Today I want to show you how to organize your die cuts to make Christmas cards in minutes! Check it out in my ultra quick video.
How would you answer these questions?
- Are you like me and have lots of dies and stamp bundles?
- Do you have spare die cuts floating around your craft space looking for a home?
- Are you ever in need of a handmade card super duper fast?
If you answered an emphatic YES to any of those, this blog post and video is for you!
This card is all about the dies! One simple die, enhanced with a bright red bow and greeting make a great Christmas card.
It was really quick to put together with dies I had pre-cut when I was making another project months ago!
I’ll show you in under TWO minutes how you store your die cuts so you can pull them out at the drop of a hat!

I used this exact tip on this card too.
Now let’s take a closer look at today’s classic Christmas card.
1. Use Your Imagination!
I was thinking mistletoe as I was making this card. What do you think? Does it bring the “pucker up plant” to mind with its pearls and lighter green (Pear Pizzazz)?
2. Add Some Contrast
Real Red and Pear Pizzazz are an awesome colour combination especially for the holidays. With a bright red braided bow and the larger greeting from the Perfectly Plaid set, the card is perfectly balanced.
2. Give It Some Texture
Adding an embossed background adds so much to a card. The Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder is one of my favourites from the Annual Catalogue.
You can’t go wrong with this folder; it gives a classy finish to any design. TIP: Stamp your greeting BEFORE running it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

Did you get a chance to take a peek at the video? I appreciate you taking the time to watch!
I do love the lighter Pear Pizzazz on this card rather than the Old Olive. What about you?
