So Let the HOP Begin!
I have been working on my christmas cards since July, but I am nowhere near finished which was good because I absolutely fell in love with the new holiday release from Die-namites! For today’s card I am using the Pine Wreath die. I love the intricate details of the pine, something I definitely could not achieve with a digital cut or punch.
I began by cutting 6 shapes out of two different colors
I started with the full cut on the bottom and layered pieces of the die that I had cut apart on top filling in the empty spaces to add more fullness to the die. I used a Zig ball point tip glue pen. I chose this adhesive because its not too messy but easy to get into fine lines and not dry too fast.
After layering all the greenery I made another cut out of red cardstock and cut the birds from the shape.
I attached them using the same glue on top of the green cut that I started with.
I glued the wreath to a white card (A2) and rounded the corners of the card. I attached some red gem dots (Recollections from Michaels) to make the berries around the wreath.
Then I added some silver polka-dot washi tape around a stamped sentiment on the bottom. It was super simple but I love the results!
