Gorgeous Garden Dies Grab the Holiday Spotlight

Create a Christmas Card with the Gorgeous Garden Dies from Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

The Gorgeous Garden Dies have been a “go to” for texture, detail and a big dose of WOW! Today’s Christmas card shows how beautifully this floral (reminds me of an amaryllis) works as a Christmas card when using traditional holiday colors.

WHAT I LOVE ! I probably use Stampin’ Dimensionals on 99% of the cards I create. However, the magic of this die cut is that there are wide enough areas to add dimensionals underneath. It die cut details can “float” above the card base for a stunning boost in texture.

  • Shaded Spruce Card Stock:
    • Card Base – 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2

Begin by burnishing the fold of the Shaded Spruce card base with a Bone Folder.

Center the Gorgeous Garden die onto the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of Real Red card stock, then crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard).
