Hi Bloggers.

The day has arrived! I am so excited to be launching the new Paper Cuts Festive Collection on Hochanda today at 6pm. The dies are already proving to be very popular – so popular, in fact, that there is no stock of the Edger dies left at Creative  Expressions!

I’ve used one of the Edger dies on this card –

Holly Berry Edger Caught in Crystal

For my background, I’ve used the Caught in Crystal Technique with CS Colourful Crystal Tints and CS Glitterbitz. To re-cap, I added drops of CS Colourful Crystal Tints in Lime Peridot, Green Emerald and Yellow Citrine to a piece of Acetate. I sprinkled Sea Green and Hunter Green CS Glitterbitz over. I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue paper, opened it up and popped it on top of the tints. I pressed it down using a piece of Kitchen Roll and put aside to dry – an hour or so.

I cut the Paper Cuts Holly Berry Edger into 2 pieces of Coconut White Card. I cut a frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles Set B. I added it to my Edger die cut using CE Mounting Cushion. I then added glue to back of my die cuts and popped onto my Caught in Crystal Background.

I trimmed away any excess background and then matted onto Coconut White and Brunswick Green Card.

I completed my card by cutting the sentiment from the Paper Cuts Noel Tree Die Set out of Coconut White Card and gluing it into place.

You could easily do this as a batch make – have a background making session, a die cutting session and then a construction session. I think this card has a real Wow! Factor.
