Noel Card


I have seen this style of card before with assorted word die cuts. When I saw the decorative Noel die from Cheery Lynn Designs, I knew I had to give this "Floating Word" card design a try!

I made the base of the card from Kraft card stock. I then matted with a layer of dark brown card stock and snowflake decorative paper. I cut the Noel die out of Kraft and measured the die cut vertically (from the top of the N to the bottom of the O). That measurement is the complete section that you will remove from the front of the card (see above picture for visual).

As you can see from the above picture: I cut three strips of medium weight acetate to give the die cut strength but also to attach the three sections together. The acetate runs diagonally behind the N and vertically behind the E and L. The acetate is sandwiched between the Kraft and dark brown card stock.

I created my Poinsettia using the Poinsettia Strip die. I inked and embossed the petals with the Burlap Embossing Plate. I then inked the top of each petal with brown ink to highlight the embossed impression.

Dies Used:
Poinsettia Strip - B324

Holly Leaves - B183
