Group Post Samples

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. We are sampling DT cards for the next several Mondays using dies from the Christmas Part 2 release.

There are 34 new designs in this release. This release has something for everyone. So if you prefer a more religious tone to your cards- we have you covered. If you like a more whimsical design featuring Santa, reindeer, gnomes, moose or even a hot chocolate theme you will find some really cute dies.

We thought you might like to have some new and creative ideas for your Christmas cards using the Part 2 dies. So let's get started with the cards for today.

Sample 1: Our first sample for today is from Anja Zurga. She used the Nativity w/Donkey die to create this beautiful card that represents the meaning of Christmas. The nighttime sky was created by cutting a circle and coloring it with distress oxide inks, and for the stars she sprinkled a mixture of perfect pearls and water. It gives the appearance of looking out from the stable into the night sky.  To give the die cuts a bit more dimension, she popped them up on brown foam.

Sample 2: Our next sample is from Pam MacKay. She used the Christmas Cardinal die to create her card.  It's a classic style Christmas card that incorporates the cardinal, plaid and doily. The oval doily gives it such a retro vibe and for added interest she raised the cardinal off the background to give it a bit of dimension. If you haven't started on your cards as yet, this one would be easy to mass produce and the die is available. 
Sample 3: Our last sample for today is from Sukie Dhillon. She used the Santa Workshop die to create this whimsical card. The bright and cheery die cuts pop against the embossed snowflake background.  The snow mound was perfect for anchoring the sentiment pole.  This card is perfect to tuck in with a toy gift for the special kiddo in your life.
Well, that's our samples for today. I hope the team has given you some fresh ideas on ways to use these dies.
