Believe in the Magic of Christmas Silhouette card

***** Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all! May 2020 bring you good health, happiness, and lots of crafting!!! I hope we all have lots of crafty mojo all year long! But remember, if you feel like you lost the mojo, use the time to organize your craft supplies and you are bound to find it in the process! *****

On this Christmas Eve, I have a quick and easy card for you! I used my Silhouette to die cut this beautiful layered Snowflake cut file (#35260) by Snapdragon Snippets. I used a rectangle Simon Says Stamp Stitched die for the mat, which I also inked the edge of with Distress Oxide ink. As the focal is already quite large and covers most of the background, I didn’t want to cover even more of it with a sentiment. I opted to use vellum for the sentiment, which is from Inakindado’s Winter Silhouettes, heat embossed in Wow white embossing powder. The sentiment inside is from a Gina K Designs set called Blessed is the Season.

I love the simplicity of this card design and I have a million ideas for varieties of this design. Its also a great way to use up all those 6×6 paper pads we’re hoarding! Stay tuned, because in the new year I hope to have some tutorials for using up those 6×6 pads… so we can buy some more of them 😉

I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

    • Oh I agree! I spend a small fortune on dies, but if you want to cut multiples, you are cranking them through all day. With my Silhouette, I can fill the mat, click start, and walk away to do other parts of the cards. Need more? Add another piece of paper, click start, and boom. Mass production at its finest! Santa brought me the Cameo 4 for Christmas, so I can accomplish even more in just one go 😁😍 Thank you for your kind words!
