The new Poppystamps dies are amazing! For this post, I wanted to showcase the versatility of the Merry Dots die new from Poppystamps.
These three cards, each use the Merry Dots die, in different positions.
The cards are each 3" x 3" and were designed to be used as in lieu of a tag to accompany a holiday gift. Each card uses the Poppystamps cling stamp "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas" stamped inside on a white piece of cardstock.
To create the cards measure a piece of cardstock to 6" long and 3" wide.
Score lengthwise at the 3" mark.
Next determine where you want the fold. The deer and the candle cards each have the fold at the top. The green sleigh card has the fold on the left. With the card in an unfolded position the Poppystamps Merry Dots die and run it through your cutting machine.
If you wish to have a color showing through (deer card) then cut a different color of cardstock and adhere to the inside of the card. Then chose a color for the inside to stamp your greeting.
Now comes the fun --decorate the outside of your card. The hardest part is choosing from all the exciting new Poppystamps dies. What will you create?
Supplies I used for these cards:
Merry Dots [#937]
Birthday Candles [#909]
Woodland Fawn [#945]
Santa's Magic Sleigh [#943]
Small Blooming Poinsettia [#902]
Little Christmas Cling Stamp [CS305B]
Adhesive- I used a liquid glue and glue pen for these cards.
Red Glitter Glue - For the candle card, I cut two sets of candles and cut the tips off to make the yellow look like a flame. Then I applied a red glitter glue to make it look more like a flickering candle.
Rhinestones - added a bit of bling to the center of the poinsettias on the sleigh and deer card.
Ink - for stamping the greeting inside of the card.
