CAS-ual Fridays Holiday Release Day 4 - Christmas and Hanukkah Word Dies!



Welcome to Day 4 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Holiday Release!  Today we're playing with the Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas Fri-Dies and here's how I was inspired:
 

I wanted to make a card where both word dies could be used.  So I decided some pretty blues rather than the traditional red and green for Christmas and of course some pretty snowflakes and why not a little plaid?  I mean... when is plaid NOT just right??


So I started with a pretty blue plaid... well... two!  And then I cut the Scallop Tags Fri-Dies from white paper and used an embossing folder to add some texture.  I layered it with some foam tape to add some dimension.


Then I cut the Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah from glitter paper once and white cardstock twice.  I stacked the sentiments together for more dimension... I love doing this because they are kind of like chipboard and I think it really let's the word die cut stand out even more!  I adhered them across the tag with some liquid glass.


Then I cut a bunch of snowflakes using the Funky Flakes Fri-Dies from glitter paper and layered these two...


... and scattered the rest... then just a few sequins scattered and I had two cards done!  


I love that these cards can easily be mass produced and just by varying the background paper a bit they can all be different!


You could save time and not stack your sentiments and put them together even faster!
