Die Cuttin’ Divas Christmas

Can you believe it’s Christmas already?!?!  🙂  At least that’s what we’re getting ready for at Die Cuttin’ Divas this week with our Christmas challenge.  Since I’m still short of all the cards I’ll need, that’s what I went with.  Our sponsor this week is Avery Elle and I happen to have one of their dies, the Burst Die, so I thought it would be fitting to make my cards using it.  I also have a ton of beautiful clip art and wanted to use some of it for some cards this year.  This is what I came up with: I printed out the clip art (from a collection called Christmas Traditions) using Microsoft Word and used the aforementioned Burst die to cut it out.  I wanted to really focus on the images so I cut bold colored rings in Silhouette Design Studio and used the same paper to mat the images.  Because the die is square, I made the cards square also.  That left me precious little room at the bottom for a sentiment, but I remembered I had an old Close to My Heart stamp set from a card kit called Winterhaven (see my old post about it here) that contained a really thin, long sentiment. Perfect!  So now I have five more cards ready to go.

We hope to see what Christmas projects you’re working on this week at Die Cuttin’ Divas!
