CAS Die Cut Christmas

PP570 – A Theme Challenge from Jaydee

For this challenge I decided to keep the card very simple and except for the sentiment, I used dies. The sentiment is from A divinity Designs set called Beary Christmas, the village is from Cottage Cutz and is one I’ve used a fair amount since its purchase and the mountains were almost an accident but were cut with a Hero Arts set I’ve had for about a year. While working on another project I used the Hero Arts dies to cut mountains along with some trees and a cabin and the piece on this card was leftover similar to a fall out would be. I also had 2 navy card bases ready on my desk and I set this offcut on top of one of them while continuing with the other project. Once that was finished I realized that the offcut looked interesting on the navy base so I trimmed it a little to make it look tidier and added it. Then I die cut several of the village out of the same white CS and glued them together to give them some dimension. I added this layer to the card base under the mountains. After stamping the sentiment I contemplated adding some embellishments but decided against it. I rather like the starkness and simplicity of this card and hope you do too.

  1. Your navy and white is so very striking. The little village die cuts are set off so nicely with your mountain range behind them. I agree no embellishments needed.

  4. Johanna your pretty diecut against the mountain backdrop reminds me of an alpine village – perfect for a winter wonderland scene. Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
