We will be sharing projects featuring dies from the Fall and Winter new release on the Cheery Lynn Designs Blog from now through August 3rd in four parts. I hope you’ll join us each day. We will be beginning with Christmas and Winter dies and then showcasing Halloween, Fall & Thanksgiving and then we will finish off with a new die for a New Year!
I have to admit that I always have a hard time making Christmas cards in July when it’s 95 degrees outside! I decided to ease my way into things by starting with a non-traditional color scheme.
This Whimsical Christmas die set made me think of Dr. Seuss, so I thought the non-traditional colors would be perfect and I really like the way this turned out.
I cut all of my dies in multiple colors and I was very careful to retain all of the pieces (positive and negative) when I removed the paper from the die. I started with a silver base for my stockings and then carefully pieced each one together with the colors I wanted. I then added it to my background square which was created by cutting a white Lattice piece and adhering it to white cardstock. I thought a solid white background was too plain, so the white on white lattice was just right.
For the presents, I also cut the die in multiple colors. I pieced each present individually in the colors I wanted and then lined them up along the bottom of the card panel, slightly overlapping them.
I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment in pink and purple and layered the pieces, slightly offsetting to allow for a shadow effect.
