Four Easy Christmas Cards With Cottage Cutz Dies

Happy Saturday crafty Friends!
Today I am sharing over on the CottageCutz.com blog. For my project today, I am sharing four super easy Christmas themed cards I created with a die from the FABULOUS Christmas release!

I made four easy cards with the same die.  3 are 4.25 x 5.5 and one is larger at 5x7. Here is a look at all four of them.
First up is the large 5 x 7 card. It is horizontal top fold. To make this card, I cut the die image out of some white felt. I layered that onto a white mat and then used a second piece of my background paper for the larger mat. I used some foam tape on the back of the top panel to give it just a little lift. The background images on all of these cards are ones I created and printed with my color laser printer.

Here's a closer look at the die cut image cut from the felt. 
Next up is the card using a similar background image I created. I then cut the die cut from some white glittered foam.

Here's a closer look at the die cut image. It cut very nicely. I love the way it gives the die cut dimension, without having to layer 3 or 4 layers of paper together to get the same lift and look.

Next up, I created this pretty background image as well. For this one, I die cut the image out of some black glittered foam. 

Here is a close up of this one. I love how in one pass, the die cut cuts the foam. And with it already glittered it is quickly done and doesn't shed. Fast and easy with great results!

For my last one, I created the background image as well. I then cut the die cut out of some gold glitter paper. I happened to have some on hand that matched the specks of gold in the image.

Here is a closer look at the gold glitter die cut. I layered this one onto some coordinating dark teal cardstock. I think this one is my favorite. But they are all pretty in their own way! So which one do you like the best? 

Here is one last look at all four of them together. You could literally crank this out very quickly with great results!

Well that about covers it for today. Until the next time, have a wonderfully craft-die day!
