A Thinlets Christmas
One of the new products in the Seasonal Catalogue to be released on the 1st September, is the Expressions Thinlets Dies on page 36. This set of dies cuts three words from your cardstock – Merry, Love and Thankful. The font is gorgeous and they look so sweet. A little tip for you is to layer waxed lunch wrap on top of the card you are cutting and then the die. Once cut you can also poke through the little holes on the back of the die to help release the words.
Anyway here is a card I made using the Expressions Thinlets Dies. I embossed Whisper White card using the Stylish Strips Embossing Folder (also in the new Seasonal Catalogue page 22) and attached it to scored and folded Real Red card. I attached a strip of the Real Red Designer Series Paper from the Perfect Polka Dots Designer Series to Silver Glimmer Paper and then to the card front. I cut the word “Merry” from Real Red card and attached it to Whisper White card and then added a Real Red mat. Another tip for you – try using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to attach the thinlets. You just press the word onto the sheet, lift up and it is ready to attach and the sheet can be used until all the adhesive is gone. I inked Christmas from the Sweet Essentials stamp set using a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker, stamped onto scrap Whisper White card and punched it using the Decorative Label Punch. I added a Real Red Decorative Label behind the greeting and then attached the greeting to the right hand side of the “Merry” panel. This whole piece is attached to the card front using dimensionals.
Inside the card I added another strip of the Real Red DSP/Silver Glimmer Paper to the lower edge of Whisper White card. I used a Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to ink the words “and a happy new year” from the Christmas stamp in the Delightful Dozen stamp set and stamped it onto the Whisper White card.
I am quite delighted with the way this has turned out. What do you think?
Bye for now, Kris.
