My card today is a quick and easy one to make using the Picture This Dies.  There are two dies included in this set, one that cuts out stitched circles and the other one cuts out stitched rectangles (see the image of the dies below my card). Today’s card was made using the die that cuts out rectangular stitched shapes. You can see previous cards I’ve made using the other die here and here. I also used Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper and the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder

Stampin Up Picture This Dies


I started with a piece of Soft Succulent cardstock and then added a layer of Basic White cardstock that I embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  I reach for this embossing folder over and over again because it has such a nice subtle effect. 


Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper


There are two different ways to cut out the shapes using the dies.  You can cut them out using a piece of paper that measures approximately 4-3/4″ x 3-3/4″. This will give you three pieces and you can save some of the extras for another project.  I decided not to do that and for the sentiment, I placed a small piece of Basic White cardstock in the center of the die and then did that same thing with the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Tidings of Christmas


I stamped the sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink and the stamp set, Pansy Patch onto the Basic White rectangle.  Then, I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of each rectangle and placed them on the front of the card. If you’ve never used Stampin’ Dimensionals, they make a huge difference.  Just that little bit of dimension takes your card to a whole new level! To complete my card, I added three Matte Decorative Dots below the sentiment and added a layer of Basic White to the inside.  Imagine all the possibilities with this design!
