A Scripty Merry Christmas - featuring The Stamp Market - My Fresh Perspective

Holiday crafting is in FULL swing over here in my little corner of the blog world, and today I’ve got a fun and easy card to share. It’s not snowing yet in Vancouver, and my fingers are crossed tight that it won’t for a while because this girl is NOT a fan of winter. However, I do really like snowflake designs on cards, and I’m also on a huge vellum kick. On today’s card you’ll get both, plus a fun new holiday die.

For this design, I pulled out an older snowflake die from my stash, which is actually part of a 2-piece set intended for making tags. I used the thinner part here, as well as The Stamp Market Scripty Merry die. This is a 2-piece die that includes both the shadow and thin script – truly, my favourite kind of word die!

To begin, I die cut several snowflakes from 80lb white cardstock backed with a thin double-sided adhesive sheet. This made it really quick and easy to adhere them to my vellum card panel. (Also, I would normally choose 110lb cardstock but in this case, because the die was quite intricate, I opted for the 80lb to avoid any tearing.)

After arranging my snowflakes and trimming the sides, I die cut the shadow part of the Scripty Merry die from Tropic Teal, Fresh Pink and Fuschia Color Crush cardstock. Then for the thin script, I used Diamond Glitter cardstock. To be honest, I was skeptical about this purchase at first because in the past, I have NOT had great luck with glitter cardstock. Sometimes the sheets are too thick and need to be run through a die cutting machine many times with a shim, and still, the cut wasn’t clean. However, this was my first time putting Diamond Glitter cardstock to the test, and I was blown away – in a great way! With just a single run through my die cutting machine, the word Merry cut perfectly – even with an adhesive sheet on the back. And on that note, know that you will see a LOT more glitter happening in the future because I’m in love with this stuff!

With all my Merry pieces ready, I layered them on top of each other, then simply adhered them to the center of my vellum panel. I stamped the word ‘Christmas’ on a small piece of Citrine cardstock, tucked it right under my layered die cuts, and finished the card with a few white enamel dots.

The final step was adhering the vellum panel to my card base in a way that didn’t show my adhesive. Strategic placement of the snowflakes is key here! I used my go-to skinny foam strips, cut them up into small pieces, and tucked those wherever I could under the sentiments, snowflakes and enamel dots. After flipping the panel back over and placing it on my card base, none of them were noticeable at all. Mission accomplished!

  1. Ang!!! This card!! And that die! Absolutely beautiful in every way. I love the way the softness of the snowflakes plays up on the glitter – such a great pair. And hands down agree, this sparkle paper is my favourite too!
