Die Cutting from DSP

This card is featured on Simply Saturday, my weekly YouTube series. A new episode drops every Saturday morning!

This quick and easy card utilizes a great technique of cutting the tree image right out of the DSP!! No stamping required. You’ll often find DSP that coordinates with stamp sets and dies, but don’t forget to specifically look for papers that have images that may be punched or die cut directly from the paper. Another example of this is the Zoo Crew paper (coordinates with Zany Zoo). It has several designs that coordinate with specific dies – you just cut them out!

To make this card you’ll need:

  • Pretty Peacock card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″. Score at 5 1/2″. From one end, cut off a 2 3/4″ piece.
  • 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Pretty Peacock from above.
  • Basic white card stock 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside panel
  • Basic white card stock 2 1/2″ x 4″
  • Walk in the Forest DSP – for die cutting the Tree
  • Walk in the Forest DSP (pattern 2) 2 1/2″ x 4″
  • Walk in the Forest DSP (pattern 3) 3/4″ x 4″. (1/2″ wide is also acceptable.)
  • white ribbon of your choice

A second version of this card involves die cutting the red garland and attaching the strings to the Christmas Tree. It isn’t hard, but it takes extra time cutting, then gluing the garland on. What do you think?
