All Die Cut Holiday Card Ideas

I saw a post in a Facebook group yesterday where a girl was using those plastic trays from frozen mini quiches, which are essentially muffin tins, to organize die cut pieces to mass produce die cut cards.

I thought it was brilliant. I'm not nearly that organized when die cutting, but I do love die cut only cards, and lately it seems to me that the die cutting game in general has been kicked up a notch. I see such beautiful things in Instagram and Facebook.

My fave trend is oversized word dies with inlays. Put that together with cute folk art and I'm very vulnerable to shopping! This giant, stitched and folk art themed layering Noel Die is all that and a bag of chips!!! I love it so much. The background die is new - snow and snowflakes.

You know how I am about using the negative space from die cuts, right? No way was this one going in the recycle bin when I could pop this cute die cut nutcracker on it! I used cardstock and glitter paper to put him together - they have different hats and looks you can make with him - it's completely adorable.

This is the one I instantly thought of when I saw the quiche trays - it would be SO fun to die cut a bunch for tags and card and mix and match colors etc. Look how I gave him little blushing cheeks with my tiniest brush!

If you're not singing the song from Christmas vacation while you look at this, I don't even know who you are!

I HAD to make the wood paneled wagon like the one we had when I was little - I used this paper for the bottom. Then I took the gorgeous new script stamp and used Post it Tape to mask the top and the tire tracks before stamping and ink blending over it. The little falala die is new! This is a super quick card and you could use the masks over and over to make a bunch.

  1. Oooo. I think I need that NOEL! lol. Into my wishlist! Along with the poinsettia quilt die....the nutcracker idea is terrific with the interchangeables...but bc he is only a die and not a stamp, I was missing it twice looking at it. lol

  2. love your noel..... so much I had to order it. 🥰

  3. Those are just gorgeous cards Lydia, but then all your cards are! Concord & 9th are so creative, I love their stamps and dies. TFS
