Reversible Diecuts Christmas Card
Double your dies with the technique I used to make this Reversible Diecuts Christmas Card! Mirror-image glimmer hollyhocks frame a simple sentiment in the center for a quick card.
If you dislike fussy-cutting as much as I do, then you probably love your die-cuts. Beautiful intricate cutouts in seconds without a pair of scissors.
Why not also double the use of your dies and make mirror-images of them??
I’ve also been trying to steer away from “traditional” colors for my holiday cards. This combo, Soft Sea Foam and Sweet Sorbet, kept standing out to me due to its softness and how it seems to pay homage to a more vintage look.
And bonus: You’ll only need one piece of 6” x 6” glimmer paper for this card using this technique.
See below for how to double your die-cuts and create a Christmas card:
How to make a Reversible Diecuts Christmas Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Soft Sea Foam: 8-1/2” x 5-1/2”, folded at 4-1/4”
Die-Cut and Reverse Die-Cut:
- With the large hollyhocks die and a sheet of the Sweet Sorbet Glimmer Paper, die-cut out the flowers like normal.
- Next, flip your glimmer paper over, place your die on the white part, and run it through your machine like normal to cut out the flowers from that side. BAM! Mirror-image die-cuts!
- Glue each of these flowers to the left or right side of your card base. Trim anything that hangs over the edges.
Create the sentiment:
- From the leftover glimmer paper, cut or die-cut out a 1” x 2-1/4”rectangle.
- Then stamp your holiday sentiment on a 3/4” x 2” strip of white cardstock using Soft Sea Foam ink, and adhere this to your glimmer rectangle. Lastly, use dimensionals to adhere this to the center of your card.
