Stretch The Christmas Ornament Die

Hello friends!

Remember this die? I mentioned that I'd try to create a project without the ornament element? Spellbinders' monthly new release include this intricate Christmas die. You can check them out HERE.

Through the Woods Etched Dies is part of the Christmas Traditions Collection and can be used in several different designing options. Nest all 12 thin metal dies to create a fun layered Christmas tree scene in an ornament arrangement. Create a window or a shaker card. Use the scene itself for a great focal accent.

 I am creating a scene with all the elements without using the ornament dies.

Each die in this set is just so well done. The two Christmas dies has lovely shape, size and textures. I decided to create a "forest".  I used the negative die paper ( a circle cut out) and ink-blended the  Glacier Cave Pigment Ink.

To make the focal point extra special, I used green glitter paper for the tree in the truck. as for the sentiment, I carefully trimmed off the circle and managed to keep the text in tact!

 I didn't change up the colors scheme from my previous design because I love these iconic and classy colors. See? It's do-able and so fun!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

So beautiful and a great scene made with the bits and pieces from the die without it being in ornament form.

Your scene card using the elements for the ornament is delightful! It also has a great vintage vibe.
