Merry | American Crafts

Shaped Christmas cards are fun to give and receive!  I used a die cut from the Silhouette store along with the DIY Shop 2 collection to create this fun one of a kind card.

Supplies: DIY Shop 2 (369125) - Burlap Specialty Surface Gold Glitter Dots Paper, DIY Shop 2 (368997) - Paper Straws Gold Dot, Be Merry (368929) - Wood Veneer Shapes Snow, Be Merry (368931) - Cardstock Die-Cuts Cookies, Cardstock (AM714-17) - Glitter Cardstock Gold, Maggie Holmes (MH-TH-83154) - Glitter Foam Daiquiri Gold Thickers

How to:  Use a die cutting machine to make an ornament shape from burlap paper and gold glitter paper.  Use a sewing machine to stitch burlap ornament design onto a round card.  Adhere gold ornament hook to top of card.  Spell out the word "merry" with gold glitter thickers and adhere to "making a list and checking it twice" die cut card, adhere card to center of card.  Trim 3 gold dot paper straws and adhere to card.  Finish by embellishing with wood veneer pieces.
