Good morning! Today, I am hopping along with the Waltzingmouse Design Team. We are sharing projects made with the brand new Alpine Christmas set and Dies! Yes, you read that right! Waltzingmouse now has coordinating Cutting Edge Dies!!
I have to tell you how much I L.O.V.E. this set! I know I've mentioned this here before, but my husband is from Switzerland. All of his family still lives there. When I first saw this set, I knew this would be the set that I will use for the cards that we send over seas!
For my first card, I created an easy to mail card. I started by stamping the mountains, village, and sentiment. (Note: I masked the cute little tree that sits on top of the sentiment as I didn't want it to stamp over the mountains image.) I then used the Alpine Christmas dies to quickly cut around the mountains. I adhered it to a background piece that I dry embossed. I then popped it up and mounted in on the card base. For embellishment, I tied on some hemp cord and added a little glitter.
For my second card, I was going for a more neutral/rustic feel. I covered a piece of kraft cardstock with some natural muslin material (I stamped the large and medium snowflakes on it first). I then layered on the chalet (after I used the Alpine Christmas Dies to cut it out), sentiment tag, and a felt heart. All of the images and sentiment are from the new Alpine Christmas stamp set.
Have I mentioned yet how much I love this set? :-) I can't wait to send these to my husband's relatives and friends!
