Big Shot Christmas Cards

080821-bigshot-christmas-cardsWant to see what you missed at the Christmas Card Crank #2 on Monday night? These are 2 of the 4 cards everyone completed–actually, everyone made 4 of each card, for a total of 16 cards. You know you wish you had your Christmas cards started… I want to help you!! There’s going to be a Christmas Card Crank each month (3rd Monday, usually) until December, so you’ll have a chance to get well underway before the holiday crunch arrives. Want to sign up for the next one? Visit to see what’s coming up.

These cards used the new Big Shot–the result of an exclusive Stampin’ Up! partnership with Sissix. Doesn’t it look FUN!? My daughter Abby is 4 (and a half) and she loves this thing. She can play for hours cranking the dies through and making flowers and “cards for the stamping ladies” as she calls them.

080821-bigshot-xmas-cardWant to know how to do this notecard? It’s so easy! Just take the Top Note Bigz die (available for preorder NOW from me for $21.95–just email me!). Fold your Riding Hood Red cardstock (love that color) in half and place the fold INSIDE the shape of the cutting blade. When you run the die through the Big Shot, the edges will be cut but not the fold, and voila! You have a card! The Pirouette Pink strip was added BEFORE putting the cardstock through the machine, so it’s cut perfectly in the shape of the Top Note, too. And this is just ONE of the Stampin’ Up! exclusive dies that will be available starting September 2nd. But if you can’t wait to get yours, email me NOW and I’ll put your order through within minutes of when the ordering goes live on September 2nd. And you’ll be among the FIRST to have your own!!

080821-bigshot-happy-holiday-cardThis second card uses the Snowflakes Sizzlets (also available for preorder now through me–a set of 4 for $19.95). I put the Pacific Point cardstock through the Top Note die first, then placed the cut cardstock on the Snowflakes dies and ran them through the machine. So I ended up with the negative snowflakes on the Pacific Point layer. Added a snowflake in Brushed Silver cardstock (so pretty!) and trimmed the Pacific Point note on the handy perforations so that it would layer nicely with the Whisper White layer.
