If you’re like me, you get a serious case of craft envy when you look at all of the different DIY projects on Pinterest.
This is especially true with Christmas cards. Really, how do these craft masters come up with such unique creations? Well, I'm going to let you in on a little secret: They use dies. And you know what? You can be one of those craft masters envied by thousands -- or at least by your friends and family -- with one of the many unique card dies available in the AccuCut Craft store.
Use these creative Christmas cards to inspire your own creations this year. And for even more card inspiration, visit our Project Gallery.
Christmas Door Mini Album
One of our crafty customers came up with this beautiful door Christmas album using the Album-Door - Crease Super Jumbo die ($200). We love how inviting it looks... just can't wait to open it and see what's inside!
Santa Bottle Christmas Card
Okay, so the #10 Card Mats-Wine Bottle (Pinnovation) die ($110) doesn't exactly scream "Christmas," but customer Charlene R. used it to create an awesome themed holiday card to thank her customers at Redd Vineyard. Isn't the Santa Claus motif fun?!
Snowflake Cascade Card
Cascade cards are all the rage this year... and the Note Card-Cascade die ($75.00) takes all the tedious scoring out of creating one. Senior Designer Traci Armbrust also added the Snowflake #1 - Small die ($55) to create a fun winter wonderland feel to it, too.
Christmas Step Card
Step cards are a fun alternative to standard single-fold Christmas cards. Use the A7 Card-Step #2 die ($75.00) to create a 3-D holiday card without all the extra cutting and scoring.
Merry Christmas Stair Step Card
This is one Christmas card your recipients will proudly display into the new year! The A2 Card-Stair Step - Crease Jumbo die ($65.00) gives you plenty of room for customization with the 3-D feel.
Card in Nothing Flat: December 25 Card
On the outside this card looks like a normal, run-of-the-mill card, but once the recipient opens it she'll see a beautiful pop-up Christmas tree. Card in Nothing Flat-Christmas Tree - Crease Jumbo die ($125) is the natural choice for holiday cards, but we also have CINF-Candles and Snowman dies for other types of hoilday cards.
Elf Card in a Box
What's better than a card? A card in a box, of course! The popular Card in a Box - Crease Super Jumbo die ($95) is already a hit for the holiday season. Here, Traci paired it with the new Mixed Media Art Doll - Jumbo die ($75) and the Mixed Media Art Doll Accessories-Elf die ($75) to make a fun greeting for the holiday season.
