For my card today, I used one of our new holiday digital cut files! I love this holiday sentiment in the bold cut out letters against the stark background (perfect for shaker cards too!).  I started off by cutting the sentiment onto an A2 sized red card panel.  Then I added some stitching to the edges with our Rectangular Double Stitched dies.

Next I heat embossed the poinsettias from our Fresh Cut Poinsettia Coordinating Outlines at the corners. I made sure to stamp holiday foliage into and over the cut out sentiment to add some interest to the card.  I adhered the panel onto a black side folding A2 cardbase and finished the card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins!

I love this card because it’s a perfect masculine holiday card and easy to mass produce if you cut out your card panels ahead of time. I cut out several panels using my Brother Scan N Cut 2 and will be making more of these for this season!
