Another die set from Moonstone

Hello there! I have another post today using moonstone dies and this time the die set is the one called deck-the-halls. I am less happy with my makes for this set of dies - but the making process was fine - I think I am less enamoured by the subject matter - I preferred the village set and the woodland set is also much more me!  Anyway - the dies are simple to use - based on using a specific hunkydory card blank which I didn't have and just managed the way I did with the last die.

In this first one I again made my own card blank and an A4 cutting platform and cut into my card. I also added a backdrop of 'wallpaper' created using ink and a stencil.

In this picture the card is more opened up.

For this next card I used a flat 6 x 6 card and added the diecuts to it - again with the 'wallpaper' backdrop.

I think the cards are quite successful to say I'm not a diecutter - I think I prefer the flat one to be honest. As for the dies themselves, they cut really cleanly!
Thanks again to Hunky Dory for supplying these dies!

  1. Great cards Rachel but TBH I prefer the flat one too suits the scene better love the staircase

  2. These seem really cute to me - and the zigzag card is really clever, leading the eye up the stairs to bed (so that Father Christmas can come!). But I'll have to go and check out the Village and Woodland sets you've been playing with too, clearly...
