Today we are featuring a new stamp and die pair: Winter Words Confetti Cuts dies and Winter Word Coordinates stamps. This pair is similar to Fancy Words and Fancy Word Coordinates, which I have loved and use A LOT. The sentiments are a bit bigger this time, and the letters of the word die-cuts are all connected this time (some of the Fancy Words dies cut in multiple pieces due to the font), which makes using the word die-cuts even easier.
I love the combination of the word die-cuts, plus the coordinating stamped sentiments. They are small enough to tuck in as a supporting design element but big enough to feature more prominently, too. Today, I've combined the "peace on earth" sentiment with the new Wreath Confetti Cuts die.
I kept the design very simple with an offset felt Wreath die-cut (with the individual leaf cut-outs still in place) topped with a vellum Wreath die-cut and accented with ivory enamel dots. The Winter Words and Winter Word Coordinates sentiment are layered on top. Finishing touches are three red enamel dots and a machine stitched torn vellum border.
STAMPS: Winter Word Coordinates
CONFETTI CUTS DIES: Winter Words, Wreath
PAPER: PTI Smokey Shadow card stock and Soft Stone Stripe patterned paper, vellum card stock
OTHER: sewing machine, white thread, enamel dots, white embossing powder
