Christmas Cheer card

Recently I showed you a project I created with the Dazzling Diamond Rhinestone sheets from
 The Buckle Boutique.  If you did not see that post you can click HERE to see my past projects with this product wonderful product!

The first time I had the chance to play with the Rhinestone Resin Self Adhesive Sticker Sheets from The Buckle Boutique was at the Cropped Event in Wisconsin this past summer.  I was so amazed by this product!  It is a sheet of rhinestones with an adhesive backing, but the BEST part about it is that you can CUT it with scissors or a die-cutting machine!  The rhinestones are actually made from a soft material, so the blade can go right through them.  It is amazing!

Here are what the sheets look like when you get them



Some tips for working with this product when cutting with your Cricut
  1. Use a deep cut blade
  2. Place your blade depth at 6
  3. Use a mulit-cut of 4
  4. Place the product face down on the Cricut cutting mat and use the Flip Mode  (since you have the product upside down, you need to flip the cut for the image to be correct when you flip it over)

I was working on a few holiday cards and I had a sheet of the emerald green Dazzling Diamond product that I thought would be PERFECT for a Christmas card.


I used a scrap of green paper that had triangles in several bright colors for the background, and then I used the negative space I had left over from cutting a red top note cut.  This is a great way to use the left over pieces when you are crafting!  Don't throw away the scraps . . . use them!

I wanted a light background so that the Christmas tree really popped, so I used some white paper that I ran through the Cuttlebug with my snowflake embossing folder.  Then I cut the Christmas tree from the Christmas Cheer Cricut cartridge out of the emerald green Dazzling Diamond rhinestone sheet.  Since this product has an adhesive back, once I cut it out all I needed to do is peel off the backing and I could attach it to my card.  

I did a video showing you the cutting settings for this product that you can watch by clicking HERE.
