Christmas Joy with Sizzix & Tim Holtz Chapter 3


Happy Monday, crafty friends! I’m excited to kick off the week with a little holiday card project that I made for the Sizzix blog The Making Journal featuring some fabulous new Tim Holtz dies from the Chapter 3 release. I am a sucker for Santa Claus images, and this guy right here from the Papercut Christmas #1 die set has truly stolen my heart with his retro look. Isn’t he quite the jolly fellow?


I think Santa’s mid-century modern 50’s vibe works perfectly with the geometric shapes of the Triangles Stacked Tiles set. There are so many fun things you can do with simple shapes like these. Right away, I saw Christmas trees, and a banner is always a great idea for triangle shapes, as well.


I used Tiny Type alpha dies to add lettering to the banner, and the older Snowman Scene set to create the snowy border across the bottom of the card. Another new die set from chapter 3, Falling Stars, was used to add a topper to the largest stacked tree. Then layers of Distress Kraft Stock cardstock and Distress stamped watercolor paper finish the design.

I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for this card up on the Sizzix Making Journal Blog, if you’d like to learn more.
