Good day to you, my crafty friends! I hope you have been enjoying your fall weekend. Lifestyle Crafts just released its Wintertide collection of dies and I am delighted to get to share some of them with you today. Plus, as an Affiliate, I get to offer readers an exclusive 20% discount code for use in the LC Store (details below.)

Aren't these pretty? The set comes with all 5 snowflakes.

There are two bonus "single" trees included in the Evergreen Punches die set.

I love winter and decorating for the holidays. When I saw these darling Snowflakes and Evergreen Punches Dies, I knew I wanted to make something that would brighten up our place during the holidays. I decided to create some easy-to-make luminaries.

To make these luminaries, I simply die-cut the Snowflake and Christmas Tree Border shapes from cardstock that I decorated with some holiday patterned paper. I added some vellum backing to create a soft light effect once these are "lit" (Bean Tip: since these are made of paper, be sure to reuse those flameless candles you used in your Halloween pumpkins!)

In less than an hour, I had two pretty luminaries that I hope will light up our holidays this year!

Patterned Paper: Christmas Cheer Collection (Imaginisce); Cardstock: textured (American Crafts); DiesSnowflakes and Evergreen Punches (Lifestile Crafts); Accents: Liquid Pearls, Stickles (Ranger); Fibers: Pleated Satin (Stampin' Up!), green taffeta (generic)
