Well, you get another post about Christmas cards, not an eggroll.
Hey! I just reached 47000 page views here on the ol' blog! That makes me happy.
So, in keeping with the whole Christmas card theme, I wanted to share a couple I had made a while ago.
I made this--
I made this with the Memory Box Catalina Wreath die. I did two die cuts, and glued them together, and added a few rhinestones. That die is a TOUGH one to cut! I need either a metal plate for the Cuttlebug, or a new die cutting machine. That new blue Big Shot looks nice.....
Great. I made a wreath.
I needed a door! So, out came the Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares dies (I don't remember if these are large or small, but really no dif, if they fit your card.
I like the Nestabilities dies for this application, because I can emboss the edges of my diecuts without a lot of fuss, and it really makes it look like a paneled door.
I left off anything that would resemble the door hardware; it just was going to interrupt the overall look. (Door purists are going OCD-nutso at this moment, I'm sure.)
So, a pretty blue door. With a wreath.
Next, I made this--
All those "merry"s ("merrys"?) are from scraps, and the snowflakes are from my now dead (read, the handle snapped off while punching glitter cardstock) Martha Stewart Alpine Snowflake punch. (A moment of silence, please. I LOVED that stupid punch.) The killer gold glitter cardstock is still wedged in there, too....
Did I mention that pink is one of my FAVE Christmas colors?? Oh yeah. Pink, red, lime green, aqua. Perfect Christmas colors. And whatever comes in "shiny."
Well, anything that helps the pile grow is a good card, now that the Hols are nigh.
GO MAKE CARDS!
