I made this--
I had coveted that Memory Box Catalina Wreath die for AGES, and I just LOVE it. It is super detailed, so my metal shim REALLY helps cut it out, and even then, I had to do a tiny bit of snipping.
My background paper had that tiny bit of pool color in it, so I added to it with a Papertrey Ink sentiment stamp, and kept the color going with my wreath ,including the tiny bling. These are Heidi Swapp papers, I do believe, except for the wreath, which is an ancient DCWV pad. This is a 12x12 pad, and I am really digging how big the lettering is.
I REALLY wish the photo showed how shiny my sledding kid is, because I am PSYCHED about how I got it. I used scraps of photo print paper! Whoa! I was using my trimmer to trim some photos that I printed (which I NEVER do), and I really loved the shine of the paper. I have yet to try to stamp or watercolor on it, but I LOVE it for this die cut.
I am also following the Festive Friday challenges, or trying to, anyway, so with any luck I will have a great stash of Christmas cards well before the rush of the season. That would be good. This one doesn't fit in with their challenge at the moment, but I will get on the ball with them soon, I hope.
I'll leave you today with just a small detail of my card--
Thanks so much for stopping by!
