I used a Cottage Cutz die (Holiday Cardinal) that my dear friend Birgit gifted me this past Christmas and came up with this:
I love all the detail in this die and yet it was SO easy to put together!! I used Old Olive and Real Red cardstocks (and a tiny bit of black and Summer Sunrise) to die cut everything and then ink blended around the edges to give some depth. The "Joy" is from PTI's Bold Borders: Flurries die. I used a white card base and added a layer of Old Olive cs and then another layer of white that I dry embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder. A little bit of jute and bakers twine finished off this easy and pretty Christmas card.
Still a few days left to play along with this challenge, so get a Kickstart on those Christmas cards using your dies this time and play along right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
