Dies R Us Christmas Carols

The challenge at DIES R US is perfect for adding to your Christmas card stash. Do you believe it will be time to put them in the mail soon? This is an easy challenge just make a card with a Christmas carol in mind. As a child and teenager growing up in Western Pennsylvania, a white Christmas was always a possibility but not a given. I always loved the idea of a snow for Christmas so that may explain why many of my winter and Christmas cards are filled with snowflakes and of course, I love oval dies so this new one from Memory Box became a "Must Have"  for me.

After watching  Dave Brethauer create some beautiful backgrounds for Memory Box dies, I decided to pull out my oxide inks and create several backgrounds for cards. The photo does not show it, but I splattered the background with some watered down glue and added some white glitter and I also added some glitter on the tree.   In this closeup, the background still does not show off the glitter but you can see some on the tree. 

Even though it has seven layers, it will mail with regular postage.  

Here are the dies I used from the Dies R Us Store.
