Memory Box Holiday Greetings.

I did a lot of Christmas cards using my distress oxide inks after I saw a couple of videos by Dave Brethauer. I like this design because there is texture and dimension without the bulk. We have several single male friends so I like to do cards that are a little more masculine for them. I will enter this in the Memory Box Holiday Greetings Challenge,  I also cut the PTI sentiment from the same paper, 

Lawn Fawn - Stitched Rectangle Frames Dies

TIP   I decided when I got Lawn Fawn Stitched die to leave it attached. When I cut with it, I get the stitched frames but I also get the frames in between the stitched frames. So when I cut with this die, I get the three stitched frames and three that have no stitching. Since I use frames on my cards frequently, I have a variety of sizes to use for different projects. 

Double D Baby It's Cold Outside

This is our last challenge of the 2017 at Double D Challenge Blog and Darlene has inspired us with all things winter. Don't you love the upside down snowman?  I did not take inspiration from one photo, but when I saw this board, I realized I had a new die that was perfect for the challenge.

 My goal for this year was to make my Christmas cards flat and easy for mailing and this Amy Design Wintertide  made that easy. 

I cut the Amy Design scene from heavy white card stock. I added a little bit of color to door window and lamp post, backed it with some PTI paper and added a  tree in the center...quick and easy. I did add a few gems to the snowflakes since this card was going to become the top of a box and not be mailed. 

If you have never visited the Amy Design Page at Dies R Us and you like this frame, you should visit. There are several frames in this line covering multiple themes including  tools, vehicles and wild animals.

Here is the prize for this challenge.

I hope all of you have a fun-filled, memory- making holiday filled with all things that make you happiest.  MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
