merry & bright

Hi friends! Happy Fri-YAY! It’s definitely a YAY day for me because I’m finally able to announce that I’ve joined the Dies R Us Design Team! Woo-hoo! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I’m delighted to be on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with my debut DT inspiration project! I created a pair of Christmas cards featuring the absolutely gorgeous Birch Press Design Mini Snowflake Frame Layer Set! I am so in love with this entire line!

These two cards are very similar but slightly different. I die cut two sets of snowflake frame layers from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Aquamarine cardstock, CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon cardstock and CutCardStock Silk Glitter Silvermist cardstock, assembled them, and set them aside. I reversed the top and middle layer colors – the top layer of the snowflake on the left is the slightly darker teal color whereas the one on the right is light teal.

I cut a standard A2 size card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock for each card along with front layering panels from CutCardStock Basis Teal cardstock and teal double-sided patterned paper which I layered together (reversing the sides of the paper for each card) and adhered to the card base. I then adhered a snowflake frame to each card front. I stamped the sentiment twice in Versamark on CutCardStock Basis Teal cardstock and heat embossed them in white. I cut them in strips and adhered them with Scotch 3M foam tape.

I cut inside layering panels for each card from CutCardStock Basis Teal cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock, and adhered them together. I embellished each panel with a strip of teal double-sided patterned paper and narrow strip of teal cardstock used on the front, stamped the sentiment in teal ink on each, and adhered a panel to the inside of each card base.

And one more peek… I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love these cards! This die set is amazingly gorgeous and I was extremely lucky to have the patterned paper to match the light and dark teal Stardream Metallic cardstock!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  2. Wow, these are simple beautiful. I love that die. I went and priced it…quite pricey since I just spent a bundle on craft supplies. Maybe later this year. These card are absolutely perfect.
