Time to Decorate the Tree . . .

Good Day Dies R Us Friends!
Darlene here with a creation to inspire you to get those holiday cards started (if you're running me)!  When you are a card maker, friends & family just don't understand receiving a store bought card anymore and rightfully so!  Especially when there are so many beautiful dies and embossing folders available to make your own (more personal) creations for them!

That is why today I decided to create with both, die cuts and an embossing folder!

 Have you seen all the fabulous Darice embossing folders available at our Dies R Us store?  Unfortunately I believe this Darice #1215-56 'Christmas Tree' folder is sold out but please check into all the others Darice embossing folders available.  So many that you're sure to want available in your stash for creating in the new year!

I just love making these poinsettia's using the Cheery Lynn Designs #B324 'Poinsettia Strip'.   It's designed that you can either stack them to create one full & luscious flower ... or as I did, create two flowers out of one cut.  These are the three most commonly seen colors of poinsettias at holiday time so I decided to combine all three to accent today's creation.  For the leaves I have used the leaf dies in the Sweet Dixie SDD019 'Daisy Set'.  A little touch of Stickles sparkle for the flower centers and tree bulbs was all the extra I thought this creation needed.

I hope you have found inspiration in today's creation and we look forward to having you share YOUR creations with us at the current Dies R Us Challenge Blog challenge ... which happens to be Winter Wonderland and runs through the 13th.

Remember you can stop back here any day of the week (Mon-Fri) for NEW and EXCITING inspiration from me and my team mates!  We each have our own unique style so I'm sure you'll see something to strike your fancy!

I'll be back next Tuesday ... please stop back tomorrow to see the AMAZING creation Sherri has to share with you (lol ... I've already had a peek!)  Happy Cutting Everyone!
