Christmas in July

Hello Dies R Us Friends!
There's no time like the present to get started 
on those holiday cards!
Darlene here with you today... welcome back! 
I couldn't wait to receive some of the new holiday dies released 
from Memory Box and available in the Dies R Us Store.

Today I've created a card using a NEW die and a couple OLDER dies.  I love being able to combine dies to create a quick and impressive card creation!

These newly released dies go in & out of stock quickly so be sure to get your order placed while they are available!  Today I've used one of the new Memory Box snowflake dies called Dazzling Snowdrift Corner #MBD 99272 which unfortunately at the time of this posting ... is out of stock.

 This is really a fun die!
The snowflakes actually cut & pop out for additional versatility on your card (as I have done today).  First I die cut my corner die from white card stock ... then from a scrap of the medium blue I used for my background panel, I die cut just the 3 larger snowflakes.  I lightly sponged Tim Holtz 'faded jeans' distress ink onto the blue snowflakes and inserted them into the my corner die panel where the white snowflakes were popped out from. 
Follow me?
Maybe this closeup will help ...
 

After getting the corner created to my satisfaction, I decided to use a couple of the white snowflakes from the original cut along with these adorable Memory Box 'Precious Mittens' #98663 and of course a sentiment.  In this case, I chose the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Merry Christmas Set' #B186.
Of course every holiday card needs a touch of sparkle so I grabbed my red Stickles and added a dab here and there to 'pull it all together'!  

AGAIN ... be sure to get your holiday dies on order NOW!
The prices at the Dies R Us store are fabulous  ... as are the shipping charges ... and the selection is AMAZING!!!!

Don't forget about our CHALLENGE BLOG ... please come join in the fun!  Today's card actually fits with the current challenge which is CHRISTMAS IN JULY!!  You have until the 28th to get your entry in and YOU could be the winner of a gift voucher to the store!
