Holiday Card Making Time . . .

Hello Dies R Us friends!
Darlene with you today!
I know, I know ... it's Halloween week and here I am pushing holiday cards on you!  LOL
But as you know ... time does fly and there's no time like the present to get started ... right??
So here's an inspirational, festive card I created 'just for you' using dies from the Dies R Us Store.


I am just LOVIN' all the new holiday dies available at the Dies R Us Store.
Here is just an example of two ...
Sue Wilson 'Festive Collection - Snowflake Mini Striplet' ... #CED3036
(SORRY at the time of write up this die was already out of stock ... 
but be sure to check out all the other amazing Sue Wilson 'striplets' ... i.e. Holly Mini Striplet #CED3039)


I took a few liberties with this design!
As you can see by the image photo, the background (inside) of the ornament 'pops out' creating an outline.
So, I die cut my ornament in one color card stock, 
glued it down to a piece of card stock that would match the background BoBunny design paper
 and 'fussy cut' around the ornament ... 
giving it a solid look vs outline.

I also 'clipped' the top swirl from the left & right ornaments
and reattached them to the middle ornament top.  This gave the ornaments a different look (one from the other) and a little more festive flourish in the center.  Then a dab of light blue Liquid Pearls was added here and there.

It's never too early to get those holiday cards started so be sure to run right over to the Dies R Us Store for all your holiday card making dies.  SO MANY companies are showcased, I'm sure you'll be happy you stopped by!
