Christmas time is fast approaching

Colleen from Scrappin Granny to share a couple of Christmas cards I made using the same dies.  




I used the same dies for both of these card.  I just LOVE the Holly Border by Yvonne Creations.  This die is just so versatile and that is why I am showing you both cards.  The first card in blue was made using the entire die to create the top portion of the card.

Once I used the die to cut out the top, I glued it onto a cream piece of paper and then cut around the bottom.



Once that was done, I used pop dots to pop it up a bit on the card.  I also added a few pearls to finish off the top.



The red card top was done the same way but for the sides of the card I only used a portion of the die to cut out what I wanted.  This is one of the reasons I love this die, you have so many options of how to use it.



To finish off both cards I used the Merry Christmas die by Pink & Main.  This is another die that you can use in a couple different ways.  I used just the Merry Christmas for the blue card.


While on the red card I used the back surround along with the Merry Christmas.  I just love it when you can use dies in multiple ways, don't you?  You get more bang for your buck.


Thank you for stopping by and please don't forget to check out these great dies as well as other wonderful dies in the store.
