Holly Jolly Christmas

Hello All and welcome back to the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog!
Darlene with you today sharing a quick & fun holiday card.


 I have used two die sets to create today's card and it's actually a new company to me but I love their die sets ... be sure to check them out at our STORE.  The company I'm referring to is Hunkydory and here are the sets I've used ...


Hunkydory - Moonstone Dies - Prancing Pixies
 

Hunkydory - Moonstone Dies - A Holly Jolly Christmas
 
 Unfortunately, I see that both sets are out of stock at the moment but be sure to get on the Waiting List so you will be notified as soon as they are restocked.  See photo below ...
 
 
 
As far as putting my card together,  once I decided on the dies I wanted to use,  I was in need of using up some of the many scraps I have laying around right now on my work table so that is where it all began. 

I had these strips left over from a recent project so lined them up, taped them together on the reverse side then cut the panel to the dimension required for my A6 size card background panel.


Then I began die cutting and gathering  those pieces I wanted for my scene.


As I began assembling my card, I thought it would be fun to add a little 'snow' on the bottom to coordinate with the icicle panel at the top of my card.  So I simply grabbed another strip of white card stock scraps ... cut it to length that would slide down inside my red oval decorative panel ... tore the top edge to resemble snow and slipped it down into place.
 

I have used 3d foam squares behind my deer to add dimension
 
Thermoweb - 3D Foam Squares Combo Pack - White .25

and Zots Glue Dots to adhere my cute little ribbon bow.

  4. So festive, Darlene. I don't have any dies from this company, but seeing your card, that is going to change in the very near future :-)
