Christmas Robins

Hello crafting friends. Lena here today sharing a couple of Christmas cards made using the same die.  I know, it's only January, but I make Christmas cards all year 'round. That way there is no mad rush in November to complete a bunch of cards to send out 😀




I always enjoy making a few cards that look like I spent a while making them, but in fact  were done in about 15 minutes each.  And what took the longest was placing the tiny gems all around the images! 😀  As I'm sure you know by now, I love pretty background dies. When you're in a pinch, they serve to make beautiful cards in very little time.  As you can see on the above photos, both cards use the same dies, except that I changed the direction and the colours on the second card.  The only other things I added were the gems and the four poinsettias.  This die is beautiful for any occasion and for any time of the year.
The bird images are both from a cutting sheet, called 
Christmas Robins by Marianne Designs, but you can use other images, your stamps or dies. The possibilities are endless!



I kept the inside very simple.  I cut out oval mats using Spellbinders Oval dies and stamped the greeting.  Then added a small stamped holly for a little extra special touch.

 Here is the list of the few supplies I used, each linked to the 
Dies R Us store for your convenience. 





I'd like to remind you  that our sister store is now opened.  Didi Crafts has warehouses located in the USA and Canada, and although it carries some of the same products as Dies R Us, you will also be able to purchase a huge variety of crafty supplies for a variety of crafts.  Having this sister store means that our Canadian crafting friends won't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees.  Isn't that great?!  Go take a peek and be pleasantly surprised!



Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope that I was able to inspired you to use your dies, create a project, and come play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog for your chance to win a gift voucher to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of every month.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.
