Hi everyone! I meant to get cards posted on Saturday and here it is Tuesday already! I’m just going to put these two in one post.
I saw the ‘wreath’ challenge at CAS Christmas Card Challenge and had to play along!
I die cut one of the Memory Box Stitched Square Layers dies in a 4.25 x 5.5 inch panel of Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock, then embossed the next larger square die by running it through the Big Shot with the tan embossing mat (link below). I use the multi purpose platform and take away the first layer to do the embossing.
I colored a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with 3 different green Copic Sketch markers and then die cut the NEW Pine Wreath die (4 branches) on each color. Then I die cut one of the NEW Snowberry Sprigs die in Solar White and colored the berries red and the stem brown with Copic Sketch markers too.
Use a 1.6 inch circle frame from the Memory Box Stitched Circles dies for the wreath base, then adhere the pine branches onto the base.
Then I cut the NEW Snowberry Sprig into little sprigs and just glued them in, here and there very randomly. Fun! Christmas is a time for greens and berries for sure! Glad Tidings is from the NEW Typewriter Holiday Sentiments stamp set.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – pop it up (3d mounting tape)
The swap for stamp club Friday was a card with a different fold… so I made this next card at the last minute! The pictures aren’t the greatest cuz, last minute loo loo was hurrying!
Here’s the front… I layered up the NEW Meadowtree Frame with the Horse Sleigh Landscape die…cut both in Solar White 110# cardstock and ink blended the sky with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and spattered on some white ink. I colored the horse and sleigh with a Copic Sketch black marker trimmed it to fit and mounted it to the scene.
When you pull both sides, it flips the square. I used a Sizzix die to cut the flip part of the card it’s an older one that’s not available anymore #657591. It’s really easy to make this fold yourself though. I’ve done it before. Holler if you want me to find a tutorial for it or draw up the measurements for you. I need to make another one and make a video of it flipping! There is also a new thin die from Sizzix. I’ll link up to it below and the square looks like it’s * close to the same size.
I used the NEW Countryside Fence Frame die and the NEW Meadowtree Frame on the flip side. I ink blended the sky with Chipped Sapphire Regular Distress ink and white ink splatters.
The Seasons Greetings sentiment is from the NEW Be Jolly stamp set and let it snow is from the NEW Snow Much Fun stamp set.
