Memory Box Precious Gingerbread, Frosted Pine Trio and more…

by Pam Sparks



Deck the halls with boughs of holly!  Here’s some cute little guys to add fragrance to the Christmas season.

Don’t forget the candy canes!  I love the NEW Tiny Candy Canes die stamped with the NEW Candy Cane Stripes background stamp.



I just think they are so cute die cut in kraft card-stock with the edges inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.  Yes!  They’d make darling gift tags too!

Dies and stamps I used…

Holly Branch die – die cut in white and colored with Copic markers
Ho Ho Holly Leaves die – 
die cut in white and colored with Copic markers
Jolly Combo stamp
Precious Gingerbread Men die
Gingerbread Decorations die

Next up, the NEW Frosted Pine Trio die, cut and embossed in white card-stock.



Check out the wonderful detail on the trees!  I adhered the trees to the card with mounting adhesive squares.


I used Ho Ho Holly Leaves die to embellish the sentiment stamp, Walking Winter Wonderland…and the wonderful NEW Snowflake Arch die as a backdrop for the trees.



Both cards are A-2 size.
