Memory Box Christmas cards…

PamSparksPineNeedleBorderBlkGoldSilver675

I like challenges!  I created this card for the Cutting Edge Challenge – Kay Miller’s card for inspiration (I turned it) and for the Merry Monday Christmas Challenge – use black, gold and silver!  Yay! Such fun!

I’m also linking both my cards in this post to the Cutting Edge Blog Hop.

and to Freshly Made Sketches Challenge – Sketch 150  (I flipped the sketch)

FMS Final 150-001

This is an A2, white, side fold card…the black layer is glossy card-stock cut to 3 3/4 in. x 5 in.

I die cut the Pine Needle border die in Metallic Silver card-stock, taped it to the black layer and then rounded all four corners with the EK Sucess Medium size corner rounder punch.

Look at all the awesome detail!  YES!  That’s Memory Box for you! : )

I heat embossed the sentiment stamp, Wonderful Time Combo with detail Gold embossing powder.

I die cut the Plush Poinsettia die in Metallic Gold and Silver card-stocks.  Glued them together, then layered it on with mounting squares.

Love it!  Wish you could see it IRL!  It makes me smile!  Always love it when cards work out how you want them to! Doesn’t take much to make me happy! lol

Well, you know me!  I couldn’t just stop there… this card evolved from other things I was trying! lol

I die cut two of the Plush Poinsettia die and adhered them to the top and bottom corners of my A-2 size card panel.

Then I die cut the Grand Joyeus Noël die in that panel.  I had to trim the left side with a scissors.

I love how the design shows in the letters!  more FUN!

Then I used the Poinsettia Bloom die over the bottom corner and added some twine.

I’m linking my Joyeux Noël card to the Papercrafts Connection Link Party – Holiday Cards  and to the Winter Wonderland Christmas Challenge – anything goes

That’s it from me today!  I had fun and I hope you’re having fun with this new collection from Memory Box too!  Holler if you have any questions and thanks for commenting!  Nothing like encouraging a gal to keep die cutting and inking!

‘preciate it so much! Take care!
