Happy Holidays

Hello crafty friends,

Mary here today showcasing a few dies, some from the recent Christmas release and some from past releases.  

I started my first card by covering the front with pattern paper... wood grain, because I'm currently obsessed with the stuff.
I cut the middle section of the cover out, leaving just a half inch frame.   I die cut four of the Whisper - Holiday Cheer Chains in red and green glitter card stock, which I glued behind the front cover frame.

Next, I die cut the "Happy Holidays" and "Seasons Greetings" words from the Holiday Compliments 1 die. As a finishing touch I added two of the hanging ornaments from the Holiday Cheer Chain to the top right hand of the card front.

I started my second card by covering the front with a
fun holiday pattern paper... no wood grain this time :)

I die cut two of the Whispers - Diva Crown die in red glitter card stock and glued them to the top and bottom on my card front.

Next I punched four white card stock squares and inked their edges w/hot pink ink.  I glued them to the center of my card front overlapping the bottom curve of the crown die cuts a little.

On three of the squares I added glitter red die cut Whispers - Polished Diamonds and on the last square I stamped my greeting.  

I hope you have enjoyed your time on our blog. Until next time


  1. These are both gorgeous, Mary!! I love how you used the Holiday Cheer Chains - they look amazing!! (I'm obsessed with wood grain papers, too!!) And how creative to use the crowns as decorations - love them!! Fabulous job on both!!

  2. Mary ~ you did a great job on both of your cards! I love how you used the crown on the top and bottom of the second card and the Holidy Cheer Chains look wonderful like that on your first card!!
