Holiday Wishes

Hi.  First of all, thanks for all the comments on Bill's pictures of our trips, greatly appreciated.   He was 'wowed' by your comments.

 I thought it was time that I start working on my Christmas cards for this year.  I have some orders to fill, plus my sale basket out in Dresden and Paper Pickle.

Today's card showcases a Memory Box die called Classic Ornament.  You can purchase this die at
The Paper Pickle.  I've seen several cards made using this die. 

I started by cutting out 3 ornaments from glitter paper - silver, gold, and chocolate brown.  Love this paper it is so shimmery. I then placed the ornaments where I wanted them to hang, then drew  fine black lines for the thread.  I popped the ornaments up using pop dots.  It was kind of plain so I cut some pine needles using Memory Box Pine Needle border.  Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I also made another version but this time I used glitter paper in the colours of black, silver and charcoal.

I love both of these, how about you, do you have a favourite?  Overall, this card is pretty quick to make.  I think I will be making more of these with other colours.

Thanks for stopping in today.  See you in a few days with another Christmas card.

I can see how these would be quick and easy, cut from the glitter paper. Great design for a card that WOWs without a lot of trouble. Your hand drawn strings look like real string. I do love the pine bough border along the top. Really finishes it off nicely. A favorite? I don't know... #1 maybe? Sounds like you've got lots of cards to make, and I can't wait to see more! Thanks for sharing these!
