I created this card about 3 weeks ago to use for my Christmas cards. I have now realized I won't get them done until this time next year. So, I have redesigned a card that I possibly can get made and I will show that to you later. It is much simpler...I don't like it as near as well, but I must be realistic this time of year.
The house, tree and snowflake border are all Memory Box dies (which by the way, have arrived and we have a good supply of most of the dies). Three stamps were used; the sentiment by JustRite, the trees are from the Treescape 4004K by Penny Black Stamp and the Reindeer Run stamp B1288 is from Memory Box. Yellow Vellum was cut to put behind the windows and doors.
Glue and Seal Adhesive was used to glue down the tree and border. This glue is fabulous because it does not leavea shine or anything on these delicate dies. Selma and I both love it!
Kassie Brocade embossing folder was "debossed" with Color Box White Ink and ran through the Vagabond. This changed the entire look of the blue card stock Don't you just love it? It looks just like designer paper now. The Joy by Memory Box was cut so that when the card is opened it pops up. The Star was cut out of some scrap silver paper. The next card I did, I moved the Joy down and put the star above. I liked the card better this way, but I grabbed this one to photograph (duh).
By the way, I have had some questions about the Joy die. This die does not have a cutting blade on the bottom, so the bottom is not cut and that is how it pops up. Pretty clever!!
Hope Is Born 3227K Stamp by Penny Black was stamped above.
