Holiday Card Making Time . . .

WOW!  These weeks are just FLYING by!!
Hello friends!
Today I have a card to share that was created for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog using dies from the Dies R Us Store.

I am just LOVIN' all the new holiday dies available at the Dies R Us Store.
Here is just an example of two ...
Sue Wilson 'Festive Collection - Snowflake Mini Striplet' ... #CED3036
(SORRY at the time of write up this die was already out of stock ... but be sure to check out all the other amazing Sue Wilson 'striplets' ... 

I took a few liberties with this design!
The background (inside) of the ornament 'pops out',
 so I die cut my ornament in one color, 
glued it down to a piece of card stock that would match the background BoBunny design paper
 and 'fussy cut' around the ornament ... giving it a solid look vs outline.

I also 'clipped' the top swirl from the left & right ornaments
and reattached them to the middle ornament top.  This gave the ornaments a different look (one from the other) and a little more festive flourish in the center.  Then a dab of light blue Liquid Pearls was added here and there.

It's never too early to get those holiday cards started so be sure to run right over to the Dies R Us Store for all your holiday card making dies.  SO MANY companies are showcased, I'm sure you'll be happy you stopped by!

Hi Darlene, just popped over to say thanks for your comment on my mummy card. You are right, it's wierd, but just so much fun. I have amended my post slightly cos I forgot to say that he is interactive. Only one leg is glued down so you can use the other one to move his body and jiggle the fish in front of the cat. Even more wierd, but really fun. Love your ornament card. Those cuts are so intricate. Have a lovely day. Hugz
