Dies R Us 'I Love You' Holiday Card

Hello dear friends!
Today I'm sharing a holiday card I made with someone special in mind!
I've created this card as my inspiration to you via the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog ... please be sure to pop over there Monday through Friday for NEW inspiration samples from the team!

My granddaughter 'signs' and when I saw this die I just knew I had to have it for her Christmas card this year.  What a fabulous idea by the manufacturer!  She's going to love it I'm sure.  

The dies used today are:

By using the snowflake background die set, I was able to keep the design simple yet festive!  And, I like how the 'signing sentiment' really stands out ... gets the point across immediately!!!

The snowflake embellishments are actually cut from the inside of the Impression Obsession snowflake background.  I had used that particular (and beautiful) die on a different card as an overlay ... so I had cut out the center snowflakes.  I sponged them with a little Tim Holtz distress 'broken china' ink and they made fabulous embellishments for the front of today's card.  
(We NEVER waste anything do we?  lol)


This beautiful sentiment die cut is all that was needed to extend my wishes to this lovely young lady!

There are so many AMAZING dies available at our Dies R Us Store ... you really owe it to yourself to go have a look around.  The product and shipping prices are fabulous!
