WOW! Can you believe it? A week from today will be Christmas Day!!
Ready or Not, here it comes!!
Today I have a fun card I created for the December challenge for Memory Box.
Their theme is:
I have so many beautiful Memory Box dies with trees that it was really difficult to decide which one to use and how to use it on a card! My possibilities were many! But I finally decided to use this Memory Box 'Simple Evergreen Frame' as my starting point (#99243). I have cut a couple scrap panels of white card stock and then torn the top to create my 'snowy' ground cover. This regal buck is also a Memory Box die from past years called 'Woodland Deer' (#98679).
These dies were both from last year and I don't see where they are still available but there are many more that are similar that could be used to recreate this design. Doesn't it figure ... of all the dies I have in my stash, I would choose two that are no longer available ... Grrrr! The one Memory Box die I did use and is still available is the Delicate Pine Frame (#94031). I didn't use the entire die set ... just the birds.
After die cutting my frame 'twice', I glued them together and then cut a medium blue card stock panel the same size as my die to use for my background sky. Using a white gellyroll pen I created the snow. This beautiful buck had plenty of room for my birds to perch ... that way they didn't have to deal with all the snow on the pine trees! LOL
