Grateful - Woodland Tree Silhouette

Good Morning, I'm over on the Memory Box Blog today I have for you a card using the Woodland Tree Silhouette 98969.  This really is the most versatile die and it cuts beautifully out of so many materials.  Today for the background I have used strips of fall colored card stock in 0.5 inch strips and layered the Woodland Tree Silhouette over it.  Once it was complete I used the Script Lowercase Alphabet 98896 to add the word "grateful" to the card, in Gold Mirror Card.  This would be so perfect for Fall or Thanksgiving Cards.  This is also a wonderful way to used up scraps too and you could change the theme according to what you have on hand or what type of card you need.  Hope you get a chance to give it a try!  Have a Wonderful Day! .
Leave a comment on the Memory Box Blog for a chance to win a die.  Contest closes October 26th.

Fall Thanks - Memory Box Card - Discovering Die Cuts Today





Good Morning, I'm over on the Memory Box Blog today.  With another Fall Thank You card, since Fall is officially here not only in date but also just with the weather.  It's time to begin staying in and crafting on gloomy, rainy, cold days. 

For this card I used the Elliana Background 98956 which is cut out of Gold Mirror Card.  I pieced together a background fall colored strips of cardstock and popped up the Elliana Background with foam tape over the handmade background.    I layered some of the Marvelous Maple Leaves 98766 in the bottom right corner using the Fall Colored Cardstock found in the background then I cut the Thanks Cloud 98875 on top of the leaves to make the word pop.

The card is a standard A2 Card and measures 4.25" x 5.5".   The Elliana Background 98956 measures 4.25" x 5.5" as well  so it completely covers the card.  I love the idea of creating your own background with this die, not just piecing paper but also stamping or many die cuts as well as patterned paper, fabric, ribbon etc.  Use up your scraps.  Depending on what colors and textures you choose this die could go for any Season, Holiday or Event.

Memory Box Items used on this card -
Elliana Background 98956
Thanks Cloud 98875
Marvelous Maple Leaves 98766

Also Used -

Sweet Candy Canes


DiecutsJuly2014c
Good Morning how is everyone today? I'm over on the Memory Box Blog today with a FUN Christmas Card using the Sweet Candy Canes 98913 with shimmery red candy stripes.  The finished card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" a standard A2 card.
 
The first step is to cut the Candy Canes, out of white cardstock and then out of the red shimmer paper.  With detail scissors cut little strips of the red shimmer candy canes adhere to the white. If you like you can cut the strips on an angle for a more authentic Candy Cane look.  Don't forget to add the Ornament Hooks and Caps 98958  to turn the candy canes into ornaments.  I have glass ornaments that look like these on my tree every year they are some of my most treasured decorations to put on the tree.
 
The sentiments are Christmas from the Grand Merry Christmas 98938 the part that pops out and wishes is cut individually from Alphabet Soup 98795 with the black mirror card. The Christmas fits just perfect across and A2 card no matter which way you set up your card Landscape or Portrait and you can make another card with the remaining piece.
 
The entire card is done with just a bit of cutting and gluing.  The Bluebird Distress Dots with Christmas red is my favorite color combination for the Winter Holidays, I know again.  So the Bluebird Distressed Dots became my background and for an accent I have added some black mirror card tuxedo stripes.  The entire thing is mounted on a red card base.  They are almost yummy enough to eat don't you think?  
 
I hope you like it. Hope you have a Wonderful Day Today.  Thank You for stopping by.
