It's Christmas Time in the City...


(click to see full size)

Welcome to my post for today's edition of the Merry and Bright Memory Box Blog Blitz!

*** This is one of the cards I'll be teaching in Sacramento, CA the weekend of August 3rd and 4th!  It would be so awesome to meet you!  If you're in the area join us for some creating fun!***  HERE is the store newsletter with all the class info...

Another nostalgic Christmas scene that brings back memories of growing up in the city.  Oh I had fun creating this card!  When I first saw the new release I spent hours pouring over what I could do with them all!  When they got here, I had to adjust a little but in the end,  I'm so happy with everything I've made so far!  I hope they inspire you and add creative energy to your day!  : )




I created a step card with the NEW Bella Dress Form, Sevington Border, Snowflake Sprig (I cut off and used the holly), Star Flourish and the NEW stamp 'It's Christmas Time in the City'.

To create the whole scene, I incorporated some dies from the past too, the Small Dress Form, Cityscape Nightline, Tiny Bow, Flower Mound and Fairytale Flower.

On the inside I used the NEW Gift Bag die, the top hat from the Holiday Hats die, 'have yourself a merry little Christmas' stamp and Washi Tape Stripes stamp.

Hope you love it and come to class if you can!!!  : )

May your Christmas card creating in July be Merry and Bright!

*** p.s. remember to comment for a chance to win the NEW Star Flourish die!!! ***



Wow, what a fantastic die!

I love the vintage look of your card. I grew up in the city too!

What fabulous components you used on this card! I will be owning these one way or another!

I never would have thought to combine the dress form with the skyline. Love it!

I love the sevington border and cityscape background. So versatile.

Amazing card and love your combination of the various dies - thanks for sharing !

I never would have thought of putting the dress with the landscape for a Christmas card, but it works!

I think that cityscape is my favourite of all the dies at the moment, must buy it! Thank you, maddy x

What a fun and unusual Christmas card! Love the dress form all done for the holidays!

Cheerful and fun.

Beautiful card - love the different colors for Christmas! The Star Flourish is definitely on my "wish list!" Thanks for a chance to win!

The new star flourish die is awesome! I'm sure there are lots of uses for it!

Wow this is striking!

This is gorgeous! I love the contrast of the black and white and the dress form is sweet!
Hugs, antonella :-)

What a lovely card. Clever to use the cityscape nightline doubled to show more buildings. Love the contrast of the bright green.

I love how dimensional your card is and the great use of dies. Just beautiful!

I absolutely love your design. So new and fresh. Would love to take your class but a trip to CA is not in the budget.

What a perfect non-traditional Christmas card! Really beautifully done!!!

Such a wonderful combination of dies! I love this mod Christmas card.

WOW! LOVE the details! GREAT card!

Love the modern look here. Christmas yes, but a different sentiment and it would be suitable for so many occasions. Love the dress form

The Star Flourish die is amazing - and so versatile! Could be used for birthday, celebration, congratulations, encouragement - so many possibilities! Judy D.
