Details,Texture and Shine for your Holiday Designs


HI - Jean Okimoto back again - with another simple holiday card for you.  I love how easy it is to combine elements from the different collections to create refreshing new designs.  The Classic Ornament 98211 outline and ornament cap set and everyone's favorite Debutante Frame 98297 are from earlier releases.


Here are the dies from the 2013 Merry and Bright Collection:

  • Swirl Ornament 98735
  • A Batch of Gingerbread 98652
  • Gwyneth Flourish 98634

I love how Memory Box dies work perfectly with specialty papers too - like gold mirror cardstock for the ornament cap and gingerbread guys and red mirror cardstock for the Swirl Ornament.  The Classic Ornament base is cut from velvet paper - creating a rich, plush backdrop for the intricate Swirl Ornament.

Combining textures and finishes - like velvety and metallic - adds easy, layered contrasts and dimension to any design.  Click on 'Read more' for details and supply lists.

Thanks for visiting - make a few quick cards for your holiday stash.  Working on them in batches makes it a lot easier - and you'll be rewarded with great greetings in December.
