Hi - Hope you're enjoying our blitz and have picked up a bit of inspiration from all of our projects so far!  Jean Okimoto here with an unscheduled idea.  The day got off to a bumpy start, but it's turned around quite a bit - and I wanted to share this one with you.

Diecut Grand Joyeux Noel (save the little pieces inside the "e" and "o").  Attach Scor-Tape behind the "noel" - adhere the little pieces, then brush glitter onto the remaining adhesive through the cutouts.

Diecut Frosted Spruce tree from watercolor paper.  Leave it in the die and dry-emboss it for extra dimension.  

Attach adhesive label paper to red felt and diecut Resting Birds.  Attach everything to a Juniper Notecard and add some sequins.  A few timesaving techniques here - glittering, double-embossing, attaching felt to adhesive label paper to stabilize it and control the fuzzies.  That's it - quick, easy, clean and simple - QECS.

Love the colors you have selected for this card.

Great idea to use adhesive before die cutting. That's why I rely on you great designers for the ideas that make my cards look so great.

I LOVE the adorable white Christmas tree! What an adorable card!

I love the addition of the resting birds. Although my wish list of new dies is long, it is always nice to get ideas for dies I already own.

I too like the colors and design. It almost makes me think it's cool outside despite our Texas heat. Thanks for sharing your ideas.

Very pretty!

I fell in love with the curled ribbon die the first time I saw it...Fabulous!

Beautiful card! Love the new MB die cuts.

What a great Christmas card!

Adorable! Love that die cut and the glitter on the negative space. TFS

Love this die!

What a great idea to use glitter in the letters! Great!

Love the glitter behind the Noel- what a great idea!

Beautiful card! Love how you glittered the Noel part of the sentiment. And those cute fuzzy birds. Thanks for the tips too. Thanks for sharing.

Love it!

Wonderful card! And great tips as well. Thank you.

Such a pretty card. I love the font on this die and I love glitter so this is a great match-up!

Great non-traditional colors on this holiday card.

Nice on Jean. You make good use of those little birds.

What a wonderful clean and elegant design. Great colours, the little red birds really make it pop.

I am really loving all of your new Christmas dies. I always make my own Christmas cards so I will have to decide which dies I want to create my 50 cards.

Awesome die. Love the cardinals and the sequins-makes it a happy card!

It helps our budget that some of these dies can be used year-round just by changing the color of the cardstock.

Beautiful card, very elegant!

I love the card, the dies used, the design and thanks for the tips on techniques which I'm going to have to try, would love this die!
