Blog Blitz: Merry Christmas x Two!

Welcome to Day Two of the Memory Box Blog Blitz for the second half of the 2014 Holiday release!

The blitz extends through Friday with two posts per day. You have until 11:00 p.m. EST on Sunday, October 26th, to leave comments, from which winners will be randomly drawn and announced on Monday, October 27th.

I made two cards because I'm so enjoying the Woodland Tree Silhouette die. The first card was originally made for my guest designer spot at Simon Says Stamp last week, but then I found out they didn't have the Merry Christmas to All die in stock, so I had to change things up a bit.

So, for your viewing pleasure, I give you my original Merry Christmas in silver (even though in this light it looks green - see the second picture for its true color):

Silver Merry Christmas: Cardstock: 110 lb (Neenah), wine and silver shimmer; Dies: Woodland Tree Silhouette, Merry Christmas to All, Alphabet Soup, Resting Birds (Memory Box); Stencil: Winter Tiny Snowflakes (Memory Box); Inks: Silvery Shimmer Delicata, Silver Encore Ultimate Metallic (Imagine Crafts); Gems (Mark Richards); Other: foam dimensional squares; Tools: Ink Blusher sponges (Imagine Crafts)

And Merry Christmas in lilac (again, the lighting is much better for picture number 2):

Lilac Merry Christmas: Cardstock: 110 lb (Neenah), shimmer, "mirror"; Dies: Woodland Tree Silhouette, Merry Christmas to All, Alphabet Soup, Precious Ornaments, Ho Ho Holly Leaves (Memory Box); Pearls (Reflections); Sequins (Cartwright)


Pin It

  1. Make 4.25" x 5.5" card base with horizontal fold.
  2. For silver card: adhere card to craft mat with low-tack tape; repeat with Winter Tiny Snowflakes stencil; pounce with ink and heat set. For lilac card: adhere patterned paper to card front.
  3. Die cut Woodland Tree Silhouette and adhere.
  4. Die cut letters from Alphabet Soup and snip "Christmas" from Merry Christmas to All; adhere to bottom of card.
  5. For silver card: die cut birds and adhere with dimensional tape. For lilac card: die cut and adhere ornament and holly leaves.
  6. For silver card: adhere gems. For lilac card: adhere sequins and pearls.
  • If you don't have silver shimmer cardstock, apply Delicata Shimmery Silver ink directly to the paper and heat set - it's identical to shimmer paper.
  • Use the tips of your detail scissors to cut out words to stretch your dies' versatility! ("Christmas" was snipped from the rest of the die cut below.)


Don't forget we're having two posts per day (check back later today to see what amazing project our Pam's devised). AND don't forget to leave comments on the designer posts this week for a chance to win prizes.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!

Very pretty, simple cards. I really like the tree done in silver!

Beautiful cards! I can see lots of possibilities for this die---all seasons!

The color palette you used on these cards is so refreshing. Nice change up from traditional Christmas colors. Very pretty.

Such pretty cards with unexpected colors. I love this die!

Another great tree card

your cards are sensational! I LOVE the touches of silver and I appreciate you letting me know that Neenah has other colors in the card stock line...I always use the white and never think to look for more. I must buy these dies now because my daughter LOVES purple and we LOVE her so much I knew the moment I saw your lilac card I had to make one for her. The addition of the heart ornament is perfection. TFS.

Both are so pretty Deborah! TFS

The cards are super gorgeous and I absolutely love the tree die. It is awesome
