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 The first card was originally made for my guest designer spot at Simon Says Stamp last week, but then I found out they didn't have the Merry Christmas to All die in stock, so I had to change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):

2014-10-10---MB---Merry-Xmas

T I P S
  • 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.)
