We Wish You...

Cooler days that what we are currently having in Colorado...or we could just wish you a Merry Christmas!  Let's go with the Merry Christmas theme.

Good morning Memory Box fans.  I do hope your day is going well.  We had a wonderfully fun Memory Box Christmas card class last weekend using the new release Holiday dies.  And along the way everyone got a little inky and learned a new technique or two!

Augustclasswe wish you

This is one of the cards we made using the brand spankin' new We Wish you die.  The white cardstock was inked with some green and red Distress inks and then die cut.  The poinsettia portion of the die was cut again with red cardstock and then inlaid with into the die.

The background was an idea I used from a class taught by Tammy Tutterow.  She is a fabulous teacher with a plethora of amazing ideas.  Below is a video to show the steps used in class to create the background for this card.  Bear with me as I'm dusting off my video editing skills and basically talking to myself as I'm recording!

 

I hope you've enjoyed today's post!

love the background of this card.

Great when you include tutorials....just this week, I've been learning about these paints/stains, etc. I've never been one to distress much, but I do want to expand my horizons. TFS your card...great die.

Beautiful card! Thanks for the video tutorial!

Love the colour scheme... and the background :)
Very pretty card :)

I'm glad you liked the video...I have a couple of more up my sleeve:)
