Happy Holidays

This is my post on the 
Dies R Us blog today!!

We are getting closer and closer to
'The Big Day"....
do you have all your Christmas cards made yet??
There is still plenty of get busy!!

The card I have to show you today was 'built'
entirely around the snippet of paper you see on the left!

I added a pretty edge to the side of it (listed below),
embossed the other side and went from there.

Next came the snowflake doily, so prettily detailed.

The bird is a Stampendous stamp colored with Copics,
then cut out with a stitched circle.

I cut the holly from a scrap piece and also from a white craft foam,
which gives it a lot of dimension on the card.
I added a few cranberry pearls  and to finish I added a
pretty bow using RRR ribbon.

Here are the dies I used:
Impression Obsession Border Duo 2
Cheery Lynn Designs Holly Flourish
Wild Rose Studio Snow Doily (currently out of stock)
