Christmas Joy


There's a brand new challenge called "Anything Goes with a Twist" and it's being sponsored by Deedee's digis this week. Since there was no twist for this challenge, I made a Christmas card. I used a pre-colored digi image from Deedee's Ornamental Icy set, fussy cutting and popping the ornament up on foam tape on some Island Indigo card stock. The Memory Box pine needle border was done with silver metallic card stock, and so was the Quickutz "Joy!" sentiment. The final touch was adding some silver metallic ribbon to the top.

I'm also entering this into the ScrapyLand #3 challenge which is "anything goes using a brand of die that they sell." My card was made with Memory Box and Quickutz dies.

Thanks for stopping by, and make it a great day!

Love that pine border die! I have the little sprigs of pine, but they do not compare to the dramatic presence the border gives this card! Gorgeous, Carol!

This is very pretty, Carol. It brings to mind that pretty card you made in red with that pretty border. I think it's one of the cards that I have always liked the best of your cards. Have it pinned to my cards board on pinterest...and it's probably one of my most repinned pins...(A lot of other people sure like your card too!)

I confess that I don't really understand a lot of these Memory Box edge border dies like this one, but then you go and do this and it is like D'oh! How did I not see the potential?!!! This is a lovely card.
