Snowy Scene Christmas Card

Hi  It is close to Christmas and you need one more card . Need a quick one? Well here it is.

Some snowflake paper matted onto black and a winter scene in the center make a super quick base. I picked three dies to fancy up this card. The tree on the bottom is one of the dies from the Merry Christmas w/ Tree Sentiment  set.

Along the top I layered the Icicles Border . The snowflake is one of the snowflakes from the Snowflake Set 2 set. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the Merry Christmas w/ Tree Sentiment . Now how quick is that. Between the wintery scene and the Christmas sentiment it really has a feel of a Winter Wonderland Christmas to it. I hope this will give you some ideas when you need a quick card.

Thank You for follower my blog the last year and for all the comments you left.

I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2017. Enjoy the festivities my friends.

Merry Christmas Card

A warm Hello to you today. Nice to see you here. I am  sharing  a Christmas card with you today.

I have always like the design of this style of card. You can really get lots of depth and layers with these card bases.

Just look at these beautiful Christmas Bells   with the bow that Cheery Lynn Designs release a short while ago for this Christmas season. There are more dies in this set as well.

Here I have used the Merry Christmas layered on the back of the base. I have layered part of the Winter Neighborhood Border on the back layer. The  Poinsettia I have off set and layered onto the first and second layer of the card. A few beads were added to the center of the poinsettias. I hope I have inspire you to try out creating cards with different styles of card bases. The dies always look great on these styles of cards.
Thanks for visiting my blog and for the comments you leave. Have a wonderful day.

Birthday Wishes with Roses

A warm hello to you. Today I have created a card using some beautiful roses that I had previously made that were in my stash.  This is a birthday card for all who have birthday in December when things get hectic. We want to make sure we celebrate them birthdays too.  So here is a birthday card for you before I post more Christmas cards.

I started with a grey marbled piece of paper matted onto black cardstock. I then layered the Quatrefoil A2 Frame in the center. For the two corners I layered the Ornament #9 .  The Birthday Wishes Circle  was layered onto the lower corner of the card. This gave me a nice base to start building my flower arrangement .

Here is a close up of the flower arrangement. I started by layering the Mini Fanciful Flourish , Rose Leaf Strip , Floral Bouquet Kit , Mini Flourish One Die as filler to place the roses on. I then layered the Large Rose  and the medium- Rose on top. With a red feather tucked in behind it all it finished the card off nicely. I hope I have inspired you to play with some flowers. Cheery Lynn Designs has a huge selection of flowers , leaves and flourishes to choose from. Mixing and matching them together makes for  beautiful flower arrangements.
