Lots of die cuts!


Hi everyone!

I decided to make a Christmas card today and found a few challenges for inspiration. 

Merry Monday...(added a tiny heart)


Poppystamps (a day in a WINTER park)

Challenge Badge copy

Memory Box Challenge (Frostyville border)

Challenge icons


Christmas card challenge (anything goes)



Jingle Belles vintage or retro (village)





My card front is ALL dies which is not unusual for me, as they are my favorite thing!

I used Poppystamps  Forest Village and Memory Box Frostyville border die. The frame is from Obsession Impression, and the snow Lawn Fawns stitched landscape dies. The small heart remains a mystery. I found it on my desk and thought it went perfectly with the sentiment, but I have NO idea what die I had used for it!

I used some retired Stampin Up designer paper I found in my stash ...I just LOVE the soft pretty snowflake background! Inside I stamped with another retired stamp from SU, "Home for Christmas." It's one of my all time favorites!!! I also added Poppy Stamps Frozen Flakes and Cherry Lynns winter neighborhood die.



I had SO much fun playing with my dies today!





Have a great day!

To tell you the truth I am not sure if I like the inside or the outside better, I love the paper on the front and the amazing scene you created. Every time I try something like this I don.t have the right sizes and the dimension gets all wonky. I love the dies you chose and how they created such elegant scenes.

What a wonderful combination of dies, Laurie! They look like they were made for each other! Love how that little heart pops with all the soft blue and white! Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!

Stunning in every way! Your cards are exceptional. I have not thought of combining dies the way you have done. You have inspired me to try something a little different.

Very pretty with all the die cuts.

I LOVE the lacy look of all your die cutting!!! The pop of red the heart offers is a nice contrast to the cool blue/white color scheme. It's neat how you continued the die cutting on the inside, too. Tfs! ~ Andrea
