Christmas Carols for Dies R Us


The theme at Dies R Us is "Christmas Carol." I went with Joy to the World...one of my favorites.

The card set I made is VERY simple! I used just 2 dies and a sentiment. The main die is from Sue Wilson called, "Wise Men mini striplet." I think it's just gorgeous and so elegant!





                                          I've cut it out in SO many colors, but for this set
 I used purple and blue shimmer paper.





I added some white holly with silver berries from Cheery Lynn to complete the card. The sentiment is from CAS-Friday's Snowy Sayings. 





I made a ton of these! I also made them for a couple card groups too.


Here's a list of the dies I used:



I hope you will join us for this fun challenge at Dies R Us!

What a great card idea for making a lot of cards at once. I still need to get the holly die from CL as I've seen you use it a few times and love it. I always get so much inspiration from you, Laurie!

Gorgeous set of cards in lovely color! Beautiful scene with the wise men and addition of the holly! Wonderful card...love it!!

Leslie Miller said...

One of the many things I find inspiring about your cards is the way you mix up sizes -- giant holly die against the detailed striplet, for instance. I wouldn't think to do that, but I love it! I see how easily you could make up a bunch of these in different colors. Gorgeous!

These are just so beautiful Laurie. I like how you have placed the holly over the striplet. very classy and I am sure a winner in any colour way.

That holly is so big, I am not sure how I would have used it. Pair it with the wise men was a little bit of brilliance. Very pretty!
