Holiday Online Card Workshop Day 4

The online card class today was about finding ways to use the stamps you have in different ways.  I made a card similar to what Shari Carroll made today.  I used mostly Lawn Fawn products on this card.  The silver embossed snowflakes along the curved lines is a Simon Says Stamp border die. I curved the border die on my stamp press to be able to stamp along the edge.

I cut the curved lines with the Simon Says Stamp A2 die.  I absolutely love this die.  The curves are edged with paper  by cutting the curve and them moving it slightly and cutting again to get the edge. 

I added the small silver tree and I put some colored crystals on it so the tree would stand out.  I like the way this card turned out.

I also made another card because it seems I am unable to stop once I start.  I only stop because I have to cook dinner! 

The wreath is made with the little fir branch (or whatever it is) in the Peace Joy Love Lawn Fawn stamp. I am pretty sure it isn't meant to be used to make a wreath, so that is where I used the stamp in a different way.  :)  I stamped in two shades of green and embellished with some red pearls. The Merry is part of a die from Simon Says Stamp that I embossed in silver.  The papers are Lawn Fawn.  I just added a small bow from bakers twine.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!


  1. Love the wreath. I tried to make an xmas tree.

  2. Great cards! Glad to hear you like the curved die. I've been thinking about it but wasn't sure I'd really use it. I love the Merry cut then embossed. I did my snowflake like that.

  3. Looks great! Now, I think I might need that curved die!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
