A Grand Merry Christmas

I have way underused this wonderful Memory Box die.

It works wonderfully with some of that hoard stash of decorative paper
that I need to whittle down.

I simply die cut from Whisper White, embossed a strip below and
added a Spellbinder's poinsettia that I've sponged color on.

Love the way you set the sentiment die right at the top. The dps is perfect with that band of dry embossing and the lovely ribbon.

Loll said...

So pretty. Great way to use some patterned paper behind your die-cut sentiment. And LOVE that you've added the same dark red with a piece of ribbon under your poinsettia. Fantastic design Bonnie!! xx

I keep telling myself I don't need that die - but it's so pretty and yes, I probably do "need" it! Love your card Bonnie!

Carol L said...

That really is a great die, and I love the papers you used with it! I love the contrast of the pink poinsettia too!

MaryH said...

Love that embossed border and of course the die letters at the top of the white piece. That lush pink poinsettia is wonderful - great job on that. I also liked the deep red tones behind the sentiment cut - it looks super with the pink of the pretty poinsettia. Great composition & use of elements, color & texture on this one. TFS & Hugs

What a stunner - love this bold and beautiful sentiment Bonnie, and the way you have used it is great.

JoAnn said...

So pretty. Love that die cut and the way you added the embossed strip below it. The poinsettia is so pretty in pink. I know exactly what you mean about the (hoard) stash of DSP.

So gorgeous, love how you die cut the sentiment, and the little Poinsettia with all the greenery and beautiful bow is a very sweet detail.
Thank you for sharing.

This is a lovely card with the bright poinsettia and pattern paper. I love that die. I'm trying to catch up with everyone's blogs so I scrolled back on yours and you have some great cards. My favorites are the coffee cup and gingerbread boy, the autumn leaves and the paper pieced flower. I think I will skip over fall cards and go straight to Christmas. I do love fall colors tho, so I'll see what kind of time I have.
