Let's start with Andrea who is working with dies to create this festive card. With layers of paper from the Christmas Cheer collection, this card uses both label and border dies. To create the stamped trees, simply use the arrow stamp from the Autumn Spice collection (just the end of it) for the trunk of the tree and the polka dot pennant from the Christmas Cheer clear stamp set as the tree.
I (Ursula) was feeling the layer love for my first card. I took a standard white base and started adding brightly colored pennants, die cuts and some wood veneer to complete the look. Inspired by the colors of my bathroom towels, I found fushia, red, aqua and green to create a modern festive look. A little ink on the edges helped the pale pieces pop.
Add a little sparkle with glitter paper and a gem and you have a card that is quick and lovely to look at.
This next card uses the same palette, but in a very different manner. I sewed together strips of the colored papers and then layered them behind a star cut out, mounting the strips to the card with the pop dots to create dimension.

Finally, Danielle added her beautiful touch. Danielle says 'I love making pocket cards, they are great for the holidays to hang on the tree as a little gift card holder. I cut a frame shape with my die cut machine from the Christmas Cheer paper (one piece for the front and one for the back of the pocket) and adhered the edges, leaving the top open for goodies. The front is decorated with a Christmas Cheer journaling card, heart punched from the Christmas Cheer paper and a "Merry Christmas" sentiment stamped with the Christmas Cheer stamps. Tuck in some candy canes, confetti and either a gift card or holiday photo for the recipient!'
Happy Card Making!
