Cherish the Season

 The Cherish the Season bundle is the focus for todays Christmas Card!  I shose to use red, white, and silver as my colour palette.  The dies for this set are so detailed and I love that you can add the Holly leaves and berries right into your bell die cut images.

To add more silver to my card I used the Silver Foil edged cards & envelopes that have unfortunately been retired.  It made an easy card base by adding some Designer Series Paper and then my die cut images to the front of the card.

I cut the leaves from Garden Green and used the Red Rhinestone jewels to add the berries to the bells.

For the bows I used the Silver Bakers Twine (retired) and added Real Red reinker to colour it.  I found some retired Garden Green twine in my drawer, so I tied the 2 twines together to make the bows.

I made 3 small gift boxes using the gift card holders as the front and back . I cut them apart and the front was stamped using Cinnamon Cider ink. I used the cute candy embellishments that were included in the kit.

Clear Tiny Treat box that I added Cinnamon Cider ribbon (side view).

Sweetest Time

 For todays project I used the Sweetest Time bundle.  I have to admit it was the dies in this bundle that caught my attention and thus here is one of my recent creations.  I think the dies on their own make for a very festive card!

I chose to use the Red Foil paper for the die cut pieces as it gave the card front alot of shine.  Using a very simple sentiment in Real Red adds just enough to the card front!
