DECEMBER's cards galore with DIE-VERSIONS

hello crafty friends!

can you believe it is almost the end of DECEMBER already?! and i still have a few creations to share with you. this post will be all about DIE-VERSIONS and their FANTASTIC dies!


my first card is a CHRISTMAS one of course - 


i used red cardstock for the base. then i cut a slightly smaller piece of golden cardstock, distressed its edges with brownish ink and layered the image on top of it.

for my sentiment i used IE-VEDRSIONS' sweet wordlets "SEASONS's GREETINGS" die. i die cut the phrase from white shimmering cardstock and i used one of the words as it is...

... then added white chunky glitter to the other one and adhered it to the bottom of my card.


for my second card i chose to create an any occasion card - 


i used a white card base, which i altered with TIM HOLTZ tea dye distress ink. then i adhered two layers of pattern paper on top of it and start arranging my design.

i used pattern paper to die cut the frame {sweet frames "HELLO" die} and inked its edges to make it pop out from the background. for the owlette i used WHISPERS "little owlette" die and brown cardstock.

to finish off my design i added rhinestones and paper roses.


my third card i created for a very special little girl and of course it had to be all pink and glittery - 


i used sweet frames "SMILE" die and whispers "MAGIC WAND" die. to create this card i used only colored cardstock, no pattern paper. 

i adhered all layers with mounting foam tape and added rhinestones and a ribbon bow to finish off my design.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!

all the BEST! and i see you again in 2015!
