I needed a Christmas card and had very little time to create one, so I turned to my Cuttlebug and some Memory Box dies that I had just received. This was my first time using Memory Box dies and I am very impressed with them. I will be buying more!
I used a color scheme of aqua and red for this card. The polka dot paper is from My Mind’s Eye Merry & Bright collection. The card matches a project that I will be posting soon, made from the same collection.
The white cardstock is Stardream Metallic White Gold and I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Snow Flurries. I inked the edges in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.
Three Memory Box dies were used to create the ornament — the Classic Ornament die, the Snowflake Ornament die and the Crisp Bows die. I used glitter cardstock for the snowflake part of the ornament and for the bow. The background of the ornament is Stardream Aquamarine cardstock. The die cut pieces are very intricate (and delicate), so I ran them through my Xyron to adhere them.
And that’s all I did — this was a very quick card for me. I’m entering this card in the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge, which is to make a Christmas project using non-traditional colors.
