My first card uses Merry & Bright, Snowflake Sky die (part as a stencil, Christmas Lights dies from this release, plus Pierced Rectangles and Rectangles.

I cut a piece of cardstock with Snowflake Sky, then air brushed over it, using it as a stencil for my background. The red border is the largest die in that set, I love it!

The Christmas lights from Merry & Bright are colored with a marker and clear embossed for some added “sparkle”, cut with Christmas Lights and popped up.

I stamped the greeting using a stamp positioner.

My next card uses Jingle Bell Time, Snowflake Season Collection, Snowflake Sky from this release and also, Christmas Candles (holly), Fancy Foliage (pine cone), Lovely Leaves and Lavish Layers.

The beautiful Snowflake Sky makes a wonderful background on its own or layered as I did here! Just a beautiful die!
