There are coordinating stamps to go with this set, but I wanted to try and see what a card would look like with just using the die. Without the details the stamps would provide, looking at the die, I thought a silhouette image would work. The blue was brayed on with a "Blue Breeze" Kalidacolor pad. To add more depth to the images, matte silver paper was also die cut and layered behind the black. Think the only thing I'd do different on the next card is to put the legs of the deer behind the ground pieces. Other than that, this works for me.

This card used a foil printed paper on the front as well as a dry embossed paper which was cut with an oval die. The words are from a Memory Box die. The candle was die cut first and then stamped. It is a very close image to the cut, but I didn't find matching them up to be a problem. Color was added with Copics to the the candle. Ok, will move on to other cards tomorrow. But, may show some more variations of this card in the future.

Sweet n' Sassy has this candle with several word sentiments. It also has a matching die. The words are all one stamp, and the greetings are from yet another set by S n' S. Two other dies were also used for this card. The oval is part of a set by My Favorite Things and the grid is by Memory Box. The color was added with Copics. Didn't do as many cards with the candle, but had more fun doing them because I did each card differently. So here is a great set for those who want multiple cards but don't like the monotony of doing the same card repeatedly. I'll show a few more of the variations of this over the next couple of days.

This is the second type of card I made while away. The words are a brand new die by Memory Box. The star and die for the star, are by Hero Arts. The star was die cut first and then the stamp was added. It was inked with Momento "Bamboo". I put a grid on my cutting board which made the word die much easier to do. Kicked out about 40 of these cards. One more type of Christmas card to show tomorrow.

While at the beach, I focused a lot on Christmas cards. This is the first one. The word is all one die cut done on silver mirror paper. It was mounted onto a dry embossed paper. Some more mirror paper is behind the embossed paper. Happily, it was a pretty easy card to do.
