Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day to everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful day with your family yesterday, if you celebrate Christmas.  We had a very lovely day here — the kids surprisingly were not up at the crack of dawn.  Prior to going to bed (willingly, mind you!) on Christmas Eve, my son told me he was going to wake me up and I would have to get up early.  Guess who was the first one awake?  Not my son, but me!  LOL!

Today I have the card I made for my Christmas card making get-together last month.  I thought I had designed a CAS card, but my friends will tell you it was missing the Simple.  LOL!

My Memory Box window dies had been sitting, neglected for quite some time and I have seen so many lovely cards made with them. I decided to go with a mainly white card with those muted pops of green.  I stamped the Impression Obsession tree in green ink on my white card base — masking it slightly to keep the star and base from peeking out of the window.  The swirled ribbon is glittered with Holo Iridescent and some rhinestone centers of the snowflakes.  While the ribbon dried, I added acetate to my window die cut and punched out curtains from designer paper — using my oval punch, cutting 4 half ovals.  Once the ribbon was dry, I put the window down, popping it up on dimensionals.  A simple sentiment of Merry Christmas was stamped under the window.
