For my first card, I used the gorgeous new Merry Mosaics dies & the new Windowsill Candles. Don’t they elegant in the mirror gold c/s & arranged around the holiday window scene?
After die cut them in the mirror gold, I also used it for the window frame dies. I used the window background part of the die to cut the scene w/ the Christmas tree from the ODBD Christmas 2014 paper. I added the window to the white brick embossed front, added my layered poinsettia & the little greeting. For the gold backing around the greeting, I used one of the Mini Tag dies, cut one end, then flipped the die around and cut a mirror image end.
I love the look of this mirror gold, but it is a BEAR to photograph! It is so shiny & beautiful but it really freaks out the light levels on the camera. Anyway, hopefully you can see it well enough & here’s a look at the inside.

My second card features the lovely Peaceful Deer set along with the holly part of the Christmas Candle die.
After stamping the scene w/ Memento & coloring with Copics, I over stamped w/ Versafine (it was still in my Misti).I die cut the white frame topper & the dp under layer & attached them on top. I only used one line of the greeting & used one of the smallest matting basics to die cut it. The Christmas Candle was die cut a few times out of gold metallic paper & I trimmed off the candles & made a holly spray on top and underneath the scene. Stickles was added to snowy areas for a little sparkle.
Here’s a look at the inside using leftover die cuts from the front & below it are the Copics I used. For the greeting, I stamped the deer w/ Brilliance gold then stamped the greeting on top using the sepia Versafine.
