Holiday Window cu 07530

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?
Holiday Window 07531
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.

Holiday Window side 07538I 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.

Peace on Earth cu 07549
My second card features the lovely Peaceful Deer set along with the holly part of the Christmas Candle die. 
Peace on Earth 07551After 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.
