Using negative die-cuts

It's no secret that I have loved using the Simon exclusive Eliza Snowflake this year, and I wanted to show that it's negative die-cut is just as lovely.  Here are a couple of cards that I made for my SSS sisters this year.  Both cards use Simon's Merry Christmas die also - just love that fun font!

Eliza Snowflake

This card used a Hero Arts Pool designer paper.

I like this pink and kraft combination.  This time I embossed my background panel with a Darice snowflake folder. 

This weekend, I am determined to get my Christmas cards addressed so that they can go out on Monday.  I know they'll arrive after Christmas, but at least I'll know I made the effort!  I seem to have been playing catch-up ever since our late Thanksgiving!
