Sending Christmas Joy

 I bought this die late last year and used it mininally, so this year I have more time to play with all the options it presents!  I've got 3 versions for you today.

supplies: Schoolhouse Red card, candy cane patterned paper, My Favorite Things Sending Christmas Joy die, and Christmas Cardinals stamp, adhesive foam squares 

For this card, I cut the words from red card, then used the negative die-cut to glue them into place over my patterned paper.  Then I just lifted the bird above the card.

For these next two, the die was cut from patterned paper, then attached to a solid backing before I added my embellishments.

supplies: Green Leaf card, glitter card in 2 greens, red, and gold, a Christmas tree dp, MFT Sending Christmas Joy die and a long retired Simon Christmas Tree die and star die, adhesive foam squares

supplies: Lipstick Red and kraft card, reindeer patterned paper, MFT Sending Christmas Joy and Simon Retro Deer die, a tiny red pearl for his nose, adhesive foam squares

As I said, the options are endless for embellishing these simple cards - holly, snowmen, santas, snowflakes!  And the bonus is that I got to use some of my patterned papers!

Happy Friday!  How are you coming with your Christmas cards?

Three terrific versions of using this die! I think the first one with the candy canes in the background and that cute little red bird is my favorite!
