DD #79

Hi! It's a perfectly gray, gloomy Pacific NW day today and a good day to make cards.

I just got this cute little tree border die and had some fun making cards yesterday afternoon. I really like how this card turned out using black and silver for this week's Dynamic Duos challenge.

This would have been much easier if I'd also had the pine background die that goes with the border die but SSS was out of stock. Ah well!  I first stamped the sentiment and then embossed the snow. Next I attached the black tree border using glue. I die cut the trees again out of silver paper. Before piecing in the silver pieces I pressed the embossed flakes within the tree outline down flat. My QuickStik tool was a lifesaver for picking up those tiny little pieces and putting them in place.

Well I'm only about half done with my Christmas cards. Lots more to make and I still have packing to do for our move next month. Back to it. Have a great day!

Stamps: 'Tis The Season Sentiments (PTI)
Paper: Basic Black (SU), White (PTI), silver
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Other: Pine Border Outline die (Memory Box), Dots #5 EF (Sizzix), Baker's twine

Edited:  WAHOO! My card was chosen as a Dynamic Duo Runner Up!
