Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

On Saturday, I attended a fun class at Buffalo Stamps and Stuff which was
given by Jenny Griffiths featuring Memory Box Christmas Dies.

I have always loved these dies, but the holiday dies are wonderful.
We made a fun Halloween card and three Christmas cards.

Today, I am featuring one of the dies (which was not one we used in the class I took)
but that I completely fell in love with.  It's the Have a jolly Christmas (99016)

To show you how versatile this die is I made two cards, one elegant, and one whimsical. 

Same die done two different ways.

Both cards started with the die cut out in white card stock.

Base card is light blue card stock, mat of POM light blue glitter paper and two strips of gold POM glitter paper.  Left this one pretty simple, Just cut a circle to put behind the ornament with the gold glitter paper and
applied clear rhinestones to the snowflakes.

The second card, I wanted to have a whimsical feel to it. Base card is red card stock. I used scraps from
my scrap box of green dotted and red and white striped paper.  I just die cut out the word holly and the holly leaves with the green paper.  Behind the word Jolly I cute a strip of paper.  Cut the ornament out of
blue mirror paper and the snowflake from white.  I used crystals in blue on the snowflakes.  The word jolly is coated with glossy accents for detail,  A strip of rickrack in green at the bottom finishes the card off.

Lots of beautiful new dies in this new line......
Thanks Sharon for bringing in Jenny all the way from California, I loved the class I took and had such a good time with the other ladies

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a great day.
Until later.............
