One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Make It Monday #37: Layered Mats and Frames

It took me all week to try to come up with a design...I wanted to use the Half & Half Dies, but I didn't want to cut it all the way through...so I laid the die on my paper, and marked where I wanted to stop and set the die off the paper...then I ran it through the die cutter and stopped at my mark.  I then used a craft knife to cut off the end of the piece...I stamped a Christmas sentiment on pink paper and stamped a row of holly at the bottom. Then I very carefully laid the smallest of the Holly Jolly dies in the two top corners and cut them out.  I attached this to an avocado green paper and added some berries with a hole punch.  I cut out two more sets of holly and added them at the bottom of the card...I adhered this layer to Pure Poppy CS and then to the Rustic White Card.

  1. I love the way this turned out. Pretty creative die cutting there! The colors are a great choice also. :)
