Merry Christmas

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Sweet 'n Sassy blog. It's Mary Marsh here and my day to post on the blog. 

I am using the just released set "Christmas Light" designed by the amazing Dina Kowal. This set has a matching die. Can that make card making any easier?

I water colored my image and then popped it up on a lacy circle die. My sentiment is also from this same set and it was stamped and then embossed. I used gold metallic paper so the embossing helped my red ink to show up a little better.

I used another new die on this card. It's the Cheery Lynn "lace light" border die. Korin is now carrying dies from this company in the store. They cut with such great detail. I used a maraschino cardstock to cut the border and the circle.

My striped designer paper is something I have had in my stash for years. I couldn't match it up with just the right paper. Today it all worked. Love it when that happens-don't you?
I had the right gold paper to layer it and the green card base is Bazzill "ivy" . The maraschino was just the shade of red to work with the green.

Well, I hope I have provided you with some inspiration today. It's time to get a start on your cards for Christmas and our release this month can help you do just that. Check the entire line here.

That's it for me so until next time..........God bless
