White Christmas

Today I wanted to share with you a white-on-white card using the new Impression Obsession Tree Line Die (DIE027-P).  I paired it with a textured background created with the Sizzix Large Christmas Words embossing folder.  I wasn't sure at first about layering white-on-white, but I think the texture helps separate the two elements.

IO Challenge- Halloween!

Today the IO designers are sharing Halloween cards with you.  I have a feeling that a bunch of us will be using the new Halloween Hill die (DIE029-P) because it is awesome!  It cuts out the hill along with all the elements you see attached.  There are also a few bats, but I didn't include them in this card.

The card I am showing you is so quick and easy to make.  In fact, it is one of the ten cards I will be doing in my 10 in 10 Halloween class tomorrow at Angela's.  The class is all about making cards that can be done in ten minutes or less.  For this card, I cut out the hill and punched out a yellow circle.  When I layered the card, I made sure to put the yellow moon behind the house and pumpkin so that the yellow also colored the windows and pumpkin face.  To finish the card, I added a little baker's twine at the bottom and added the saying (Eek A3520)
