New Challenge with Dies R US!










Hello sweet friends! 
Welcome to our new mid-month challenge at Dies R US! Our challenge today is "white on white". So anything you want to create, any theme, any style... just use a monochromatic/tone on tone color scheme, using of course, White. 

So here is the project that I created for today's challenge.


I created a nice little holiday card to wish the recipient a "Happy Christmas" and paired it along with a cute little pillow box for something small, like cash, a gift card, jewelry or some chocolates.
I used all Georgia Pacific cardstock. For the card, I created an A2 side folding card base and scored a few lines on the front for interest. I wanted to keep this a simple one layer card. I used the Sue Wilson Designs-Finishing Touches- Maidenhair Fern Dies and cut them out six times. I covered them up using my Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen to give them a bit of a wintry sparkle. I arranged them on the front of the card to create a winter wreath. Then I cut out a cute banner from a MCT die and stamped the "Happy Christmas" sentiment inside. I popped this banner up and added to the middle of the wreath and to finish off the card and give it a little extra something, I added in a little bit of stickles for "Berries". Love how beautiful the wreath turned out, just from using ferns!!! Just another way to look at your dies and think of ways to use them outside of their intended purpose!


For the gift- I cut out this adorable pillow box using the pillow box die from Lawn Fawn. I ran the box through an Anna Griffin "poinsettia & holly" embossing folder before assembling the box. I then took my clear sparkle pen again and highlighted over the "raised" areas to give the box that same wintry sparkle. Next, I cut out the word "JOY" from using the Lawn Fawn- Scripty Joy Die. I ran the word through my "swiss dots" embossing folder to give the letters a bit of interest and added a bit of clear sparkle to it as well. I knew I wanted this word to stand out and not blend completely into the box, so I took the Sue Wilson Designs-California Collection-Tag Die  and cut out the beautiful tag. I added the word "joy" to the center of this tag and popped it up onto the box. I used that same stickles from the card to just add a dot in each corner for that little extra something. I really love how this all turned out. It all came together beautifully and I will be putting some jewelry inside the box and giving it to my beautiful daughter, along with the card. I want to take this opportunity to wish each of you, a very Happy Holiday and a Happy & Healthy new year ahead!
  
  And that completes my card and pillow box! All of the dies that I used are highlighted in the links above and can be found in the Dies R Us store HERE


Well that is all I have for you today my friends. I appreciate you for taking time out of your day to visit me and see what I am up to. Please don't forget to stop by the Dies R US challenge blog to see what the rest of my design team sisters have created for you today. And make sure to link up your own project too!
