Stand Out Saturday 50-2019

I don't think it is a secret that I adore box cards and my favorite designs come from

This nativity scene is from a group of cards called Yuletide by and I cut it out of white card stock.  I decided to make it stand out a little more by using a blue Distress Ink along the edges.  I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to add a little dimension to the panels at the bottom of the layers.  The metallic called for this month was done by going over the halos with a Perfect Medium pen and then heat embossing with gold embossing powder.  This card came together very quickly.

I want to wish all of you a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I have decided to step away from designing for this blog for a while, but look forward to see is done each month by others.  Gracie had some beautiful cards. - Denise

Color Me Friday 50-2019

Color me Friday is featuring white, metallic and one color.

Red was the color I chose to use along with gold embossing powder.  The border stamp is from Unity called Yuletide. The sentiment is also from Unity and is called Joyous Comfort.  It is a wonderful set designed to send to those who have lost loved ones either close to the holidays or are facing their first Christmas without a loved one.  The berries were colored with my Spectrum Noir markers and I wrapped the top with red raffia ribbon. - Denise
