Tidings of Comfort and Joy - Memory Box Stamps and Dies

Good morning! A while back I received some beautiful Memory Box dies to play with - and then life got crazy, and I had to work on other stuff first. But earlier this week, I was able to pull them out and have some fun - I loved layering different dies and stamped sentiments together for these two cards!

If you have visiting my blog much before, you know I love two for one card designs - and these dies are perfect for that! Since I wanted to alternate the colors, I could just reverse the colors to make a second card, with no additional die cutting require, and best of all - no waste!

For both of these cards, I used Slate cardstock and white cardstock to die cut both the Drop Nativity die set and Winter Tree Oval frame (just using the main outer frame). I traced around the oval die on a piece of scrap paper, then cut inside the tracing lines and used that panel to adhere the outer frame and the inner oval together. Then pieced together the nativity over the top of that.

Sentiment on both of these cards is from the gorgeous Tidings Wreath stamp set - which I also can't wait to ink up and use on it's own! I heat embossed it on the gray cardstock version, then stamped simply in black on white cardstock for the other one, and mounted those with a bit of foam adhesive over the top of the nativity.

Finally, I punched a hole int he top and used that to tie a bit of sheer white ribbon in a bow at the top to make them look like tags, then adhered them over some older pattern paper from my stash that I first added some white splatters to for a bit of a more festive touch.
