Birch Press Design & Poppystamps time!

Hi all!  I'm so excited for today because we have a special Birch Press Design and Poppystamps collaboration for you!  


You should have arrived here from the Poppystamps Blog.  I fell in love with this Merry Christmas Circle Frame die as soon as I saw it!  For my first card, I cut out some paper I had watercolored and layered it a few times for extra dimension.  I rounded the corners of the front of the card, keeping it all very clean and simple.



For my second card, I cut out some silver foil paper with the Merry Christmas die, then added red card stock behind it.  I added some versa mark leaves from the Brushed Christmas Greetings stamp set from Birch Press Designs.  This would be a GREAT mass production card design - just change up the card stock colors!



Be sure to comment along the way for your chance to win.  *hint - a little birdie told me that one of the winning comments will be picked from the Birch Press Design blog*  Next up on the hop is Ilona!

Here's the entire hop list so you don't miss a thing!

Wow amazing how a colour change can make a die and card look so different, two fab cards and two fab looks and both would be great foe mass production.

Great pink card for Christmas. Who said it has to be red and green. I do love the green and red made with that die though. Very traditional and pretty.

Susi K. said...

This is such a beautiful die, with a gorgeous font on the sentiment! I must admit I'm favouring the traditional red/green card, but they're both stunning!

What a delightful duo of Chrstmas cards you've designed to dazzle us. The pink is wonderfully pretty; the red/green traditional, yet trendy! My festive spirit has been sparked...
