CSAYL#47 - Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is friday and every friday over at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog, we have a different challenge ready to keep your holiday mojo going on all year long. Today's challenge is to create cards that have die cuts on them (either from a kit or you can create your own die cuts with your cutting machine).

I cut out circle in the center of my card with my nesties, so that my ornament could hang out in the center. I cut out a scallop shape with the center cut out to fit over the cut out circle and then adorned it with holly that I stamped, copified and cut out. I used the beautiful stamp set: Holly Jolly by Verve Stamps.
I loved making this card, it was quick and simple. Usually when it gets closer to the holidays, I always start to panic - wondering how I am going to send cards to everyone and so its been really nice to be able to get some holly jolly mojo going :)

If you have a chance to play along, we would love to see your "to die for creations" - you can check out all the deets and all of the DT's creations over at the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope your friday is off to a great start!!!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)
