Southwestern Season's Greetings

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a Christmas card to share with you using one of the newest dies from the November Release. If you use the code lisa15, you will get 15% off your regular price Die-Versions order.


I absolutely love the Whispers Southwestern Desert die. I thought would make a perfect southwestern-themed Christmas card. I cut the desert out first in green cardstock and then black for a shadow effect. The two larger saguaro cacti pop out from the die for an outline effect. I took the pieces that popped out, covered them in Christmas lights (liquid pearls), added foam tape for dimension and then put them back in place. Season's Greetings is from the Compliments Holiday Greetings 1 die. It was cut in red cardstock and then craft foam for dimension.


I'm entering this in the following challenges:

1. Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Anything Goes
2. Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday November - Holiday Card

 Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)
