Seasons Greetings



Just a few versions of my main Christmas card this year. Much cleaner and simpler than usual as I wanted to be able to work on it in my recliner while recouping from my foot surgery, doing great, back to work next Monday!  I won this Die Versions lovely seasons greetings die cut on a blog hop on Cherish Each Precious Day blog. I used a variety of shimmery papers and a few snowflakes with some bling but this die did not really need much embellishing. I've also seen this on patterned paper, and with poinsettia's below the greeting.
 The bottom card is inlaid.  You cut the die out of your card front, save the pieces but set aside the greeting to use another time.  Cut the greeting out of another color cardstock.  Cover a piece of cardstock with adhesive and place on the back of your card front.  Place the new saying on the card front and fill in the spaces with the pieces matching the color of your card front. This makes a lovely card and I want to try this with other dies besides words. !  Thanks Patti for showing me this technique. 
Take care all!
