Today's new die is Wavy Rectangles



S4-341 Wavy Rectangles

2: 1 1/8 x 1 ¼”
3: 1 7/8 x 2 1/8
4: 2 ¾ x 3 1/8”
5. 3 5/8 x 4 ¼”

I decided to go Christmas with my project. Two nights ago we celebrated an early Thanksgiving with my family since my parents will be heading to Arizona for the winter and won't be here for the actual day. So now, I am really feeling the Christmas spirit!


I started with Crate Paper's Peppermint Twist line. I die cut, embossed and sanded two of the largest Wavy Rectangles out of the green chevron print paper. Cut the two edges off of one of the pieces and adhered them to the two sides of my card front. Used some 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives to mount the second piece for my focal point. Next, I die cut, embossed and inked the next smaller Wavy Rectangle. Then stamped it with a pink doily stamp from My Mind's Eye, spelled out NOEL using Jillibean Soup stickers and a brad from the same line as my paper. Lastly I embellished with little red jewels from Want 2 Scrap and buttons from Creative Impressions.
