Have A Merry Christmas

 Hello crafters!  I started this card by cutting the Merry Big Bold Word die in white.  I added it to a black backing piece.  I cut the die again, but out of Ruby Red card this time.  I used the fall away pieces from the die cut and paper pieced them back into the Merry die.  I embossed a piece of white card with the Stripes embossing folder and added the Merry word to it.  I used the Double Stitched Rectangles and made a white frame and added it with mounting foam.  I used the penguin from the Penguin Palace die set and added it at the bottom corner of the frame along with the North Pole sign.  I stamped the rest of the sentiment and cut them out with the tag die from the set.  I attached them with foam.  The card was completed with white, red and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4"   in size.  

We still have unclaimed dies from the blog launch drawings.  Scroll down to see if your name is on the list.  All for now, Sue x
