Labels Thinlit Christmas Card

I LOVE the new Thinlit dies! This is the first card I made with them, and I can't wait to use them both a lot more... not to mention all the accent pieces they come with for so many other cards and projects! I made this one for club, but then decided to change the striped layer up a bit, for a different placement. It looked great too, but I forgot to take a picture before I sent it home with one of my girls ;)

The only hard part about these is getting a decent picture, since it won't stand flat... oh well! Due to the angles, it's hard to see, but the Bermuda Bay banner is dry-embossed with the Stylish Stripes folder. And I used half of the smallest Square Framelit to cut the triangle out of the bottom of it. Perfect!

The center label was smudged directly onto the Encore Silver pad to give it a nice silver shimmer and offset the white punched edge of the ornament.

Challenges I used:

CAS(E) This Sketch - (see below... also I flipped it, and of course by it's nature, the Thinlit added a center element)
Dynamic Duos - (see below... normally I would use these for a kid's birthday or something, but with Christmas coming, I thought it was a perfect non-traditional combo!)
SUO Challenges - A Favorite Sentiment (I do try to "branch out", but Merry Christmas just feels so RIGHT!)
Ribbon Carousel - Holidays and Celebrations


  1. Great card! I am in love with the candy-cane-striped paper. I did a class the other night, and I think I had it on 3 of my 6 projects. And I bought Petite Pairs for that stamp alone, and it sees a lot of ink! Thanks for playing along at Dynamic Duos!

  2. Wonderful creation! Your flip Christmas card is lovely! Thanks so much for joining us at Dynamic Duos! :)

  3. Great flip card!! Love the silver ink for the background on the circle and the colors along with the sentiment look fabulous!! Thanks for sharing with us at SUO Challenges and the Dynamic Duos :-)

  4. Love the banner along the edge with the Circle Die card! Very fun! Thanks for playing along with the Favorite Saying challenge this time on SUO Challenges!
