Memory Box Elliana dies…


There is just something so dramatic about a tall card!  I love how this turned out! Clean and beautiful!  Memory Box dies are so gorgeous!

Here I used the NEW Sturdy Stem die, Elliana Ornament die and Ornament Hooks and Caps die. All of these were die cut from Silver Glitter Card-stock.


The Drop Ornament is cut from Memory Box Lagoon Card-stock.  I adhered Scor-tape to the color side before I die cut it.  After cutting, remove the release paper (the paper on the tape that keeps it from sticking to everything) and glitter with Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.


And finish it off with the pretty NEW Merry Christmas rubber stamp. I stamped it in Versamagic Turquoise Gem Chalk ink and heat embossed it with Detail Clear Embossing Powder.

Almost makes a gal want to put up her Christmas tree!!!  HOHOHO!

Card Size… 3 3/4 in. x 9 in. fits a #10 business envelope



Have you seen the NEW Elliana Background die and Eliana Detail Plate?  Really, REALLY cool!



On the left is the Detail plate and on the right is the cutting die…
Look right there in the middle where they overlap and the camera focused…you can see the detail…looks like corduroy!  Click to see it better.



I die cut a Memory Box A2 Parchment Notecard with the Elliana Background die, then embossed the die cut with the Elliana Detail Plate and inked it with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool.  So pretty!  Going for a vintage look for this card…


The NEW Poinsettia Bloom Trio die cut from Memory Box Cranberry and Licorice Card-stock just makes me happy! Add the leaves from the NEW Sturdy Stem die, cut in Memory Box Licorice Card-stock and use the pieces separately this time!  Love that!


The NEW Merry Cursive die…cut three times from Memory Box Parchment Card-stock, glued together and edged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.  The word Christmas is from the NEW Grand Merry Christmas Script and also cut three times, glued together and edged with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.

I used my Perfect Layers Tools to cut the mats and the card base… link over on the right.. Special Deal going on right now!!!

  1. Pam, this is stunning. I especially love the clear glitter on that gorgeous colored stock. What an elegant and beautiful card! Both cards are wonderful – you have a way of bringing life to these dies! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. What an elegant card Pam. Ok so WHAT is release paper? I must have missed something along the way. Never heard of it… Love the new dies & your amazing work on these creations.

  3. Beautiful shimmer on that ornament, love the hooks, I didn’t realize they had that die, it looks great hanging off the branch. Love how dramatic that poinsettia is too, it looks great in those colors, you are going to be already for Christmas!!

  4. Oh, wow! AGAIN!! I can’t decide which of these is my favorite! The first is SO elegant and the 2nd is just gorgeous! What is there about a beautiful Xmas card that immediately makes you want to start trimming a tree & decorating the house! lol

  5. You are doing too much seriously enabling with your use of the lovely new dies. Each of these cards is a masterpiece and just awesome with the colors you have chosen. Gotta have that poinsettia! (others are on a wish list!) TFS & Hugs. Happy wkend too.

  6. The long card with the ornament is so much more stunning IRL. The camera just doesn’t do it justice !!! The red Merry Christmas on the second card is much better than the way you first had it. Thanks to Carolyn for the suggestion.

  7. Your Christmas bulb is amazing. I would love to see how that hook is made. I just can’t envision it.
    The Merry Cursive die is cool.
    I’ve been laying low as I had to put my cat Lucky down. It was hard to come home to an empty house so my Husband and I went and adopted two 3 mos. old kittens. What joy, laughter and fun they have brought us and sure helped to fill the void.
    Hope you are having a better week and thanks for sharing with us!

  8. Such beautiful cards – I love them both. Love how the Elliana ornament is on a tall card – I never think to make a tall card and I feel so inspired to try one myself. Thanks so much 🙂

  9. These are both beautiful, Pam. I love the blue ornament. I make a lot of my holiday cards in blue. The vintage card is gorgeous too. You are so far ahead of me. Won’t be thinking about Christmas cards for many months.

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
