New Memory Box…




Hi card making friends!  I promise something other than Christmas soon!  Some family birthday cards coming.  I wanted to play a long with the Muse: Christmas Visions Challenge They provide an inspiration card for a jumping off point and yep, I jumped! lol  I’ve got the circle thing going, the colors and a banner.  I positioned my wreath too low though and you know how hard it is to pull up those mounting squares… so I added twine and the words at the bottom! Not exactly what I had in mind but I decided to post it anyway!

and it was a star! Thanks for the votes!

I had another card started, so I decided to go ahead and finish and post it too before I lost the parts.  I love this poppy Seasons Greetings die…such a vintage feel to it.  Another card that didn’t turn out exactly what I had in mind!  I know.. two in a row!  I’ll keep trying! lol




The Seasons Greetings fit on the card horizontal but the diagonal placement reminded me of the vintage Christmas cards so I went with it instead.

Maybe what it needs is some pattern paper! I’ve gotten to where I hardly want to get into the patterns because I have such a hard time making up my mind what to use.  I guess I tend to cheat and use solids! I love to buy the stuff though!

It was fun playing with more of the NEW Memory Box dies anyway.  It’s that time of year with lots of new product coming out to play with! Watching for CHA photos! I saw the darling Lawn Fawn scarecrow yesterday!  So cute!

I’ll shut up and get some links made.  Thanks for the visit and happy July day to you!

Dies and supplies I used…

  1. Oh my goodness!!! I had to catch my breath here!! These are stunning!!! The background on the first one is SO pretty as is the wreath… oh just everything!!! The second one with the poinsettia cluster…. serious beauty in that card! You outdid yourself!!!!!

  2. Both are gorgeous just the way they are! No patterned paper needed here! I love Christmas cards and I think form here on will be seeing lots! Love the red and green with gold sentiment. Im drooling over both.

  3. Beautifully done Pam – I adore the red card. Boy it sure is a little early for me to get my mind around Christmas.
    But you sure will be ready!!

  4. Awesome cards Pam. I LOVE the new Snowflake Centerpiece die. Brilliant design!!! And, I love the traditional Christmas colors. The wreath is gorgeous with those holly leaves. So very nicely done on both!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us!

  5. Oh, Pam! These are gorgeous! I love the texture on that holly and the beautiful inlaid work you’ve done! So glad you joined us at MCV this week!

  6. Gorgeous, as always! Very colorful and festive, dear friend! Thanks for sharing and forever enabling! Hugs…

  7. Love them both. Think the wreath on the first one is in the perfect place. It turned out beautiful! And the red one is gorgeous! Pattern paper NOT needed. Those dies are just so pretty.

  8. Both of these cards are so Christmas! I want all the dies you used. I agree with other people that patterned paper would destroy your look. The solids are wonderful. Gotta start some Christmas cards when life permits. Great inspiration again, Pam!~

  9. Well they may not be what you intended but oh my they are both just gorgeous, I love how you added the string right at the top of the wreath, couldn’t be anymore perfect, and the second does have a great vintage feel to it!!

  10. I just love these cards, they are so pretty. Sometimes little mistakes turn out to be winners, as in your first card. That’s what I love about your creative mind. I also love everything vintage and you certainly achieved the vintage flair on your second card. Everything is beautiful the details, color and elements used on both cards. Great job Pam!

  11. Your Christmas cards are always so awesome! You always have great ideas. I may need to case them again this year.

  12. Oh Pamster! My heart actually jumped for joy when I scrolled through all your gorgeous Christmas cards you have been making…they are all just so beautiful girlie!!! Sorry to have been absent so long, harvest is slowly coming to an end so should be back to it all in the next few weeks!
