I hope you enjoy today’s card while I’m being driven the three hours from Rouen, France to Brussels, Belgium by Hervé, Agathe, Adele and Gautier.  It’s a National Holiday in France.  It’ll be a bittersweet parting when they drop me off at my hotel in Brussels.   I do hope you’ve been checking my FaceBook page for a travel updates.

The focal point of today’s card is *merry* from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies.

Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies (139659)

Add to the thinlit, three of the patterns from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack (139595)

Again, I love the simplicity of this card.  Here are the products used:

The Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set is available in both Wood Mount and Clear Mount.  It’s also available in a bundle with the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies which gives you a 15% discount on both items when purchased together.  Great way to go!

Now back to the card.  Here are the cutting instructions:

  • Smoky Slate:  11″ x 4-1/4″, scored at 5-1/2″ and folded; second piece 4″ x 1-1/4″
  • Cherry Cobbler:  scrap large enough to accommodate the word ‘merry’
  • Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack:  3 pieces, different patterns, 1-1/4″ x 5-1/4″



  • Use the Hexagon Punch to punch out the banner piece.

  • When cutting your ‘merry’ thinlit die on the Precision Base Plate, place a piece of waxed paper between the die and the card stock.  The *sandwich* would be, from bottom to top: Multipurpose Platform, Precision Base Plate (label d-o-w-n), single sheet of paper/card stock, waxed paper, Die, Standard Cutting Pad.
  • Attach the word merry using the new Fine Tip Glue Pen.  Be sure to carefully and securely cap the Glue Pen when you’re done.
  • Attach the wooden snowflake element using tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue at the center and on each of the tips.

This is another card that makes a perfect pattern for use with other Designer Series Papers and card stocks and embellishments.  Try your hand at changing it up.
