Good Saturday morning. I have a fast and easy Christmas card to share with you today. The Memory Box Grand Merry Christmas die makes such a statement cut in a light colored paper and layered over color. I think it pairs perfectly with old fashioned decorations like a simple multi loop bow and the Impression Obsession Pine Branch.
I cut the Merry Christmas layer, attached a strip of seam binding across it and attached it to the card base with mounting tape to add dimension. I cut several pieces of pine branch, formed lightly with the stylus and molding pad and attached to the card base.
I created a multi loop bow using the seam binding and attached it over the pine with glue dots. You can watch my multi loop bow video tutorial if you would to see how I make my bows. It is much simpler than you may think.
Here’s a closer view.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have had a great start to your weekend.

Kittie…. I love this card. I got the die and have used it. It was an amazing die. I was concerned that I’d have to fight the letters to get them out but it was a piece of cake. Thank you for sharing your sensational creativity……
Nice card! Like the layered pine branches and multi-loop bow. Thx for the link to your videos. 🙂
Thanks for the inspiration! I have the Merry Christmas die and am looking forward to making some of my cards with it this year.
Thank you for this beautiful, elegant yet simple card. I needed to see this beauty today. It is very gloomy outside. I am starting Christmas cards and tags now. Less than 2 months til Christmas! Thank you for sharing this inspiring card.
Gorgeous card Kittie! Love the bow!
Thank you for the inspiration, Kittie!

I’m going to try to make such a bow.
