My greenery bedecked Christmas cards highlight the beauty of just one of the Pinkfresh Studio Layered Wreath dies - yes, I have a few! On my first card, I've cut three from different shades of green for my greenery:
If you look closely you might see that one of the cuts comes
from my card panel. After die cutting that piece,
I ran the panel through with my Subtle texture ef from SU
Here's card two:
Don't adjust your screen, this card uses MFT's primitive white card stock -I just love that natural flecking,
and that Lil Inker's cover plate - obviously!
On this card, I've cut the PF wreath, and promptly snipped it's boughs to gather into a swag for my Spellbinder Hemstitch square cut window.
So there they are, my final Twofer for the Year!
Merry Christmas, to the Twofer Team -
can't wait for a whole new year of crafty inspiration from you!
Wait!! Before I say goodbye, may I send out a
HUGE thank you
for all the darling created-from-your-hearts birthday cards I received in the last week!! You might guess that I loved each and every card! You'll be sharing my studio, where I keep you close all year!
Love you, friends! and every birthday wish! xo
Your wreath and "sprig" cards are fabulous, so festive and full of cheer! Thanks for playing along at Twofer Card Challenge.
P S What a fab wall card holder.
Beautiful, beautiful wreath and swag, Michele! I love the three colors on the wreath with the pink berries and textured background! The swag on the hemstitch square is GORGEOUS! Each one of these is a winner!
Love your cards, Jo x
Your birthday cards are all so beautiful, M! They look fabulous displayed like that! And your Twofer are exquisite with all their texture and dementia! Will you come and decorate my door?! I love the layers of your first wreath with the sweet vellum bow and the unexpected pink berries and I love the hemstitch and lined frame, decorated with a swag of holiday greenery! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #22! Hugs, Darnell
We really are on the same wave length aren't we?!! Well, great minds and all that you know!! Your cards are both GORGEOUS my friend! Your wreath is so pretty with its 3 layers and I'm swooning over that vellum bow! And your window card is just as beautiful with that loveky swag! Two definite beauties Michele!! Hugs. ��
Your greenery is brilliant, and that vellum bow TDF! Hope you had the loveliest of birthdays my friend x
Oh, I like your pretty layered wreath! And then you turned one into a swag...you're so clever! Me on the other hand...not so much! After seeing all of those pretty birthday cards I just realized I neglected to put the one I had for you in your gift bag. Insert hand slap to the forehead!!!
Beautiful wreath and I love your swag, Michele! I also love how you added texture to the background of both cards!
What a gorgeous card holder!!! I think it's lovely that so many of your friends sent their love to you on your birthday...so sweet!
Love your wreaths and swag. Great idea to snip it for the challenge.
Such pretty cards and I love your take on the two fer. You have a lovely assortment of embossing folders and cover dies (I am a happy owner of the cover die you've been using and giving inspiration for). So happy you received such love for your birthday. Wonderful! Happy weekend, my friend!
Those greens are so fabulous together, Michele. The colors I mean but the finished card is fab too. Your textured backgrounds add so much to your subtle designs. I've saved these for future reference.
"I owe you a phone call and when we chat, I'll explain my failure to send a bd card," she said head hanging low and with eyes brimming with tears. Belated wishes darling friend. Now...As to your Twofers... So pretty! Love that vellum bow on your full on wreath card. The berries add just enough color to make my eyes happy and give your card that little extra somethin'-somethin'. Love the Hemstitch die on your second card. Did you have doilies or pillowcases with those stitches on them when you were little? I've loved that look since then. The swag looks like it was designed just for this too. Sweet cards. Thanks so much for joining us at the Twofer Challenge Miss M. Sending some sunshine your way. xoxo Bev
Brilliant use of those dies. CAS is always a winner in my book and the e/f's adds so much texture and interest to your creations. Also, love the way you display your birthday cards...it makes for impressive home decor. Sorry I missed your birthday...bet it was a rootin' tootin' event.
Belated birthday wishes, Michele! Hope your day was very happy. You're one of the biggest cheerleaders here in blogland - you brighten so many days. Thanks for your comment today!
And as for your cards - I love them too!
Both cards are fabulous, Michele! The layered wreath in three shades of green, the subtle textured background, the pretty vellum bow, and the pink (not red) berries are all wonderfully creative. The black peeking through the hemstitched square window is a wonderful touch, as well a the stitched cover plate background!
These are absolutely lovely. The cover plate on the white card is great. Love the texture on both cards. [Bunny]
Wow Michele, these are both stunning twofers! I love how you used your wreath as the original intention, but then I love how you took just pieces of it to make your second card. So beautiful are both of them!!! Love how you displayed your beautiful birthday cards. Glad you had a lot of them come your way!!! I hope mine arrived and I didn't send it to the wrong address. Would be just like me to do so though. :-( Hugs, Brenda
Belated birthday wishes and what fabulous cars you had from friends and bloggers x
Both of your cards are stunning Michele and I love how you used the wreath in two very different ways. Great designs and colourways and of course loving the Lil Inkers cover plate, which looks fabulous x.
Two great cards for Twofer, Michele, one with a beloved embossing plate and another with an ef! And a ton of lovely cards from your admirers!
Belated birthday good wishes to you! Lovely cards today, as usual!
Wow.....all those gorgeous birthday cards and two beautiful greenery cards......a feast of cards! A gaggle of cards? A herd of cards? A school of cards? What do you call such a wonderful group of cards?
What fabulous cardstock and your creations as always are stunners!
Absolutely gorgeous and classy twofer! I love the sentiment and bow on the first and the unique background in the second:)
TWICE! as spectacular Michele!! two beautiful cards!!
I am SAD I missed your birthday Michele!! : ( I don't know why it is not on my calendar but I plan to remedy that!!
Happy belated birthday!!
What gorgeous texture behind your lush layered wreath, Michele ... and a fabulous colour palette ... the pink berries are perfect with those soft greens! The white on white framing of the gold scripty sentiment on your second card is so stylish (those hemstitch dies ... yum!)... and how gorgeous are the shimmery gold berries on your swag ... delicious! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)
Totally in love with these cards! Your wreath...oh my! Such amazing details on both.
I missed your birthday?!?!! Nooo! We shall have to rectify that swiftly :)
I love, love, love your cards, and that wreath is SUCH a fave for me right now! Isn't it so versatile and fabulous? Love how you snipped it up - must give that a try soon!
Well happy belated birthday, Michele! I hope it was amazing! Your Christmas cards are both wonderful! I love the texture you added to your full wreath card, and the fantastic mixture of colors! Such a great idea to white heat emboss that bow on vellum! How cool is that hemstitched square frame?! It's a great place to place your swag! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!
