Ornaments and Holly

Hello fellow crafters, and welcome to my newest follower, Bunny.

3 more sleeps to go - believe it or not!

For several days I have had some very exciting news to share with you all, but with great difficulty, I will hold off until tomorrow, when all will be revealed.
These 2 cards are very similar, but they are for friends who live in different states, do not know of the other's existence, and do not know I have a blog. I removed the negative pieces from the ornament die-cut, and attached burgundy cardstock underneath.
This ornament looks as if it is damaged, but those dark marks are reflections. I left the 
negative pieces in the die-cut, securing them with double-sided tape. 
I enjoy this effect sometimes.
I made the inside of the cards the same, leaving them very plain. 
The message area is quite large, as I wanted enough room to 
write a few snippets of news.

Paper - Bo Bunny 'Holly Rejoice'
Dies - Cottage Cuts 'Ornaments', 'Celebrate'; Memory Box 'Crisp Bows'; Spellbinders 'Classic, and Scalloped Long Rectangles'
Embossing Folder - 'Snowflakes' (I don't know the brand)
Braid, gold cord, peel-off stickers - from my junk stash

Hope you are all finished with your preparations for Christmas, or very close to being there, so you can relax and enjoy it.

Until tomorrow,
Jennifer. x
