His and Her Christmas

Sunday already?!  It was so nice to get some mom time in and even better to have some ideas pop up in my head while playing at the playground and going for some pumpkin and cinnamon frozen yogurt after.  I had to get some homework done for the OCC:Holiday Cards Workshop and came up with this...

For Him...

Kept with muted colors, but couldn't help myself with the silver embossing on the Cottage Cutz die.  I first did a single tree die cut, but it was so boring to me I decided to make it more like a silhouette for the silver tree.  It was hubby approved.

For Her...

I took the same layout/design and used a more festive approach with the red background pattern paper from Lawn Fawn Fa La La paper pad and added rhinestones and pearls.

I'll be honest I'm not a fan of intricate dies because of the patience you need to take all the bits and pieces out, but this tree really is worth it.  There was also a tip to get the metal shim to help cut intricate dies better.  I'm on the fence with this because if I made that purchase I probably would be buying more dies!

Hope you'll visit again for tomorrow's post to see the next edition of "Picking Up the Pieces Monday."'s got some Hawaiian flair!


  1. That's a very elegant Christmas tree. Pretty card!!!! Have a great week.

  2. I love how you made the silver silhouette in the first card- very pretty!

  3. These are both pretty! I love the silver on the first one and the background on the second one!!


Your comments truly make my day,
so please send one my way! ;o)

More to Love!
