Holly Jolly

Good morning!
It's finally the weekend!  For me this week seemed to drag on and on.  I think it was mostly because I was anxiously awaiting several deliveries of Stampin' Up! goodies.  Yesterday I received my Circle and Label Thinlits Card Die's.  I think that everyone NEEDS these 2 new dies!  You wouldn't believe all the possibilities!  I spent my entire day yesterday playing around with them.  I created several  cards and a few other projects using the new dies.
For the first card- I used the Label Thinlits Card die.  I love all the fun elements that comes with this set.  I found that when I was using the word dies- it's best to add a piece of wax paper to your sandwich before cutting.  Definitely helps the letters pop out much easier!

I also created another Circle Thinlits Card.  This time I used the Tags 4 You stamp set.  I love making cards with a little swing image in the center.  You'll notice that my Holly Jolly card is very basic.  I could have added plenty of embellishments and other various elements but I chose to keep it simple and plain.  I was trying to figure out where I could write a note and I decided to decorate the back of the card as well.  It just made sense to me to keep the front/inside simple and to just use the back.  There are pictures of all 3 below:
Here's the front:

The back:
There still isn't much room to write a note- but there's plenty of room to say something short and sweet!
Thanks for checking in today!  I hope you enjoy your Saturday.  I am off to the Monroe County Fair!
