Picture My Life Cards ~ Color Dare 321


For this Color Dare I decided to use some of the Tis the Season Picture My Life cards because they are so pretty and work great for cards, too! I couldn't decide between these two cards so I used them both. I've included a photo of the Tis the Season paper pack so you can see what a beautiful collection of papers it really is. The PML cards can be seen in the lower right.

The Be Merry card uses all the colors in the Tic Tac Toe grid.
The Merry Christmas card uses the top row of colors plus White Daisy

I trimmed the cards down to the size I needed for my cards then got busy with cutting some layers and putting it all together. On the Be Merry card the scalloped edge was made with the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts. On the Merry Christmas card Merry Christmas was embossed with Red Glitter Powder and I brushed shimmer on the ribbon with the Red Shimmer Brush.
