Holiday Frame


I've had the Holiday Frames from Simon Says Stamp for a few and I've been wanting to use it but other things kept getting in the way. But I saw this weeks Freshly Made Sketch I thought this would work.
Since I wanted to make a little scene inside the frame I cut out another Merry with double sided tape on the back so all I had to do was to cut the bottom and attached on top of the existing Merry. You may notice that I added the waste inside the letters R and A thats a bit of me that doesn't like the empty space where is should be.
I'm wondering now if the little houses die that Simon Says Stamps are smaller than the Memory Box one I've used cos I reckon they may work a bit better. My snow is using the curvy die from Spellbinders.
Last of all my snowflake another Simon Says Stamps Abby Snowflake die, again I added double sided tape to the back and layered them together to help it pop.
Had a successful day yesterday and four cards made admittingly a couple have gone down the CAS route but I actually like them!
