DECEMBER Challenge: Quick and/or Cute

In a flurry of a hurry? This month the Dream Team are all about the Quick and/or Cute...whether that be cards, gifts, wrapping, or tags...we have sleigh-loads of ideas! Play along by posting your creations using the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, for a chance to win the stencil of your choice, and a possible bonus stencil for using Dreamweaver products in your Quick and/or Cute project!

Once again life has been wild wild wild and my wonderful friend Marj Marion sent me a couple of cards made with the embossing folders that really inspired me...thank you so much Marj. 

Marj live in the Olympia WA area and occasionally works at the wonderful stamp store Art 'N Soul. She has great following of stenciling and creative card making students that take every class she plans. Here are two cards that are super easy to make for the fact I am a bit behind on my own creations so I look forward to using the new embossing folders too.

This is such a classy looking card, Marj! The Holiday Greetings embossing folder (FJ917) was dry embossed through the machine and then the berries were done with a gold pearl pen. The decorative border on either side of the sentiment was done with a decorative washi tape.

Beautifully and quickly done for those last minute cards.

Here in her words is how she accomplished this second card...yes it is done very simply and elegantly:

" Dry emboss the silver panel in the Peace on Earth folder (FG663). Trim it closely to the design. Adhere it to a black layer, and trim, leaving and 1/8" border of the black. Attach silver scroll Washi tape and decorated panel as shown. Attach two black rhinestones at the top two corners. Tie a gentle overhand know with the silver/black ribbon; adhere it to the card with glue dots."

Don't forget our design team is sharing today too, so leave some love here for Marj and be sure to visit the team and leave a comment or two for them as well.
