Today I have two cards to share with you. For my first I used the new Die-namics Peek-a-boo Squared to create a Christmas card.  I used designer paper to die cut the Peek-a-boo Squared Die-namics and then die cut the letters N O E L using the Die-namics High Rise Alphabet Upper Case. On the top corner of my card I added a bow using the Die-namics Beautiful Bows die. I used Kraft and Wild Cherry card stock for the letters and base of the card.

For the inside of my card I used three of the circles that were left over when I cut out the Die-namics Peek-a-boo Squared. I also added a sentiment from the Seasonal Sentiments stamp set which is this months triple scoop stamp set.

For my second card today I decided to create a Diamond Fold card showcasing the Die-namics Sunflower. If you don’t know how to create this style of card you can find a video I made some months back here.

On the the centre panel of the card I used the Die-namics Sunflower and the Die-namics Medium Leafy Flourish . For the sentiment I used one of the sentiments from the Journal It Top Ten stamp set which is layered onto a tag from the Die-namics Accent It Flags and Tags set.
