Merry Mandala Christmas (Repost from CDC Blog)

Hi everyone! 🙋 It's Julissa of Paper Gems by Jules back to share a fun way to make a simple Christmas card.  This time I made two different types of cards using the same two dies.  Read along to see how you can extend the use of your dies in your next card.

I used one of My Favorite Things' Mandala dies called Mesmerized Mandala and one of Lawn Fawn's Line Border Dies saying Merry Christmas to make both cards.  The first card I used the mandala die and an embossing pad to dry emboss the background paper.  This gave the card a little more texture.  Once adding the mandala, I layered three of the Merry Christmas dies to give it a more solid position on the card.  

Note: Dry embossing with dies allows you to add texture to your paper

without adding bulk to your card.  

For the second card, I kept it a bit more simple.  Centering both dies, allowed for a focal point on a simple and elegant card. 

I hope you were inspired with these cards.  Don't forget to share your crafty cards and creations on the Crafty Doodle Chick Chat & Create Facebook page.  We'd love to see your work!

Until then... Happy Crafting!
