Christmas Time Collection - The Greetery Day 2...

Today is day 2 of the Christmas Time Collection Reveal at The Greetery!  This amazing new release will be available on Thursday, October 7th at 10am EDT.  Until then we have today and one more day of sneak peeks to share!  Check out The Greetery blog for all of the details on today's products.

Today I am sharing the latest in Curio Collection and the additions....but I am sharing only the additions part today!  The new stamps called Ornament Box Top Stamps were created to work as a box top for the new Curio Ornament Dies.  You can create your own vintage ornament box with the dividers.  They are adorable!  BUT when I saw these stamps, I instantly saw the perfect Christmas Card Photo Frame.  How fun is this?


The Greetery


I stamped several in gray and red and then used the coordinating die to create the frame.  I added my photo behind the frame using ATG.  It was the perfect match for a 4x6 photo...trimmed down just a tad!  I made photo cards using an A2 card base, as well as a basic photo card with one layer.  I will share more of these on the IG Live over at the Greetery on Thursday morning! 


This next card uses the new Christmas Time Elements.  These new dies work together to create a scene in an hourglass.  There is a city scene and a country scene.  Included in the country scene is this perfect nativity.....


The Greetery


I kept the card very clean using only a bit of blue ink for the background and then white for all the elements.  I added in a banner sentiment from Banner and Bough right through the middle.  It was the perfect coordinating sentiment!


Don't forget to leave comments along the hop today.  The Greetery is giving away $50 gift certificates to 2 lucky winners, chosen from the comments left along the stops on today's hop.  



So glad you came by today!  Come back tomorrow for day 3!
