Avery Elle's December/January Release Hop

 

Welcome to Avery Elle's December/January Release Hop!
I hope you arrived here from JJ's blog. If not, start at Avery Elle because you'll want to leave
 comments along the way and see the projects from the rest of the design team!
And joining us as guest designer this month is Kristen Foreman
who won the current AEI♥U challenge.

First, here's my card using Avery's Alpha dies.
I love a good set of alphabets and Avery's Alphas fit the bill perfectly.
This is such a clean, classic font. You'll have so much fun creating your own sentiments
or personalizing a card. The possibilities are endless!


I die cut JOY, LOVE and PEACE from Avery Elle's colored cardstock
and fashioned them into a Christmas tree shape on birch woodgrain cardstock.
The star is from Ornament: Simply Tags Christmas.


For my second card, I die cut alphabets from scraps of cardstock
and arranged the colorful letters to form the sentiment.
See what I mean by "endless possibilities"?

There's an awesome set of matching alpha stamps, but I was having way too much fun
with the dies. I'll be sharing cards using the stamps in a future post, so stay tuned!
