It’s A Red, White, and Black Christmas . . . Card!

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong when you combine red, black, white . . . even at Christmas!  On top of that, the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies make any card a winner!  Have you purchased your set yet?  You do realize they’re on the retiring favorites list here, right?  They’ll only be available for a little while longer, while supplies last.  You certainly don’t want to miss out on this versatile set of thinlits dies!  Just sayin’!


That said, I have to share one of my most recent projects that features the Card Front Builder Thinlits Dies!  This is one of the projects from my VIP Appreciation Open House.  To say it was a hit would be an understatement!  (Important news!  If you were an attendee of my event this past Saturday, you’ll want to read to the end of my post to find out if you were a prize winner!)


Fun Black, White, & Red Christmas card features paper from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Paper and the Card Front Builder Framelits. Details on my blog . . . #cardfrontbuilderframelits #Christmascardidea
