Today’s share is one of the projects I designed and shared at some of the recent Christmas Extravaganza events. This bright and happy Christmas card feature the Merry, Bold & Bright papers, paired with the Joy of Noel dies.
I’ve taken 3/4″ strips of the Merry, Bold, and Bright printed paper and pieced them together in a very simple quilt pattern to create a fun background. It’s also a great way to use scraps!
I found most people in my classes actually preferred this green version. This is a combination of Granny Apple Green, Shaded Spruce, and Lemon Lime Twist. I quite like the gold accent with these bright colors, too.
The Joy of Noel die set has the typewriter font Noel, which has been great this year. They are easy to cut out and bold. And if you know someone named Leon, then you can use it for even more projects!
