Be Jolly
by Jeanne Jachna


Jeanne here today!  I hope you're enjoying all the beauty of the holiday season.  I love playing with Poppystamps dies... it doesn't matter if you love Clean and Simple or like to add as many as you can to make a scene like I did today!  Poppystamps has something for EVERYBODY!

I started with a simple background.  I adhered the Diamond Background die from red card stock to a soft pink panel. Next I adhered the largest Double Stitch Rectangle Frame cut from white card stock to the panel to give it a finished look.  After trimming off the excess (the frame is smaller than the background die)  I adhered the completed panel to a card base.
The largest Jar die was cut from baby blue card stock.  I cut the Tree Line Hill die from white card stock, and then cut it again using the Jar die so it would layer perfectly when I attached them together. 
All that was left was embellishing!  I created a floral to adorn the jar using the Mod Poinsettias, Holly Leaf Branch, and Perfect Pine Needles.  A gem adorns the center of the layered poinsettia flower.
I added a Wilderness Moose to the scene.  He's trecking across the frozen landscape.  A bitty Circle Basics die makes a sun.  And a simple "Be Jolly" sentiment in red coordinates perfectly with the background.


I hope you find some time to make today!  Hugs!

Oh my goodness Jeanne! Such an amazing design! I love the way that you placed the quilted background, snowy white trees with the floral display and you even tucked in a deer strolling by.
It looks like you are just sitting there in your living room look I looking past your bouquet of Pointsettia through your window to this gorgeous scene!
I would never have dreamed that you could put the winter out door scene and the interior so seamlessly! Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Lee

Absolutely so lovely! Love the layout and all the cuts - beautiful!

This is SO PRETTY, Jeanne! LOOK AT ALL of the dies you've used! WOW!!! It is a piece to be TREASURED FOR SURE! ;) It's STRIKING with the Diamond Background in red!!! ;)

This is such a cute card, Jeanne! I just love that jar die. Going to have to put it on my wish list for sure. Happy Holidays to you and yours....
