Simon Says Stamp - Merry Frame

Hi folks, Christmas is just around the corner and to help you out with all those festive makes, the Holiday 2019 Cheer and Joy Collection from Simon Says Stamp has everything you need, beautiful stamps, dies and stencils and you can check out everything in the collection HERE.
The festive elves at Simon Says kindly sent me the Merry Frame die to play with and with 4 different pieces that you can use together or separately or mix and match with different colours, this is a great value for money versatile die.
I decided to make a trio of cards, quick and easy to mass produce with simple stamping and using the Merry Frame die in different ways to create classic black, gold and white cards.
I began by trimming Simon Says #120 Ultra White card to measure 4.1/4" square and stamped the 3 images from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Yuletide Gatherings inked with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black and heat embossed with Ranger Superfine Clear Embossing Powder.
I fixed Tim Holtz/Sizzix Adhesive sheets to scraps of Simon Says #120 Ultra White, Black card and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Classic Metallic 2 KraftStock and die-cut the Merry Christmas Frame. I added different parts of the die-cuts to the cards and stamped "Christmas" from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings inked with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black. I added Tim Holtz Idea-ology MetalIic Droplets and matted each panel on to Classic Metallic 2 KraftStock, Black Card and fixed to a 5" square white card blank.






I seem to be stuck in a Black and Gold Christmas colour rut, so today I'll be breaking out some colours and will be back soon to share more makes with this fabulous die.
Toodle-oo for now
