It's a wonderful and very busy time of the year! We are squeezing in one last challenge before 2018. The theme is Anything Goes excuse for not playing along! Just create using IO products for a chance at winning an Impression Obsession $25 Gift Certificate. You can see at the details on the IO Blog.

Before I forget...
We are sad to be saying goodbye to an incredibly talented DT member, Chris Dayton. Totally understand that family always comes first. We will miss you! 

Happy News...
We welcome a new DT member, Giovana Smith!

This season I seem to be saying the same thing, fast and easy!
Made with IO's JOY FRAME DIE, this shaker card is just that!
The die was cut first in the gold Mirricard. I ran the die a second time using only the ornament and cutting it in red. To add a little interest, I added gold Rainbow Tape along the embossed lines on the ornament. Acetate was adhered to the back side of the frame.
Foam tape was then placed around the edge of the frame.

The BG is a white Stardream paper that has been embossed with a holly and berry embossing folder. A few red sequins and clear beads were added into the popped up frame. Easy shaker card!

I love working with Mirricard paper for cards except when it comes to photographing!
It's very hard to get the true colors and not show any shadows! 

Thanks for looking and Happy Holidays.
See you next year!

Anything goes from the IODT
