Have a Blessed Christmas

Hi Everyone,
It's time for my November Craft-Dee BowZ project. I am leading off with projects that use dies from Diemond Dies along with my bow. This month all the designers at Craft-Dee BowZ have a real treat for you, we are all using Diemond Dies in our projects.

Designers at Craft-Dee BowZ will be posting throughout the month using different Diemond Dies (some designers will be posting several times). To be eligible to win the beautiful die set pictured at Craft-Dee BowZ, be sure to come back to THIS POST at Craft Dee BowZ and leave a comment. Since there will be many projects (posts) throughout the month, for every comment you leave on that post, your name will be put in a pot, giving you more opportunities to win.  And don’t forget, give the designer some love on her blog too.

 Diemond Dies is a company committed to producing American made dies with popular styles that will appeal to scrapbookers, card makers, altered artists, and general paper crafters.  Whether your style is clean and simple, vintage and shabby, or something in between, they have dies for you!

Diemond Dies offers a really great selection. Check out the selection that they offer, here.  Today I am spotlighting the Pine Branch die in my project. This is a great time of the year to use this die.

When I received this die, I envisioned a wreath so that's what I designed for you.

And I really wanted the wreath to stand on it's own so to speak, so I made an easel card.
And here is the card opened.

This is a view from overhead, to give a view of the base and the wreath opened.

Here is a close up of the wreath 

Now its time for you to start thinking about your cards and projects. Hope this gives you some ideas.

I will be back Thursday to showcase another die and the card I made.

I love what you did with that pine bough die so much and had to go to the website and place an order so I have one of my own. I love that it is so big compared to some others I have.

Hi, the blue linky has blocked your entry into my challenge at Crafty Cardmakers because you haven't linked back to us. I have just checked and although our name is there, there is no clickable link to us. If you can correct this before the list closes I will add you by hand.

Great design by the way..... off to look at those dies!
