  1. Mary,, These cards each are so beautiful. You deserve so many more beautiful cards. You give us so many wonderful ideas and inspirations every day. Merry Christmas to you and to all of your customers and your wonderful card makers. They are all very talented people. Merry Christmas, Ellen Hinds

  2. Hello Frenchie and thank you so much for your reply. As a matter of fact, I do have that die but I never knew it can cut cans like that. I’m assuming it doesn’t get damaged in any way since your cutout is so perfect. I imagine you must cut the can somehow to be able to run it through the Big Shot so I’m going to give this a try. Maybe I can also look it up on Google to see if there are any videos that show how to cut the cans. Thank you again for your reply, I love both your cards.

  5. Wow!!!! Love them all. The Peace on Earth card with the World Map by Carol is so touching. Awesome idea! The coke can daisy’s by Frenchie are spectacular, fresh and unique. The Tree card by Marge is just gorgeous. All of the cards are just fabulous with all the bling-bling, washi tape, ribbons and color. Very nicely done by all!

  10. Oh Mary, I absolutely love each and everyone of this gorgeous cards!!! They are all inspirational and beautiful!! The one by Frenchie Humm… it made by any chance with aluminum foil paper? How in the world did she make it??? is it a flower or a snow flake die? The foil paper has some pretty red in it, I’m so intrigued by this card!!!
    Mary, if it’s not to much trouble, can you ask her for me? I’ve never seen anything like it.
    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful cards with us today.
