Christmas Packaging and Cards

Hi there! I am so excited that I am playing along with the Twofer Challenge, something I have wanted to play in for a long time.( I might have played once before )  You must stop by and see some of the design teams beautiful inspiration cards. 
All you have to do is use the same die, stamp , etc in two different ways. I hope I got it covered, just to be safe I have 3 different ways :)

 I used my new Natures Gift Die  from The Stamp Market and my sentiment from Papertrey Ink:

 I made many of these greenery branches, some for packages and many for cards. 
I used my shimmer pens to change up the colors of the cardstock.
I changed the berries from white to shades of red and green to craft cardstock.

I love adding watercolor cardstock for the front panel, just adds a bit more texture. I get mine from Hobby Lobby.
Thank you for the visit today and my you find peace in your day.


  1. two beautiful cards, MaryBeth - look like winners to me

  2. That's such a lovely greenery sprig, Marybeth ... so soft and cosy in the kraft on white ... and rich and bright in that fabulous festive red with green! The simple sentiment is just perfect ... says everything that's needed at Christmas! Oh, fabulous tag too ... love that the sprig is hanging off the edge! Hugs to you, my friend, Anita :)

    1. ... and thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer ... it's a treat to see you in the gallery! Hugs again, Anita :)

  3. Three fabulous ways to use this die cut branch, Marybeth! The perfect sentiment!

  4. A trio of loveliness Marybeth! I love the way the sprig looks on the kraft wrapped package!

  5. Beautiful, Marybeth! These Christmas sprigs of green leaves and berries ~ custom made in many colors ~ are fantastic on both packages and cards! What a great idea and so versatile, which we all need during the holidays!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #22! Hugs, Darnell xxoo

  6. I'll admit I've been eyeing this Stamp Market very tempting, and especially as I see how YOU'VE used it! These are just gorgeous, Marybeth. Just by adding your shimmer pens to the branches you've changed them dramatically, and I noticed and wondered about that; love this sweet little technique! Two very elegant cards, and a sweet tag! Thank you for joining us at Twofer Challenge. Sending hugs!! Bev

  7. These look great! I'll have to try the craft punches! Thanks for sharing this tutorial!
