Out of the box Beautiful Season

 This is one of my holiday cards we made for my November workshop. Love the pop of color and the out of the box technique.
Stamp the image from Beautiful Season with StazOn black or memento black Tuxedo black.  Stamp Merry from Pennant Parade set in Real Red.  Put the die from Apothecary Accents Framelits (my favorite die right now!) to see how you want it cut.
Lightly pencil in the inside margins to figure out how far you need to cut the images that you want to stick out.

Put the section you want to stick out over the diecut frame so it will not be cut (the blade of the dies should face down) and this is how it should look after you diecut it.

I used the diecut itself to make the frame.  Took a piece of real red CS same width as the diecut then traced the top and bottom with a pencil to cut it out then flipped it over to make sure the pencil mark did not show before I layered it.  The straight edge sides made it easy.
