The wait is over! My Holiday Mini catalogiue pre-order has arrived. It was so exciting to open the box and see all the new Halloween, Fall and Christmas products.
One of the first products that caught my eye was the Candy Cane Specialty designer series paper that I used on this card. Can you see the red glitter stripes and polka dots? Wow!
Since I couldn’t decide which paper in this package to use first, I decided to make a pyramid card so I could use multiple patterns. Click here to see another example of a pyramid card.
After layering the various papers, I stamped a snowman and greeting from A Cute Christmas in Real Red ink and coloured the snowman in with markers. Scroll down for a tip to make your stamping easier. The only other embellishment on this card is a Real Red Big Designer Button with Blushing Bride "paper thread".
One of my favourite things about this new Holiday Mini catalogue is the fact that Stampin’ Up! has highlighted two different themes. The first is Deck the Halls which features Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake. The second theme is Candy Cane which I used on my card. The featured colours for this theme are Real Red, Garden Green, Baja Breeze and Blushing Bride.
Deck the Halls is a little more elegant and Candy Cane is a little more fun and whimsical.
Both themes have designer series paper, fabric, buttons, ribbons and stamps to match. This years Christmas card will be a snap!
