Here's the first:
I used several of my favorite products on this card! The color scheme is very traditional and features two of our richest colors, Cherry Cobbler and Emerald Envy. The ornamental piece on the sleigh is also the new copper foil paper. Boy is that gorgeous on just about anything! The sentiment was easy to cut out using the new layering ovals featured in the Annual Catalog. The sleigh is cut using framelits as well and though I didn't use it in this card, there is a coordinating stamp set. I will be coming back to this set with more card ideas! Here's a look at the set itself:
As you can see, lots of possibilities! I would even use the tree and deer for non-Christmas cards... maybe a hunting themed-birthday card for a guy!
Do you need to jump start some Christmas cards this year? I have lots of ideas and Stampin'Up! even has a kit if you want to get on the fast track. Check this out:
This fun kit combines some gorgeous stamping and papers with minimal stitching for a very quaint, homemade look! It's called "Stitched with Cheer" project kit (#142012) and comes with supplies to make 18 cards. You will also need the coordinating stamp set "Stitched with Cheer" (#142182). All of these supplies are listed below and I would love to get your started if you need some ideas!
Meanwhile, happy stampin!
