cards, Stampin' Up!


Have you checked out the Holiday Catalogue yet??? What is on your wish list??  There are so many great products it is hard to choose.  I have the link in the right side bar for you to check out if you haven’t already. I was playing with some of the new things they other day I made up this set of cards to show you.  They are using the new ‘Christmas Greetings’ Thinlets.  I have a little trick I wanted to tell you about.


I will show you each card close up so you can see them better.  The layouts were inspired by some cards I had seen on Pinterest.

I cut a circle from Cherry Cobbler card and then embossed it with the Woodland Embossing Folder. There is some lovely Vellum sheets in the Holiday Catalogue but I don’t have them as yet so I have used the Gold Fancy Foil Vellum from the Annual Catalogue.  I adhered some Whisper White card on to the back of the vellum. Don’t you just love the cute Reindeer clips??? I tied some Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine onto them.  I cut the words from the ‘Christmas Greetings’ Thinlets (p34) from Gold Foil Sheets.




TIP: In this set of Thinlets there are 3 words “peace”, “merry” and “jolly”.  Now I didn’t want jolly for this so when I cut the word I then carefully snipped off the “ll’s”.  If you cut it off near to the “l” letters then you have a little tail.  I adhered the tail of the “y” over the “o” tail.  Does that make sense?  Using the new Fine Tip Glue Pen (p 43) it makes it easy to adhere the letters together and  also adhere the letters to the circle.  You only need a very little bit let me tell you.  I found that you needed to just hold the piece down for a minute to take hold.

Hope you like these cards.  I’m loving playing with this new stuff.  Go check the catalogue out if you haven’t already done so.

Have an awesome day 🙂
