Day 14: First Christmas card of 2012

It's a quick one today but I really like the final result!

This is purely Stampin Up products because I got a new shipment on Friday and I wanted to play, play, play!! It was mostly holiday catalogue items so Christmas is my theme!!

I feel like kraft paper (Crumb Cake for SU folks) is going to be way more in my life soon. LOL. And plain white paper. Its funny how your style changes, hey b'y?

Here's my end result:

INTRODUCING the Snow Festival collection from Stampin Up.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  It's a bit different for the SU style so I am a huge fan.  This paper pack uses a gumball green color, which is a new In Color in 2012-2013. It really accents the Cherry Cobbler color. The owl paper is just a 5"x1" piece of paper.  There is Cherry cobbler card stock underneath which is 5"x1.5".  And finally the green gumball patterned start paper is 4"x5". To top it off I added the cherry cobbler baker's twine.  There is a new pack of mini punches in town called the Merry Mini Punch Pack in the new holiday catalogue (there is also a super cute stamp set to go with this).  I punched a couple ornaments out and added a mini silver brad for a bit of bling.  To add my sentiment I first tried to emboss but I did that miserably... I then covered it up with some So Saffron card stock with "Happy Holidays" from the 'Many Merry Messages' stamp set. Note that the crumb cake, so saffron, gumball green and cherry cobbler all match in this paper pack.

Anyways, I really like how this came out especially on the Crumb Cake cardstock paper.  Never too early to think about Christmas if you ask me... HA!

Here's a closer look at the ornament punch from the merry mini punch pack:

Alright! Time to watch Big Brother!!! I am a HUGE fan!! :)
