A Merry Little Christmas

DSCF5121

In the crafting world, it's never too early for Christmas, right? I couldn't wait to play with my a few new SU goodies from the new Holiday Mini!

Pretend that you can feel the cool flocking on the red and white panel, and that you can see the gold shimmer on the striped panel!!! A little busy, but I just had to use these images together! TFL! Edited to add: this also qualifies for the Day 188 Challenge at 365 Cards--Touchy Feely--to use flocking or felt on your card!

  • Stamps: Christmas Punch (hostess)
  • Paper: Real Red, Brushed Gold, Christmas Cocoa Specialty, Whisper White
  • Ink: Real Red
  • Acc: Big Shot, Swirls Scribble, Merry Details dies, Gold Brads, Organdy Ribbon, Wide Oval Punch

I will be having some more holiday cards in the coming days! Before I sign off, I wanted to share a lovely card I got from my new friend Cathy.....she, Denise and I went shopping together and you can see her here. Isn't this sweet? You probably cannot see the wonderful shimmer and glimmer on the vase--it is beautiful! All the details she puts into her cards make her a stand-out stamper! Thanks, Cathy!

  3. Oh what a beautiful holiday card, LeAnne! Don't ya just LOVE that new paper? I do!! I love the tag & little bird you put on this! Cute, cute, cute!
    And that RAK card from Cathy is just so pretty!! I still have that retired set from SU and never use it. Her card has inspired me to pull it out and play with it over the long weekend! Her paper was so neat! TFS

  5. What a great Christmas card. If you can not make a 'slightly busy' card at Christmas, when can you???
    I am crazy about that flocked paper, you did great with it.

  8. I'm putting this on all my friend's blogs who make cards that I admire. Coluzzal has stopped making the foam cutting pad for their templates and cutter. Do you know where I can find one?

  10. I kinda like that busy look myself! The the contrast is very appealing, and I love the swirls. Cathy's card is really cool with that dsp and the neat coloring! Wish I'd have been able to go and meet her (along with you and Denise) that day too, maybe next time:)
    Have a great holiday weekend!
