Stuck on Christmas cards


Snow Swirled is one of the new sets that has just come out from Stampin' Up! On this card I have used the new 'In Color' Pacific Point for the ink, cardstock and striped ribbon. The background is heavy duty aluminum foil that I have run through the Cuttlebug, trimmed to size and mounted on the cardstock. I used two Stampin' Up! punches - the Round Tab and the new Wide Oval. The ribbon has a piece of the Styled Silver Hodgepodge around the center and is secured using mini Glue Dots. I just had to add some Crystal Stickles to the tree for the glitz.

I even did a scond card using the Doodle This set and making another Poinsettia this time using Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke. The Designer Paper is retired from Stampin' Up! and really goes well with this card. A pearl from the Pretties Kit is in the center. I think I will soon be needing another Pretties Kit as I am running very low on some of the items.
