Brushed-silver-cardHope you've all had a wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus… I've had a wonderful time catching up with family and friends, and taking a few moments to catch my breath!

I thought I'd share my Christmas card design with you. If you've been following my blog at all, you'll know that I like to do cards that look great but aren't too finicky. This one suited me to a T! I used the Simply Scored tool to create a few score lines around the edge of the card, and then used my Big Shot to die cut a snowflake from Brushed Silver metallic paper. I silver embossed my greeting to create a tone on tone effect, which I really like!

Glimmer-cardI then had a brainwave as I had stocked up on some of the fantastic silver Glimmer Paper carried in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Mini Catalogue – and this is the "bling" version of my card…not so much subtle elegance but more in your face! (still love it, perhaps even more…).

If you LOOOOOVE the glimmer paper like I do, you may want to stock up on a few sheets before they go – they don't appear in the Occasions Mini Catalogue (though fingers crossed they may make a future appearance in a mini catalogue or the next Idea Book?? No guarantees though!).  One thing that I _know_ will NOT be carried over (because Stampin' Up! has warned demonstrators already!) – the cute stocking builder punch! So if you fell in love with that punch, you may want to consider getting one before they disappear!!  The Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalogue sales period ends January 3rd – so place your online order HERE (take a look at the Clearance Rack while you're at it…) or contact me.
