The Best Things in Life: Christmas

As I have been thinking about my Stampin'Up Christmas sets and which ones I would be using for this years cards I got diverted ( not the first time) and saw this sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set.....
"The Best Things in Life aren't things"

It kinda of sums up the idea of focusing on what really matters
during this SEASON of JOY!

It was really easy to pull the card together using the Seasons of Style  Designer Stack in the Holiday mini! 48 sheets gives you enough to make all kinds of cards. There are 4 designs , I featured 2 of them and come in a 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" size sheet. Featured colors in the pack include Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Crumb Cake , Choc Chip and  a goldish color between crushed curry and summer starfruit. I will be showing you more samples soon, as I have been on a roll with this paper.

The sketch was inspired by the Challenge at Create with Connie and Mary, plus EARLY BIRD sign ups have started for their WINTER Tutorial Collection. Four Full weeks of Christmas and Winter projects. 3-D and card ideas (24 in All) and only for about $1.00 each.

Just to add some fun to my card I decided to make a Poinsettia like embellishment using the MOSAIC PUNCH. Simply punch and cut it down the middle or punch 1/2 of it with the straight edge of the paper down the middle of the mosaic design on the punch. Punch a Cherry Cobbler 3/4" circle and overlap the points of the mosaic on the underside of the circle. Alternate colors of Whisper White and Crumb Cake card stock.

Christmas has to have some sparkle right? I punched seven , Silver Glimmer paper 1/4" circles and glued them in place. Love that sparkle!
