Merry Little Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today’s card share is a simple holiday wish.  I love using the new foil sheets in the Holiday catalog …

I began with the idea of embossing the “Foil sheets” on page 28 of the Holiday Catalog, I chose the silver.  The foil sheets are thicker than paper, but not as thick as cardstock… so they are very easy to use.


Not really sure why I chose the color Real Red to go with my card … I guess it just called out to me.  However, this simple pattern could be repeated with any of our beautiful colors as well.

My emboss folder of choice was the new “Stylish Stripes” – pg. 22 of the Holiday catalog.  Don’t you just love the simplicity of this embossing folder and the way the stripes run, it just emulates Christmas.  It gives it a classy look done in the silver foil.

Once my silver foil sheet was embossed, I searched for a greeting.  I wanted something that expressed just a bit more than Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays … so I chose the “Merry Little Christmas” stamp set on page 27 of the Holiday catalog.  Stamped it in Real Read onto Whisper White cardstock …. Hmmm, I needed something to tie these together with the foil.


Then it hit me … wrap the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine “into” the grooves of the Stylish Stripes embossing folder!  Genius!  OK … well maybe I’m not a genius, and it could possibly have been done before, but I thought it looked really cool!   I love the “candy stripe” look that it adds, especially with the silver.  Who say’s you can’t be fun and classy  at the same time!

To finish it off, I tied a little bow and secured it to the greeting, then popped my greeting up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card … I’d love to hear what YOU think.

Have a simply awesome day!
