Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I am really excited to share today’s card with you as it comes from one of the first suites I had to get my hands on when this Mini Catalog game out, and now it’s on the retiring list 😦
The Boughs of Holly Designer Series paper is simply stunning and is the backdrop for my card. I layered the poinsettia pattern with the Evening Evergreen and Cherry Cobbler which creates such a beautifully rich look.
To add a holiday touch, I die cut the frame from the Gold Metallic Specialty paper and it seems to make the centers of the poinsettia really pop out. I also die cut a piece of the designer paper with several green shaded to put behind the leaves.
To keep the deep rich them of my card going … I heat embossed a piece of Cherry Cobbler with Clear Embossing powder and die cut the cherries. I also cut the detailed part of the cherry in the Gold Metallic paper. To bring in the deep green from the designer paper, I cut 3 sprigs from the Evening Evergreen cardstock.
A simple piece of white Bakers Twine behind the leaves complimented the white used for the greeting. Then I added a few of the Gold Holly Leaves to balance out the entire assembly. To complete my card, I added a piece of the designer paper onto the Basic White and then layered a piece of Evening Evergreen behind the Basic White.
If you take a good look at my card, then flip to page 24 on the Mini Catalog you will see where I got my inspiration from!! I think our catalogs are a great place for inspiration, and if you have shopped with me in the past year … You are on my mailing list and will be receiving the upcoming Jan – June Mini and Sale-a-bration Catalogs!! Woot Woot!! Just my way of saying “Thanks” for choosing me as your demonstrator ❤
Thank you so much for joining me today, I hope I inspired you with these rich, warm colors.
Have a great weekend!!
Here is a list of supplies that I used to create today’s card ….

I’m so far behind I don’t even know when the retiring list ends, but given my experience with SU, if it’s retiring, they’ll come up with another version later, and Linda will come up with something equally stunning (or even more so) to stamp with it at that time!
Beautiful card. Very elegant. The colors are so rich. This card would be enjoyed by all.
Thank you Kathie for those sweet words ❤ Have a beautiful weekend.
