Star studded Christmas



This is another new Christmas set in the Holiday Mini 2007 catalog. You can purchase these sets starting Sept. 1st. They are fabulous. I really like this set because the greetings tell more about what Christmas is all about: Jesus. The verses tell more about Jesus instead of being just generic "Holiday" greetings. This used the new holiday designer paper which is in lovely artichoke, river rock and pomegranite colors in baroque patterns. It is very elegant looking. Great for quick Christmas cards.

I used artichoke card front, artichoke craft ink for the chipboard circle ring. I used pomegranite ink on the star stamp, cut it out, and took my 2 way glue pen to trace the edges and then I added dazzling diamonds glitter. Very nice subtle POP! I also used the pomegranite stitched ribbon.

The second card: artichoke card base, holiday designer paper, mellow moss paper, river rock, and artichoke inks. I used artichoke ribbon as well. Very green Christmas card, but still pretty.

What do you think?

Love the designer paper on these cards and the way you layered the chipboard. Simple, yet very elegant! Just my style!
