Delightful Decorations ......

This is a set of cards I have just made for my Sister, I have used my favourite traditional Christmas colours.




I have used a selection of Christmas papers from the Christmas Jingle scrap booking kit (perfect for cards as well!!) and the new Jolly Holiday papers, with some whisper white taffeta ribbon and very vanilla grosgrain ribbon.  The colours are Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler (the most beautiful deep red!) You will also see some of the new gems and pearls on these cards as Stampin' Up! now sell them in packs - the gems are certainly more sparkly than any others I have tried before!!


I have used 2 stamp sets, Delightful Decorations and Contempo Christmas, and of course the fabulous new bauble punch!!!  It is perfect for making quick cards like this as there is no cutting - simply stamp, punch and add a dimensional!!!  All of the punches from Stampin' Up! are a new flat locking design, making them perfect for stacking and saving precious storage space.
