Back to Christmas!

You just never know where I'm going next.  After a couple of Halloween posts I'm back to Christmas!  Here are 2 more of the swap cards I got last Saturday at the Fall Retreat.  First, a catalog CASE.  This is on page 35 of the Stampin' Up Idea Book and Catalog as an accent to a scrapbook page.  Just punch fewer Ornament punches and add it to a card for another great look!  Some of the ornaments were punched from Designer Series paper and some is cardstock stamped with the Delightful Decorations stamp set that matches the Ornament Punch.  I really like it when they make stamp sets that coordinate with punches to make it quicker to make great cards and scrapbook pages without having to do all that hand cutting.

Second is a card shared by Thelma Collins.  She always makes great cards and this swap was no different.  She embossed the great new Northern Flurry Embossing Folder onto Soft Suede cardstock and added a strip of DSP to adhere the squares stamped with 2 images from the Jolly Bingo Bits (a new set in the Holiday Mini) and 1 image from the Delightful Decorations set.  A punched border of Baja Breeze tops off the card perfectly!

What a novel idea using the ornament punch. Very nice swaps also. I'm a new follower from SC.
