#2 of Twelve Cards of Christmas

Hello Stamping Friends,

(If you are viewing this in your email, it is just a current blog post.  For the entire blog where you will find other great ideas just click on the little SAL pal to the left to be redirected.)

Welcome to all my new blog followers!  I plan on giving you lots of fun ideas for Christmas cards!

I have two events coming up with room left if you are interested.

Saturday, November 21, at 10:00 AM I will be teaching a Christmas boxes class at the Crossroads Church on 9900 S Twenty Mile Road.  It is $10 to make six boxes, two curvy keepsakes, two pillow boxes, and two gift bags with the gift bag punch board.  Call me at 303-815-0838 and I will get kits made for you!

While at the Denver Merchandise Mart for a scrapbooking event I found a booth called PineconePress and they had a most interesting slider gift card.  I immediately thought how nice the card would look with stamped images and beautiful Stampin’ Up! designer paper.  So here is my creation resized to fit our SU products:

I challenged myself to use all the greetings in the Versatile Christmas stamp set (page 26 of the holiday catalog).  Stampin’ Up! listened to our request for more stamp sets with outside and inside greetings and this one is awesome with great fonts and verses!  A gift card seemed the best way to use “The gift of LOVE, the gift of PEACE, the gift of HEALTH & HAPPINESS….. May all these be yours at CHRISTMAS”.  Stay tuned for the next three cards which will use the other verses.  Of course you must have a direction sheet which I will also post here and to the recipe box on the main blog!

Additionally, you may want to buy the envelope punch board, page 150 of the big book, item #133774 for $20; and the red envelope paper, page 26 of the Holiday catalog, item #139604, 20 sheets of 12 X 12 for $6.00.  With the envelope punch board and a 3 1/2″  X  6 1/2″ piece of red envelope paper you can make the perfect envelope!

 Another great thing Stampin’ Up! is doing for us is showing us a list of what will retire with the current Holiday Catalog.  We usually hold our breath hoping our favorites reappear next year but now we will know for sure what is gone and what will be carried over.  Click on the link for a list of the retiring items.
