Candy Cane Ornament Christmas

This card uses the current Candy Cane Designer Series Paper
with retired Blush Blossom card stock.   The card base was run through
the Northern Flurry Big Shot embossing folder and then
swiped with Soft Suede ink to highlight the snowflakes.

The Candy Cane DSP was cut out with the Ornament Punch.

The sentiment comes from the Contempo Christmas set.

This is a quick card, but I love the effect.

Deck the Halls Christmas Tags

I give sets of cards for Christmas presents.   The Deck the Halls Designer Series
Paper enables production of great Christmas tags.  In this example, I used the
Big Shot Two Tags Die to cut out portions of the Deck the Halls DSP.  
All that is left to do is add a pretty bow to adhere these tags to
their respective gift packs.

Candy Cane Elf Shoes

I've seen samples of Christmas elf shoes on many sites,
so decided to try my hand at it.
The shoes were made with the Big Shot Top Note
die and Candy Cane Designer Series Paper (Holiday Mini).
One-half of the Top Note piece is used.  Circle punches were
used to cut out the top of the shoes.  The elf shoes were
decorated with Real Red Grosgrain ribbon bows and
Rhinestones.  Please note that the rhinestones were colored
with permanent markers, to coordinate with the DSP.
The Early Espress "legs" were run through the Big Shot
Square Lattice Embossing Folder to give them texture.

Snow flakes from the Snow Swirled stamp set were
stamped in VersaMark on the Crumb Cake Card base.  
The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was
cut out with the Word Window punch 
and layer on the Modern Label punch.

Candy Cane Treat Bag

This is a Mini Lunch Sack treat bag
which is a nice gift for neighbors or co-workers.

The green strip from the Candy Cane Designer Series Paper was made with the Tasteful Trims Big Shot Die.
It was pieced with other designs from the paper pack and
run through a Big Shot embossing folder to give it texture.

The sentiment comes from the Bells and Boughs set
and is layered on Cherry Cobbler punched out with
the Decorative Label Punch.

All of these products, with the exception of the Spring
Moss Grosgrain ribbon, are contained in the SU
Holiday Mini.
