I am SO excited there is only 2 days left before the new Holiday Mini is available to all of you! I was asked to participate in a swap with past and present Rising Star award achievers. The timing worked out great for me and I was able to participate. The Holiday Mini is always my favorite mini catalog that comes out and this year isn't any different! There were 32 participants in this swap which was a lot but I had a great time playing with the new items! Here is my card...
I used the new set "Christmas Lodge" from the Holiday Mini. This is a fun set and it would be great for anyones Christmas card. Just love the house image! I stamped the house with Whisper White Craft Ink and then heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I didn't want it stark white so I decided to give this a try and I liked the outcome.
The Designer Series Paper is from the "Letters to Santa" pack which is in the Idea Book & Catalog. I just love blue, green and brown and this paper fit the card perfectly. If you look close you will see I used the new Snow Burst Textured Embossing Folder on the Letters to Santa DSP. Just love the textured it gives.
The button is from the Subtles Collection and has a Mini Jingle Bell tied in the center. These bells are just adorable and I loved fitting it with a button! These are also in the new mini and only $2.95 for 48 bells! Too cute!
I am a banner freak and loved how the greeting fit perfectly as a banner. Yes, I am also addicted to the Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch. I love the small scallops this punch gives and adds just the right amount of detail to a card.
I hope you've enjoyed browsing the Holiday Mini catalog. If you haven't received yours please let me know and I will get one out to you. On Thursday you will also be able to order from this mini and start creating with these new wonderful products!
Have fun creating and remember you can order anytime online by clicking on the "Order Online" button at the top right hand side of this page.
