This card, I cut 5-1/4 X 10-1/2 making a square 5-1/4" card. I cut the squares 1-1/2" each and centered on the card itself. The cardstock for card is very vanilla and the DSP is "Merry Moments", back and front of one sheet. I used the stamp set "Delightful Decorations" from the new Holiday Mini Catalog and punched it out with the new Ornament Punch. How great is that. I put the ornament, popped dotted, on Chocolate Chip and Real Red Cardstock. Also used the Merry Christmas from the same set and used a 1" punch.
This card is a 4-1/4" square card. For card base, I used the Garden Green textured paper. I then cut two ovals, real red and used the "merry moments" DSP. Then I did the joy ornament and embossed it with gold on real red cardstock and layered Garden Green and Real Red under it. Also, I used the cuddlebug to do the strip of real red and used the snow flakes embossing folder. Very easy to do and makes it look a little more elegant. I embossed the Merry Christmas also, which I am sure you noticed, is not quite straight. Another one of those that gives it character as my daughter says. lol Used three gold brads to finish it off. Now get started making your cards. As you can see, I am ahead at this point. Thanks for looking.
