Christmas in August

Good Saturday Morning to you!  Wanted to share this last night but was so tired, I could not think to write the post, so here it is bright and early Saturday!  Stamping 411 has not just one great sketch this week, but two great sketches and they are also offering a prize this week. 

The card I am showcasing today is of course using one of the stamping 411 sketches and the new specialty designer paper that is in the new Stampin' Up! holiday mini.  I was not sure of how I would like this designer paper, but I think it turned out wonderful for this card and a wonderful way to use the paper to showcase it.  I also used the new Dazzling Details that is in the holiday mini.  I am not sure I like what it did to the ink, but it does look better in person.  So I will use it again.  I guess you could say this card is a preview of what is in the mini as I also used the new Cherry Cobbler 3/8" quilted satin ribbon.  BEAUTIFUL!  Until I started this post did not realize what all I had used! LOL

Here is another view of the card!

I love taking different views as you get great detail from each view.

Now to the inside of the card!

How great is this?  Don't forget to do the insides of the card.  It really makes a difference.
