Create with Connie & Mary WINTER13 01!

Happy Saturday and welcome to my blog today. So glad you could stop in and visit! Today I have the first card on our Create with Connie & Mary's Winter Collection challenge. These Saturday Challenges will last for 4 weeks. If you haven't visited yet, we have our Winter Collection 2013 Subscription going on where you will have access to lots and lots of tutorials for projects. If you want ideas for your Christmas cards or holiday decor, this is the place to get them!

And now on to this week's Saturday Challenge for our subscribers:

And my card:

I do have to say that this is the first time I try out our new "Foil Sheets" that are available for purchase in our "Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog". They come in Gold or Silver. Today's card uses the silver and I embossed it using the "Honeycomb Embossing Folder":

I also used it the cut out my ornament using the "Christmas Ornament Punch". I also used the small designer paper stack called " Winter Frost". What a great way to get a sampling of Christmas paper. The pack has 48 sheets that measure 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" and are double-sided with different patterns.

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Silver Foil Sheets
  • Inks: Pool Party
  • DSP: Winter Frost Paper Stack
  • Tools: Christmas Ornament Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Big Shot Machine, Honeycomb Embossing Folder
  • Stamps: Calm Christmas
