You'll see projects made with products from the Holiday Catalog which you can see in this Sneak Peek:



I found a cute sentiment that I liked from the Basket of Wishes stamp set and designed my card around that:



I used Watercolor Paper for my stamped layer and will give you all the measurements and instructions below. Notice the pretty Soft Sky Ink background that I colored with an Aqua Painter:


Here are the directions:
  • Card Base: Cajun Craze 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  • Layer #2: Painted Autumn Designer Paper 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Watercolor Paper 4-3/4" x 3". Using an Aqua Painter and the Soft Sky Ink, color a small background on the left. Stamp the flower image from Count My Blessings using Basic Black Ink over the blue background. Color the flower, stem and leaves using the Blender Pen with Sweet Sugarplum and Wild Wasabi Inks. Stamp the sentiment to the right of the flower image using Basic Black Ink. Glue to card front, even with the designer paper on the right.
  • Doily: Glue a small partial doily below the watercolor paper.
  • Banners: Cut (2) banners. One is Cajun Craze Cardstock measuring 1/2" x 4-1/2". Glue over the watercolor paper. Cut the 2nd banner using Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock measuring 1/2" x 4". Layer and glue over the Cajun Craze banner.
  • Twine: Wrap the white twine around the banners twice and tie into a bow.
