As you can see I actually ended up making 8 cards and I do still have a few scraps of paper left over. It's really amazing what you can do with one sheet of 12"x12" DSP and a few sheets of cardstock.
I used a piece of DSP from the new Christmas paper called Candy Cane Lane and paired that up with the stamps from our new set called Holly Berry Happiness. The colours in the paper are Real Red, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Whisper White. I also incorporated red and gold glimmer cardstock and a few of the new twines and embellishments from the Holiday catalogue.
Ok so I'm warning you in advance that this is about to get pretty picture heavy and your wishlist is about to grow!!
Phew and there we have them. I don't actually think I can pick a favorite because every time I finished a pair, they then become my best ones.
I pretty much kept the basic layout of each pair of cards the same and just changed them up by using the reverse side of the DSP and swapping between Real Red, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso cardstock.
Here is a copy of my one sheet wonder instruction sheet. Sorry it's a little rough, but I just wote it up as I made them. Hopefully you get the idea!!
I thought you might like a closer looks at a some of the cute little trinkets and twine we have in the new catalogue.
It's a bit hard to see in this photo, but I have also added a touch of red metallic thread to my doily. The thread comes in both red and green and is just as beautiful as our other metallic threads.
On this next card I have used some of new, red foil and white bakers twine and then attached a few little jingly bells to the end. You can just see the bells in the top right corner above the holly branch. I was so excited to see the bells in the catty, as I think they are such a beautiful finishing touch. They come in silver and matte red and there are 60 in a pot. Oh, yes they do tinkle!!
