Perfectly Plaid with Gold

The Wrapped in Plaid DSP has some great colour combinations and some of the sheets have gold foil accents. I chose a pattern with both red and green plus the gold accents for this card.


I stamped the trees with veramark on both cherry cobbler and very vanilla cardstock and then sprinkled with gold embossing powder.  Use the coordinating Pine Tree Punch and you have beautiful trees for your card.  A matching tree punched from the DSP completes the cards focal point.
Adapted from a card by Stesha Bloodhart.

Brightly Gleaming Ornaments

I found this card online and I loved the simplicity and the way that it showcased all the great items in the Brightly Gleaming Suite.  So my inspiration for this card came from Penni Behr.

The pattern of the DSP on the bottom of the card is one of my favourites,  I love the ornament colours and the copper ornaments.  I used the Holiday Rhinestones to add colour to the top of the card.


I used Copper embossing powder for the 2 large ornaments and copper foil for the small ornament.  I punched the small ornament out first before embossing.

Christmas Snowman

I fell in love with another of the DSP patterns in the Holiday Catalogue and decided to make a card using the paper only as I did not get the matching stamp set.
I used a snowman from the DSP that I fussy cut as the focal point for my card.


The DSP circle was punched using the 2-1/4" circle punch and the snowman was added on top with dimensionals.
