A Holly Jolly Christmas card

Here's my stamping inspiration for today... I created this card for a swap I participated in a few weeks ago. When the holiday catalogue came out, the first thing I had to have was the NEW label bracket punch - I love the ease of punches, the fun backgrounds and other shapes you can create with a punch! I punched the bracket 3 times in Island Indigo cardstock and stamped the "Holly Jolly" Christmas greeting in Bermuda bay and punched it out. I rotated the Island indigo to be like a shadow effect for the stamp. The stamp set "Tags for you" has a Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine's day, and Halloween Greeting plus, a genaric "To: and From:" greeting.

I also used the NEW Winter Frost stack - it contains 48 sheets of 4 1/2 X 6 1/2" designer paper, perfect for cardmaking.

I added some 1" squares punched in Bermuda bay to the center of the bracket punches, circles looked cute too, but I went for the squares and added some sparkle with the stars punched out with Silver glimmer paper. Lastly, before I assembled the mat to the card base I paper pierced the scallops for a nice effect. With a bit of the new 1/8" Silver ribbon to make it like an ornament - love this ribbon, so silky and shiny!
