New Winter/Christmas catalogue

Its that time of year, August is just gone and so it must be nearly time for Christmas right?  So here are some cards I made using a couple of new products in the Winter/Christmas catalogue.

These are really quick and easy to make.  The punched holes along the bottom edge of each card are made using the punches in the new Punch Pack, (there is also a set of little stamps that go with them, which I will have just as soon as my next delivery comes) I measured the pucnh width and marked where I anted eac punch to go in pencil on the back of my card. 

Then I stuck a strip of patterned paper on the bottom edge of the inside fothe card so that it shows through the holes when the card is shut.  The patterned papers are from the Festival of Prints DSP Stack, which gives you 48 sheets of double sided paper which are 11.4 x 16.5 cm or 4.5 x 6.5".  This is a really useful card sized little pack of papers and although they are Christmassy colours the prints could be used at any time of year. 

Finally I tied a piece of ribbon around the card and stamped it with a greeting in coordinating ink.  The cardstock used was Lucky Limeade, Bashful Blue and Soft Suede, the little greeting was from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Supplies details are below if you'd like them.
