Today’s Christmas card began with a Thick Very Vanilla card base, layered with Toile Tidings Designer Paper. Isn’t the red checked paper fabulous?

Sparkly Boughs


TIP: Toile Tidings Designer Paper has a vanilla background, so matches Very Vanilla Cardstock, rather than Whisper White.

I used the largest Stitched Rectangles Die to cut the Designer Paper, and the second largest to cut the top layer of Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock. Then, using a Beautiful Boughs Die, I cut a bough from Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock.


Next, comes the really fun part! Did you see page 41 in the Holiday catalog? There’s a close-up showing two new products, Shimmery Crystal Effects and Ice Stampin’ Glitter, that I applied to my bough.

TIP: The Shimmery Crystal Effects acts as glue, and you sprinkle on the Ice Stampin’ Glitter the same way you use Embossing Powder, but without having to heat set it.


My beautiful, sparkly bough was making me think of antlers, so I found my favorite reindeer from the Detailed Deer Die Set. He is made of woodgrain paper from Pressed Petals Designer Paper. I layered him for thickness and placed him on Dimensionals.

“Joy to the World” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede Ink.
