Non-traditional Holiday Card

If you would like to spread holiday wishes to your friends who do not celebrate Christmas, go for colors other than the traditional red and green. 

My Whisper White cardstock base was embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder, and then another layer of Whisper White was stamped with the Hello, Doily stamp in Versa Mark ink and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  A large neutral brad was placed in the center, and the whole layer was placed on with dimensionals.  I also embossed the Happy Holidays sentiment as well.  

The following were used:
Cardstock:  Whisper White #100730
Stamp Sets:  Hello, Doily #122845, Holiday Happiness #120786 wood or #120792 clear
Ink:  Versa Mark #102283
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Snow Burst Embossing Folder #124096 (Holiday Mini), Silver Embossing Powder #109131, Dimensionals #104430
Embellishment:  5/8" Neutral Brad #112533
Punch:  Large Oval #119855

You still have time to order products to make your own holiday cards and projects.  Just go to my on-line store and place your order and have the items shipped directly to your home.  Share the joy of Christmas and the holidays by making your own handmade items. 

If you are stuck on gifts for someone on your list here are a few things I have made in the past and will probably do so again this year: 
..make a box of handmade cards for all occasions and add a roll of postage stamps.
If they love creating -
..make up card kits for those who love to stamp.
..purchase a Stampin' Up! gift certificate through me and let them shop away.
..make a ribbon bundle using a variety of Stampin' Up! ribbon.
..make a gift box full of embellishments like buttons and brads.
..put together an adhesive bundle adding dimensionals, snail, sticky strip, etc. so they are never without their favorite adhesive
..create precut Designer Series Paper or cardstock packs.
and the list goes on.  I know I love getting Stampin' Up! products for Christmas, and I know you probably know someone else who would too.
