Cookie Cutter Christmas

Hi Stampers!

Welcome to the first of many projects from the fabulous 2016 Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog!

This card showcases one of my favorite new bundles, Cookie Cutter Christmas.  This stamp set has the cutest images.  In addition to gingerbread men, there's a reindeer, Santa, Eskimo, and a bear, plus coordinating greetings and accents like the hearts you see here.

This little guy is cute all on his own, but I had the idea that one was not enough, so I decided to stack them up like gymnasts...must still be thinking about the Rio Olympics!  My card base is Crumb Cake. I stamped the gingerbread men in Early Espresso and punched them out with the coordinating punch. The same punch also made the hearts, which are punched from Real Red.  My greeting and the background stamp are both from Holly Jolly Greetings, stamped in Real Red.  The designer paper is the new Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.  There's also Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine, which comes in a 2-spool pack, Real Red and Whisper White with red metallic thread running through it.

Here's the inside of my card:
The sentiment is from Cookie Cutter Christmas, and the stars are part of the Holly Jolly Greetings stamp set.

Another thing I really like about this bundle is that there is another stamp set in the Holiday Catalog that uses this punch - Cookie Cutter Halloween!  The characters in that set include a scarecrow, mummy, skeleton & Dracula.  Two stamp sets and one punch can take care of your crafting needs for Halloween and Christmas!

The Holiday Catalog is available to order from starting today, September 1.

Happy shopping,
