Christmas Wishes from Across the Miles

Hi Stampers,

Here's a Christmas card I created for friends in far-flung places.  I really like the color combination of bold Emerald Envy and soft, subtle Mint Macaron.  You can see how well these colors work together in the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper.

 You may recognize the globe, it's from a stamp set in the annual catalog called Places You'll Go - #141741.

I think this stamp set is easy to overlook in the annual catalog.  The images are simple, but the sentiments are wonderful and work for a lot of occasions.

Here's the inside of my card:

Here are the details:  The globe stand is stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder.  The wreath was stamped in Emerald Envy.  I used my Real Red Stampin' Write Marker to add a few red berries around the wreath.  The rest of the stamping was done with the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set.  The bow and the holly berries were stamped in Early Espresso ink on Real Red cardstock.  The holly leaves were stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Emerald Envy cardstock.  Everything is punched with the Holly Berry Builder Punch.  The stamp set & punch are available as a bundle - #143505.  The card base is made from Mint Macaron cardstock and the Designer Paper is Presents & Pinecones.

My card was inspired by a design from another Stampin' Up demonstrator.  Here is her version:
