Welcome! I’ve got an oldie, but goodie for you today. The Christmas Gleaming Variety Bundle is a returning favorite and the 10% discount remains in place. It’s what I’m going to refer to as a mega bundle. Why? Because it’s filled with a 9-piece stamp set, two punches and a fabulous package of specialty designer series paper.

Today’s Christmas card will show off all that copper foiling goodness. The only problem I had, was to make a decision on which papers to use. One is more beautiful than the next.

By stamping the lovely ornament in versa mark, I was able to emboss the image in copper. That gave the card another level of richness. And, it made it super easy to add some additional color with my Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend.

Look at all those yummy layers. To make that ornament pop just a little more, I cut the focal die-cut with one of the dies from Ornate Layers. Is that set on your wish list? Want to get 10% off? You’re in luck. Stampin’ Up! is having a SALE!!

By embossing my focal mat with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder, I was able to mimic the design in the DSP accent band. That was a happy design accident.

And of course, I couldn’t discard scraps of the DSP. So, I’ve added an accent band on the inside of the card to dress things up. Watch how easy this card comes together.
