Encircled in Warmth Card Ideas

Blog Hop-Trip Achievers  Welcome to a new round of blog hopping with the global group of Incentive Trip Achievers.  What is our blog hop about?  It's about inspiring YOU with our creativity.  Big thanks to Kylie Bertucci for organizing this blog hop!

I have a card idea for you today featuring Encircled in Warmth stamp set from the Holiday Catalog which coordinates with some dies from the annual catalog--Encircled in Beauty.  Once again Stampin' Up! delivers tons of value and product coordination by giving us a bundle in the annual catalog of stamps and dies and then offers us a Christmas stamp set that coordinates!

  • My rather unusual color scheme is pulled directly from the lovely Painted Christmas DSP.  A pink Christmas card?  Why not??!!!
  • Cherry Cobbler & Gold 1/2" Metallic Ribbon delivers a LOT of shimmer and shine.
  • Wintry Embossing Folders give you TWO awesome options for textural interest:  snowflakes and pine foliage.  I opted for the pine of my Encircled in Warmth card.
  • By using Elegant Faceted Gems for my embellishment, I had 3 colors to choose from and they all work.  This was one of the cards we made at a recent in person card class in San Antonio, TX.  The gems were in the box being passed around so everyone could make their own choice:)

Thanks for stopping by today.  If you are in the San Antonio area, be sure to check out my next in-person card class coming up in November.  Just click here.
