Positive Inkers Global Design Team - August 2021

Hello there and Happy August to you! I’m thrilled to be blog hopping today with the Positive Inkers Global Design TeamWe are a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the globe who are super-excited to share our love of creativity. I’m so happy you stopped by today! 

If this is the fist time you are visiting, please let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Marie Hile and I live in San Antonio, Texas. Welcome! 
Our theme this month is: August - December 2021 Stampin Up!® Mini Catalog Products. As soon as I saw the new Mini Catalog, one suite of products immediately went on my “must have” list. The Whimsical Trees stamp set and coordinating Christmas Trees Dies are so much fun! This suite also shares a non-traditional color combo for holiday cards which I’m always a huge fan of. 
Color Combo:
*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my cards below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
The Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper is probably one of my favorite packs of paper EVER! Not only does it coordinate beautifully with the suite, but the iridescent and rose gold foil accents just add the perfect detail. Some of the patterns coordinate with the dies in the suite and then there is this fabulous gift box pattern that is super easy to cut out to create fun detail on your cards. 

I actually had so much fun making this card, I made over 30 of them for swap cards, some for my team and some for a demonstrator swap. You can cut a LOT of presents out of that DSP, that’s for sure! I decided to use some Rose Gold Glimmer Paper (Annual Catalog) for the ornaments, because you can never have too much sparkle on a holiday card! I added some “ground” under my scene with a little strip of the new Blushing Bride Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon. I love the texture it adds without being too bulky. 
Card Measurements and Details: 
  • Mint Macaron Card Base: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”, scored at 4-1/4” 
  • Blushing Bride Cardstock: 4” x 5-1/4”

Here is a look inside the card. I added a coordinating sentiment and a little pink tree to keep the festive fun going from the front of the card.
