Happy Holidays?

Yes, I know it's not even Halloween yet, but I decided to include a Christmas Card with this month's Stamp Camp projects. Just because. I mostly CASEd this card by Jan Tink, but of course I made a few changes, just to make it my own. Here's mine:

I used the same papers (Frostwood Lodge) from the Holiday Mini - I think it's brilliant how she got 4 different patterns in there with tiny strips of each. I would have been loading this thing up until it weighed 3 pounds. ;/ What I changed: I don't have that snowflake die* (yet), so I used the Northern Frost Sizzlit Decorative Strip die and cut just one from some of the Silver Glimmer paper. It's a really detailed die, and the paper is kindof thick, so I didn't bother punching out the little bits in the center - just around the outer edge:

Something else I did differently - I added a piece of the velvet ribbon to the bunch, and put a rhinestone brad around all of it and put that through the snowflake to hold it in place. Last month The Ladies had such a swell time with the brad-around-ribbon thing I thought I'd hit them up again with it. :)

That's project 4 of 4, so now it's time to cut the card stock and make up the kits. I have a few more things up my sleeve, and if I get my act together, I may even get to make them today. Wish me luck! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA: She used the snowflake punch, not a die, and yes I have it, but I just broke it, so we still won't be using it tomorrow. ;/
