My Contempo Christmas Swap Card

This is a card I created last month for a card swap group… featuring the Contempo Christmas Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up, I also added a cute little flower from the Birds ‘ N Blooms Sizzix Die Set.  I love the textured elements provided by the pretty polka dots and lattice embossing folders… and of course who can’t resist Basic Pearl Jewels and Dazzling diamonds??

P8020004

The left edge of the sentiment rectangle was pierced using a mat pack and paper piercing tool.. to add just a little “something” extra.  The Ornament punch is an exact fit for the ornament image from the Contempo Christmas Stamp Set too… made this card quick and easy to create.
