MOJO204 and Bright Hopes

I'm back with another Holiday Mini Catalog Sneak Peek! This week's Mojo Monday sketch was just perfect for using the wreath in Bright Hopes Stamp Set, which will be available for purchase September 1. The set includes a wreath, snowflake, tree, flourish, and an inside and outside greeting. This card also features the new Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper, which I think you are just going to love. Colors include: Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler and So Saffron.  It is a specialty paper and it includes sweet holiday florals, such as those used today, as well as bold glittery patterns.

The wreath was heat embossed with Wild Wasabi Embossing Powder, which gives it a little dimension and shine. The background was stamped using Wild Wasabi Ink, stamped off once to give a more subtle image. I used the 1 1/4" Square Punch to make the little flagged ends on the strip of paper with the greeting, as well as the photo corner.

One snowflake stamped on the envelope is a hint of what is inside.

Here is the inside greeting, which I like very much and will probably be using on many other holiday cards this year. I just couldn't stop stamping snowflakes, so I put a few more stamped-off snowflakes inside, also.
