PP104, Joyous Celebrations and a Sneak Peek

Greetings, Stampers, and a Happy Monday to you! I hope you all had a nice weekend. I spent part of mine happily playing with some new goodies that arrived in my Holiday Catalog pre-order, which is one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. There are several new products featured in today's card. The first, which you can't miss, is the gorgeous new embossing folder, called Holiday Frame. Do you love it as much as I do?! The greeting and little bow is from a new stamp set called Joyous Celebrations, which is a set of nine stamps. The Designer Series Paper is from a stack called Festival of Prints. It is a 48 sheet stack, 4 1/2" x 6 1/2", with 12 different patterns, and it's only $6.95. Fun and value!

The inspiration for today's project (aside from playing with new stuff) is this week's Paper Players Challenge, which is to make words the focal point of a clean and simple card. This new stamp set served that purpose perfectly!

The greeting was stamped and then punched with a Large Oval Punch. The layer behind it was cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelit. I cut the little bow out by hand (not as hard as it looks). Then, I used a square punch to cut the  flag ends of the DSP strip. The entire focal piece was attached with Dimensionals.
