Today features a cute sparkly card that uses some brand new products featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog…

And these products are all amongst my favorites in that Mini…see that sparkly Silver Glimmer Paper, the cute little silver Jingle Bell and the fabulous Stocking Builder Punch?  They are all in there!

And this card is a great one to make if you are on a budget this Holiday season…read on for details plus info about this week’s Festive Blog Candy…

If you are on a budget, right now this is just the type of Holiday card that you can make a bunch of for a low cost – why?

  • you can get 8 of these card bases out of one sheet of 12×12 cardstock!
  • there is no Designer Series Paper – the focus of the card is that beautiful stocking
  • once you purchase the Stocking Builder Punch you have it for ever
  • with careful punch placement you get LOTS of stocking trimmings out of one sheet of Silver Glimmer Paper
  • you get 48 Jingle Bells for just $2.95!
  • the Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine costs just $2.95 for 25 yards!
  • you can use any sentiment stamp that you already have in your stamping stash

How’s that for a budget priced holiday card idea?!

I love how this card turned out – my card base is simply a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock sized 3″ x 6″…

To get 8 card bases out of one sheet of 12×12 cardstock simply slice that cardstock in half at 6″ – then place one of those pieces into your paper trimmer with the longest edge along the top, and cut at every 3″ – repeat for the other pieces and there you have 8 card bases!

I then added a mat of Old Olive & another of Whisper White and  I stamped my sentiment using a stamp from the set Holiday Happiness that you can find on pg 34 of the main Catalog…

That cute stocking? Punched out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using that new fabulous Stocking Builder Punch that you can find on pg 34 of the Holiday Mini – and that gorgeous sparkly trim?  Punched out of the GORGEOUS new Silver Glimmer Paper that you can find on pg 41 of that mini…I added the stocking trim using a Dimensional to make it pop off the card…

That new Silver Glimmer Paper is just stunning – that paper glitters so beautifully and the best bit is that no glitter falls off of it when you cut it – it’s gorgeous and you only need a little piece of it to turn your card into a WOW card.

For finishing touches I added a cute Jingle Bell that you can find on pg 30 of that Mini – and let me tell you they are BARGAIN priced – you get a pot of 48 of them for just $2.95!!!  I threaded it onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine and tied a bow…

You can get envelopes to fit this size of card – Mini Envelopes – that you can find on pg 182 of the main Catalog.  And you could also use this sized card for a gift tag for your holiday gifts – how cute would that be?

I have had camera woes this week – my camera is not working properly and thus I have been unable to take the photos I need (fortunately I made & photographed the card featured today last week)…

I am in search of a replacement this weekend and hope to have everything up and sorted by Monday – apologies for the delay and thank you for your patience!

Festive Friday goes Sparkly!

    Adorable!! These are all my fav things in the mini too. Well, that and the score board of course. I don’t have any yet, but am so in love with the stocking stuff, the glimmer paper, jingle bells, dazzling details etc. You did a great job on this card!

    What a great budget friendly card idea! I appreciate you keeping our pocketbooks in mind, since you know how addicted we are to SU products. I love the simple look of this card. It would be a perfect look to use for gift tags as well. I’m always a fan of the mini cards since so perfect to tuck in with gifts or a little hostess gift, or even to send someone that needs a little pick me up. Thanks for sharing.

    Love, love, love this card. It is simple enough to make for everyone in the office (40), but has a wow factor. Thanks for sharing.
