  • Just breaking into the stamping and card making craze?  Easy Events stamp set is a smart basic.  Clean, simple and versatile. See all images at the end of this post!
  • Love it!  Glimmer Paper does the work of loose glitter without the glue or mess.  You can even punch out or die-cut your favorite shapes.
  • Stampin’ Up! Builder Punches have many usable bits and pieces.  The berries on the “merry christmas” branch are from the Cupcake Builder Punch.

    I love the bow Mary! Super fun idea! Thanks for the short lesson featuring this die. I wasn’t really sure what you can do with it since I am not too kenn on using the Big Shot, I have this fear of breaking it – I guess. Anyway, fun card. I wonder if more colors are in store for us?

    Very cool! Do the dies work with Cuttlebug?

  5. Wow what a great idea and easy to boot. Why didn’t I think of this before I made all my Christmas cards for this year? I can always work on Christmas 2012 cards early… right ? lol. Hugs, Becky

  6. Mary, what a fun, glittery card! Awesome job!


  7. I love the card. Such a fun way to send christmas greetings.

    I think I don’t make square cards because I don’t have the envelopes. Are there SU envelopes available for square cards?

  8. Pure glimmery gorgeousness, Mary!
