Stampin up big shot holiday stocking accents bigz die card punch
Let's kick off the week with a fresh Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO213 by Julee Tilman.

I choose a 4 x 4 square card and incorporated the colorful, "retro" Christmas tree bulbs created with the Stocking Accents Originals Die (Holiday Mini Catalog, 124099).   I used the same adorable die (the Christmas tree design) on this previous project with the wine bottle tags!

  • Stampin up holiday contempo christmas card idea oval punchIf you are a texture maven like me, you'll love the effect the Snow Burst embossing folder added to the tree bulbs and large circle.
  • I recropped the bulbs with just a touch of Silver Glimmer Paper at the top for added sparkle.
  • Itty bitty bits of Mini Glue dots keep the silver cord (retired) in place.  
  • What?  No envelopes for a 4 x 4 card?  Check out my Easiest Ever Envelope Video to see how you can customize your own in a snap using the Stampin' Up! Simply Scored Scoring Tool and Designer Series Paper.
