Watercolor Christmas... Oh Joy

Here's a swap card I made recently featuring LOTS of new Holiday Catalog product!  It was so fun to go through my pre-order and decide which product I was going to use on this swap card - I especially love the black and white striped ribbon and the pretty cursive font on this stamp set!

Read on to learn all about it......

We start our card with a Cherry Cobbler Card base, then added a layer of Basic Black Card Stock, followed by a layer of the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) to our card.

This Merry Music DSP is a lightweight paper printed with traditional Christmas carols in English, French and German.  You actually receive 24 sheets of DSP, 4 each of 6 double-sided designs, so you get LOTS of paper in this pack of DSP!

Next, I stamped "Oh Joy" in Cherry Cobbler ink using the Watercolor Christmas Stamp Set.  This stamp set is also featured in the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  You can create handmade Christmas cards in minutes with this stamp set and super-cute, super-simple project kit!  And...  like I said earlier, I just love the cursive font in this stamp set!

I die-cut the Whisper White Oval and the Cherry Cobbler Scallop Oval behind it using the Layering Oval Framelits.  I am telling you...  I use my Layering Circles, Squares and Ovals Framelits ALL the time!  They are a must-have if you have a Big Shot!

Finally, I added that awesome black and white 7/8" Striped Ribbon behind the oval and sentiment and topped the "i" with a Rhinestone!  So fun!  The ribbon actually has wire on each side so it works great for making bows, too!  This is going to be a super-popular ribbon for both Halloween and Christmas this year, I think!
