Perfectly Masculine

Here's a great way to use the alternate side of the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack that is featured in the Holiday Catalog. I love how Stampin' Up! creates our holiday designer paper with one side for the holiday and the other side with a non-holiday theme so your investment can be used all year long.  Here are few tips to creating this card.  1) The panel to the far left is not designer paper, but a strip of cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot with the Chevron embossing folder.  2) The Merry Minis stamp set, also featured in the Holiday Catalog, has a star image that can be used all year long. 3) I used the Merry Minis punch pack to punch out the star.  This punch pack includes three images; star, ornament and Christmas tree.  4) I know I've shared my ribbon tip over and over again but it's really a great shortcut.  I cut two pieces of ribbon; one at 6" and another at 4". Adhere the raw ends of the 6" piece behind the vanilla layer of cardstock. Tie the 4" piece under that strip of ribbon and make a knot. This tip saves you nearly 1/2 of the ribbon you would need if you were to go all the way around the inside of the card.
