I'm gearing up for my Founders Circle Retreat next month where time is set aside to swap with the other achievers.  I racked my brain over a design that would not disappoint my stamping friends and this is what I came up with.  

I used new Holiday Catalog product which unveils on September 1st and is filled with 51 pages of awesome products.  You won't be disappointed, I promise! 


I followed a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for the layout and simply changed the orientation of the sketch.  


I'm sure at least one of you is asking "why did she use red to represent the snow?".  I thought of using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper but that was so, ahhhh, predictable.  I thought the Red Glimmer Paper really made the card pop.  Plus, I love being a bit of a "design rebel".  ((grin))


 This new Edgelits Die is called "Sleigh Ride" and the set includes three different images.  Below is a picture taken from the display board during Convention last month.  There's a brand new Precision Base Plate for your Big Shot that will make cutting these intricate dies so much easier.  Trust me, I know. I made 110 of these cards!

 I used the Softly Falling Embossing Folder for the background and the gorgeous, new Winter Wonderland Speciality Designer Series Paper behind the sleigh.  I added a Silver Metal Button, tied with Whisper White Baker's Twine and a simple greeting from the new, Holiday Catalog stamp set "Happy Scenes".  Oh, and I almost forgot, the greeting was stamped in another new Holiday Catalog product – the Basic Black Archival Ink Pad!  You're going to love this new pad!


I'll be sharing more about the new Holiday Catalog products in my upcoming videos so be sure to subscribe to my blog and You Tube Channel.

Here's hoping that my fellow Founders Circle Achievers like their swap!
