What's New at SU Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the What's New At SU November Blog Hop as we share our project ideas for Christmas. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world. I hope that our creations help inspire you to create your own holiday projects. 
 My card design today is based on a fun fold card design created by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Rachel Tessman. I thought it was perfect for the Christmastime is Here Suite and adapted the design to work with these amazing products. 
 For the card base, I chose Mossy Meadow cardstock and added Merry Merlot cardstock to create the matte layer. I added a layer of the pretty Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #152154) to the card front, cutting a strip off one end, approx. 3/8", to create a gap for the Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon (item #152156). I die cut a label from Whisper White cardstock using one of the Roses Dies (item #152144) and stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Rose stamp set (item #152431) and heat embossed it with Gold embossing powder to coordinate with the ribbon. (When you order the stamp set and dies as a bundle, you save 10% - Christmas Rose Bundle item #153944). 
 Using the detailed trellis style die from the Roses Dies, I used Gold Foil to create the die cut to go behind the sentiment label. I cut the Gold foil die cut in half and attached it to the back of the label with Snail Adhesive. For the inside of the card, I added a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and added a panel of Whisper White cardstock for the inside sentiment and a place to write a message. To decorate the side panel, I added three of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (item #152155) for a touch of bling. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my Christmas card design will help to inspire you with your own projects for Christmas using this beautiful suite. If you live in the U.S. and do not already have a demonstrator, please contact me and I would be happy to help you.
