Pennant Christmas Tree

When my worst workshop fear came true (I forgot the stamp set!), I had to think quickly to come up with a substitute.  Instead of stamping the trees and punching them out, we ran the Garden Green cardstock through the Big Shot with the Snowburst embossing folder, then punched with the Pennant Builder Punch.  We next layered the green onto a punched Whisper White scalloped triangle.  Whew, saved by the Big Shot!

Glimmer paper circles Christmas tree

Today's card uses the color combination of Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, and the silver and red glimmer papers.  The jewels on the "merry" and the heart add additional sparkle.  I used some dimensionals to give additional depth to some of the circles, which were all punched using SU!'s circle punches.  I freehand cut the star for the top.  The sentiments come from the stamp sets Heard from the Heart and Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Thank you to SU! demonstrator Judy May for the inspiration.

Glittering snowflakes

This card is so beautiful in real life.  The picture just doesn't do it justice.  The snowflakes punched from the glimmer paper sparkle and shimmer.  A big THANK YOU to SU! demonstrator Sandy Shippee for inspiring this card!
