Merry Little Christmas Suite makes beautiful cards

Old Olive sprigs add a holiday feel to a Black and White Christmas Card.  I'm loving the Designer Series Papers in the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Pack.  Today I chose two I haven't used previously to show you more items from this Christmas Suite from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  Today's card captures the shimmer of Christmas perfectly.  Also, a quick reminder that some of your favorite Designer Series Paper Packs are on sale this month.  Buy 3 and get 1 free.  
Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Papers from Stampin' Up!

The basecard is Thick Whisper White,  Then a layer of the Black & White Checks from the Merry Little Christmas Suite.  There is an oval cut from a star pattern from Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Papers pack and it is matted with a layer of Silver Foil.  The Oval is accented with three Silver Glimmer trees cut with the Card Front Builder Thinlits.  That same set of dies include the tiny deer, which was cut from Silver Foil.

Then I cut several pine sprigs from Old Olive using the Pretty Pines Thinlit and layered four of them under the sentiment.


The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Labels stamp set.  It is stamped in Basic Black Archival and punched using the Classic Label Punch.  I didn't order this punch when it first came out a while back, but once I got it, I find it is one of my most-used punches.  You can't beat Teeny Tiny Wishes as an all-around sentiment stamp set, and the Classic Label Punch is a perfect compliment for the enormous number of sentiments in this set. 

While I purchase clear mount stamps for most of my stamp purchases, I own Teeny Tiny Wishes in a wood- mounted set because of its heavy use, and due to the small size of many of the sentiments.  I'm a messy stamper with several projects on my work table at the same time. Small, clear-mount stamps have been known to be lost for days buried under project debris or clinging to stamp cases strewn among the clutter.       

In this photo I included one of the new mini pizza boxes decorated with pieces from the Year of Cheer suite, a silver foil snowflake, and matted in Basic Black.  I used the backside of one of the Foil Snowflakes and sponged it with Basic Black.  I think it works perfectly with the large number of Black and White Designer Series Papers we have this year.    

Take a look at some additional ideas for using the Merry Little Christmas suite from the Holiday Catalog.
