I love using Stampin' Up! Suites, like the Stampin' Up! Sweetest Christmas Suite.  I'm using the Designer Series Paper for a card again today, and I'm so pleased with the way the paper designs all work together so I don't have to worry about coordination.  Pick a couple of print from the Sweetest Christmas 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper, matte them in Basic White or Coordinating color, in this case Real Red, and add a few Candy Cane Die cuts and the card is essentially complete!.  Here's a little trick.  I wanted a banner for this card, but haven't received the Christmas Banner Bundle yet.  So I improvised.  I used the banner from the Hello Harvest Stamp Set along with a small piece of Masking Paper to mask off the sentiment that comes with that banner  Then I used the sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set to add the sentiment I wanted for this card.   This suite also includes  the small foliage on each side of the candy cans, and then I added a couple of Champaign Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add a little glimmer to the cards.   As I've mentioned before, this suite has so many uses -- from Christmas Cards to gift tags and Holiday treats, you'll definitely want to add it to your Holiday Season order.

Today's Christmas Card uses a base card of Thick Basic White Cardstock.  Then a layer of Real Red which matted a print from the Sweetest Christmas 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper.  Then I selected a red dotted print from the same Designer Series Paper pack and matted it in Basic White to use as my image layer.

I used the dies from the Candy Cane Dies set to die cut two of the printed Candy Canes from one of the the Sweetest Christmas 12" X 12" Designer Series Papers. I chose one in Garden Green and White striped    I used the Sweet Candy Cane Stamp Set to stamp and die cut additional greenery for my card.  I popped the greenery up on Dimentionals, but glued the candy canes flat to the card background.

Then I used the Hello Harvest stamp and Rustic Pumpkin Dies and created the banner.  I used a sentiment from the Sweet Candy Canes Stamp Set to add a sentiment in Garden Green.  I added a couple of Champaign Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and my card was finished!
