We're in early October, and the Holidays are approaching faster than you can imagine.  I've learned to pace myself and work on Christmas Cards throughout the Fall rather than stressing as the mailing deadline for Christmas Cards approaches.  Today I'm using part of the Joy of Christmas Suite.  This is a large suite with two different stamp and die bundles and two different coordinating Designer Series Paper Packs.  I'm using the Joy of Noel Stamp Set and Dies Bundle from this suite, and I'm pairing it with one of the beautiful prints from the Winter Meadow 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper from the Winter Meadow Suite, another stunning Suite.  My color theme for today's card is Moody Mauve, Garden Green and Basic White.  Moody Mauve matched the berries in this designer series paper.  I used the Joy of Noel Dies to die cut the NOEL letters, which I placed on a Basic White Circle die cut using the Stylish Shape Dies.  I bordered the circle with Garden Green Pine Needles die cuts. I added some holly berry die cuts, a bow of Moody Mauve, and several white Faceted Gems from the Faceted Gems Trio Pack from the Winter Meadows Suite.  This is a great example of how well Stampin' Up! products work across the product line.  By combining products from two different suites, I've created a wonderful holiday card with a joyous message.

    The basecard for this card is Moody Mauve Cardstock.  Then I added a layer of Basic White as a Matte around the Winter Meadow 12" X 12" Designer Series Paper with Moody Mauve berries.

    Next, I die a circle of Basic White Cardstock using the Stylish Shape Dies.  I stamped the letter for Noel in Moody Mauve ink and use the Joy Of Noel Dies to Die cut the letters.  Tip:  I save the piece of Basic White I had cut the letters from, and used it to position the letter on the Basic White circle, which made positioning a snap.  From Garden Green Cardstock, I die cut 4 pine needles using one of the dies form Joy of Noel Dies, and I positioned them around the outside of the Noel Circle.  I used Moody Mauve ink to stamp two berry stems, die cut them using Joy of Noel Dies, and added them to the front of the Noel Circle.  I added Dimensionals to the back of the Noel circle and added it to my card front.

    To finish my cards, I created a bow out of Moody Mauve Textured Ribbon and used glue dots to add it to the top of my circle.  Tip:  To ensure that the ribbon remains on the card, I typical used several Glue Dots, and then heat them with my Heat Gun until they begin to melt, and then attach the bow to the card.    Finally, I added a few White Faceted Gems from the Faceted Gem Trio Pack.  They remind me of tiny snowballs.
