One of my favorite suites from the 2022 July-December 2022 Mini Catalog is the Lights Aglow Suite which includes the Christmas Lights Stamp Set and Twinkling Lights Dies and an assortment of coordinating papers and embellishments.  You'll want to see the entire suite on page 30-33 of the 2022 July-December Mini Catalog.  Here's a card I created for a recent card swap with other Demonstrators using many elements from the Lights Aglow Suite. I created it with Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake Cardstock, and used a sentiment from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, an additional stamp set that is part of the Lights Aglow Suite.  Yes!  This is a double-bundle suite (two stamp sets and two coordinating dies sets are part of this suite!).    I used the Double Oval punch from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog to create the image area for the sentiment, and I added some of the Gold Festive Pearls from the suite as accents. The final item I added from the suite was a bow of the Gold & Vanilla 3/8" Satin-edged Ribbon    This is a large coordinating suite giving you an enormous amount of fun products to use to spark your creativity. Don't settle for so-so Christmas cards.  You'll enjoy creating your Christmas cards that sparkle with so many items to work with.  And during the final month of Sale--A-Bration, you'll also earn several FREE selections from the July-August Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  Order the entire suite today!  Lights Aglow Suite | 159556 | $147.75 USD.

Today's card uses a base card Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  Then a layer of Crumb Cake, topped with a layer of one of the prints from Lights Aglow 6" X 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper, from the Lights Aglow Suite.  My image layer is a layer of Crumb Cake die cut using the tree from the Twinkling Lights Dies.  The Christmas Lights Stamp Set includes several other holiday images you'll find useful as you create your Holiday cards using this suite.

For the sentiment, I used the two ovals created by the Double Oval punch.  The scalloped edge oval is Cherry Cobbler Cardstock.  The sentiment layer is Basic White cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Brightest Glow Stamp Set, and the sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink.  The sentiment is mounted on Dimensionals.
