It's a Wonderland

Hello and welcome! Today I am showing you some cards I made from one of my favorite sets in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. Sadly, this set is retiring at the end of the month, but I love the trees so much in this set, that I may just have to keep it for awhile.  It's called Wonderland and it even has a matching set of designer paper called Winter Wonderland. Here's what I made.
 I used a large Silver Doily for the background of the focal point. The trees were stamped on white card stock using Black Archival ink. The Winter Wonderland dsp is layered with our Silver Foil card stock, and finished off with some Dazzling Details in Silver, and some silver thread and Metallic Pearls.
 This was my first attempt. I tried using Archival Black ink directly onto the dsp, but the trees came out a little light. But then I looked at it and thought "actually, it looks like the trees have a little bit of snow on them". So I went with it and used this scrap to make this card.
Here I used the large Gold Doily and masked off the edges with post it notes.  I wanted it to appear like the trees were popping out of the doily. I think it worked out well.  Again, using the Winter Wonderland dsp, and a layer of black card stock, this was a quick card to make.  However, you can never have too much glitter. So out came my Fine Tip Glue pen and a sprinkle of gold glitter to the rescue.
I hope you like my cards today.  As the holiday catalog retires, we demonstrators have already seen the new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.  In fact, my pre-order should arrive today. Trust me when I say...you will LOVE these new catalogs! So many choices of great new stamp sets, beautiful paper, and lots and lots of bundles.  Bundles are 2 products sold as a set, and you save 15% if you buy them together.  If you don't already have a demonstrator, please email me or call me and I will be sure to mail your catalogs to you. 
Until then, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and a safe, healthy and Happy New Year!
Blessings to you all!
