Happy Monday! We're still in Holiday Mode around here so everything is a little "off" but, in a good way! Today's card showcases another Occasions Mini Stamp Set – Perfect Pennants. I really like the shape of the greetings. They lend theselves well to being cut into banner shapes which will be sooooo easy with the new Banner Framelit Dies. You only have to wait 4 1/2 more days until the Occasions Mini is LIVE! But, if you want something you can do right now, just leave me a comment with your Favorite 2013 Card from my Blog. You can choose which you think will be my favorite too! Enter as many times as you'd like! I'll be choosing a bunch for BLOG CANDY on New Year's Day! You can also enter over on my Facebook Page.

I forced myself to keep it simple this morning! (Don't think visions of Distressing weren't dancing in my head the whole time!) The card was cut from a piece of Bermuda Bay Cardstock – 5 1/2 x 11" and scored and folded in half. I used the Circle Framelits Die and placed the cut line ABOVE the fold so that the fold would stay in tact. Normally, I would cut another full scalloped circle to adhere over the front so it would show a full circle but I figured I'd give this a try – keeping it simple, right? The next layer is Whisper White Cardstock cut with the next Circle Framelit Die and then passed through the Big Shot in the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. (That's a Sale-A-Bration freebie!). The strip of Bermuda Bay Cardstock was cut in the same size Circle Framelit and adhered to the card with Sticky Strip. The greeting was stamped in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Basic Black Cardstock. The banner is also from Perfect Pennants and was stamped in Bermuda Bay Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. Little Rhinestone Jewels and a 1/8" Basic Black ribbon are used for embellishments. All supplies are Stampin' Up! and can be found in my ONLINE STORE. Enjoy! 🙂
