Holiday Catalog Detailed Gate Thinlet Die Friendship Card



Welcome to the Anything but the Holidays blog hop! If you have been following along, you have arrived from Candice Fields’ blog. Wasn’t her project simply wonderful? It’s always tough to follow after a super talented person has blown everyone away with their gifts, so I am hoping my project is up to par! For my project, I wanted to do a friendship card with the Detailed Gate Thinlet die set in the Holiday Catalog

For this project, I used Silver Foil paper for the Detailed Gate Thinlet Dies in the Holiday Catalog and stamped the floral images and the sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set in the Annual Catalog. The flowers are stamped in Powder Pink, Blushing Bride and Soft Sky and Marina Mist.  I cut the flowers from the Lovely Laurel Thinlet Dies, which is available with the Lovely Friends stamp set in a bundle for 10% off. The card base is from Powder Pink, one of the newest In Colors, followed by Marina Mist and Whisper White cardstock.  The leaves are from the new Leaf Punch in the Holiday Catalog. I embellished with Basic Pearls and Powder Pink 3/8″ Shimmer Ribbon. I decided to tie the card closed with the ribbon.  I wanted something feminine and sparkly for my friendship card, and I hope you like it! Here is the inside of the card:

The Holiday Catalog was release last Friday, September 1 and you can download and view it by clicking here or my emailing me to request a copy be mailed to you. I would love to be your Demonstrator and answer any questions you may have about the products or help you host a Stampin’ Up party to explore all the wonderful new products in the Holiday Catalog.
