Two for One Christmas Cards

I've been making some Christmas cards with the new stamps from the Stampin Up Fall/Winter catalog. I've also been playing with the new Top Note die for the new Big Shot that SU will be selling in their Holiday mini catalog (available October 1). SU has done a WONDERFUL job this year with their catalog and promotions and new partnerships! I'm so impressed!

I cut the Top Note shape from the new Holiday Treasures designer paper, and folded it in half. The sentiment is inside the fold as you can see in the pictures below. The snowflakes are from the Snow Swirled stamp set (on sale this month!)

For this card below, I used the leftover Holiday Treasures paper to make a frame for this winter scene. Why waste such pretty paper?? The tree image is from A Wish for Peace, and the sentiment is from Snow Swirled. I colored in the snow with a white pencil, then dabbed over those white areas with the 2 way glue and poured Dazzling Diamonds glitter on top.

The colors on both cards are: Ruby Red, Old Olive, and Chocolate Chip. Isn't that a beautiful color combination for Christmas? :-)
