Hello and thanks for visiting!
I've had the good fortune of participating in a Card Swap using products from the new Mini Catalogue. What's a card swap you ask? It's like a cookie exchange but with cards. A group of demonstrators from Canada have come together to create cards to share with each other. I'll be sharing their cards on my Stampin'Trix Facebook Business Page in the future.
My card features the Joyful life and Whimsical Trees stamp sets with the fabulous Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) This paper has shimmer throughout it, it's simple gorgeous!
I absolutely love the little hedgehog, she seems so excited to share her little gift of apples, I thought it was pure joy, so that's why I opted for the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set. There are so so many new beautiful products in the Mini Catalogue, I hope I've inspired to add something new to your Christmas card creations.

Assembly & Trix;
* Stamp the holly pattern on the Basic White CS layer stamping off once for a lighter image.
* Blend Blushing Bride ink onto the card layer where you'd like the snowflakes to float.
* Stamp the hedgehog using Black Memento ink and the 'Joy' sentiment using Polished Pink on Basic White CS. ***Trix, Align the images together using the Stamparatus™ before stamping to ensure the circle die will fit around it.
* Colour the hedgehog with blends.
* Die cut the hedgehog using a scalloped circle from the die collection.
* Adhere the strips of DSP using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue) staggering them just a bit off set for interest. ***Trix, to create dimension with the snowflakes adhere the first snowflake with glue and ensure that it tucks just under the strips of DSP.
* Adhere the ribbon to the back of the scalloped circle with Stampin' Seal, then attach the image to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
* Adhere the 2nd snowflake to the card. ***Trix, double up the dimensionals so the snowflake looks like its floating down onto the card
