Favorite Holiday Mini Item

Happy Fall everyone!  WOW…I can’t believe it is already September and even better…the Holiday Mini is LIVE!  Since the mini is LIVE we thought it would be a great time for the design team to use their Favorite Holiday Mini Item.  Now that is tough one and I decided to go with my Favorite Holiday Mini Item right now!  That would have to be the CAT Punch!

Now before I get into any details I have to tell you…this is a BIG card!  The finished size is 4 1/4 x 8 1/2!  I REALLY wanted to do 3 cards and I really wanted to do 3 frames and well, this was the size the worked!  LOL!!!

Here’s the details…

  • Very Vanilla – 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Very Vanilla – 3 3/4 x 8, stamp greeting using Memento Black, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Spook Night dsp (stripe) – 1 x 8, add to card front
  • Using Oval Stitched Framelits and Layering Ovals Framelits cut out 3 frames – Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, and Tangerine Tango.  Add the Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango ones to card front (the two sides)
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/4 x 8, add to card front
  • Add Cajun Craze Frame using dimensionals
  • Punch out 2 cats from the black print dsp and 1 from Basic Black; add using dimensionals
  • Add some Black Rhinestones and Gold Metallic Shapes to finish off
