Today is the first day that our customers get to view the new Mini Holiday with Heart Gift Guide. There are some fabulous new items that are only availble until December 31/13.
There is an awesome promotion that CTMH is offering that runs from October 15/13 until December 31/13. When you have an order reach $100, you qualify for a FREE Star item(items that are marked with a star in the Gift Guide). So if you spend $200 you will receive 2 FREE items.
For my project I decided to make a card using the new paper packet found in the gift guide, Sparkle & Shine (X7176B). I started with a piece of Slate CS for my mat, and then added a piece of the Ruby Pattern paper.
Then using the Santa Claus Stamp Set (C1567) I stamped this cute Santa Claus on White Daisy Cardstock in Black Ink and then In Ruby Ink. I then cut out all of Santa's suit and paper pieced it onto the Santa stamped in Black. Then using my Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel(Z1313) I added that to Santa's suit. After I finished Santa, I used 3D foam tape to pop that and the sentiment, which is stamped in Slate Ink and matted on Juniper Cardstock. The second patterned paper you see, is one I made myself using the border stamp found in this set. I stamped it in Slate, Juniper and Ruby Ink, then matted it on Juniper Cardstock.
So, if you would like to get your crafty hands on this paper and stamp set, and your own copy of the Mini Holiday Gift Guide you can contact me, if you can't wait to get your own copy of the gift guide, you can find it here.
