This is was a fun ornament card I made after learning how to make it from Michelle Zindorf. It uses the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies which retire soon. It also uses the Embellished Ornaments Thinlets Die that is not retiring yet. I used the Hardwood Background Stamp. The colors are Island Indigo, Old Olive, Whisper White cardstock. I love how it turned out.

Thanks Dianne for your swap. I really liked it.
Here is Dianne's card:
This is the other project we made at my workshop on Sunday. The idea came from a video I saw of Connie Stewart's, but I used the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum for the front of my Gift Card Envelope. I loved her Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and knew I had to make one. I also used it for my club workshop on Sunday. I used several punches to create Rudolph as you can see in the chart I made below..

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! We did have some snow fall today but not enough to accumulate or even to make a snowman. So I made a snowman card using the Snow Place stamp set. The base of card is Whisper White layered with Lost Lagoon. I stamped the snowflakes with Craft White. I stamped the snowman with Memento Black ink and cut him out with the coordinating Snow Friends Framelits. The snow and trees in background are cut from the Sleigh Ride Edgelits (soon to retire). I wasn't crazy about the Sleigh Ride Edgelits when I first saw them, but have seen so many beautiful cards made with them. It will be sad to see them go. I stamped "Let it Snow!" on Whisper White and I used the Hexagon punch on the one end to create a banner.

This is a card I made with Night of Navy and Soft Sky cardstock.
I ran the Soft Sky through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling TIEF.
The "Christmas Cheer" is from Cheer All Year stamp set that will soon retire.
Santa and his reindeer are also soon to retire from the set Cozy Christmas set.
I used the new Curvy Corner Trio Punch that will not retire and will still be available in the new Occasions Catalog that comes out January 5. The punch has a ribbon slide which I punched at both ends of my banner to slide the Night of Navy 1/2" seam binding through. The punch also has two corner shapes.
