This is the 3rd of 4 cards we made from the RG Presents Holiday event.  I love this die (For You available Aug. 1) and the cool Silver Mirror card stock and this past week I've seen some fun cards using this die.  I hope to get a couple more cards made using it.

We started by making circles of colors on the Whip Cream layer with a Dauber Dowel and 3 colors of inks, Candy Apple, Limeade Splash, and Summer Days.  The we flicked some Gold, Silver, and Cranberry Bliss Silks.  Now we did something different.  We added a squiggle of Journey Glaze near the top of the card and spread it thinly using a piece of card stock and sprinkled some Sparkle Dust!

Here you can see the sparkle!  Next we die cut the packages die from the Silver Mirror card stock and foam dotted it in place. We stamped the Merry from the Holiday Wishes (available Aug. 1) with Black Licorice ink on a small piece of Whip Cream and detailed cut it out and foam dotted it in place. We stamped the holly and bow from the Holiday Wishes stamp set using Fresh Forest and Candy Apple inks. I stamped the holly again with Candy Apple ink to get the red berries.  All was detail cut and foam dotted in place. We adhered a strip of Silver Sparkle Tape near the bottom of the card front, added a strip of Christmas Cheer Prints (available Aug. 1) then wrapped some Black Licorice Thread around the card front and tied. A few Fashion Gold pieces (available Aug. 1) were added after adhering the card front to a folded Black Licorice card base.

Did I get your interest going on our new products coming out next month?  I just got in some more cool stamp sets and papers and hope to get some time to play this week.  Tuesday I take my car back to the garage to replace all the hoses, belts, spark plugs & wires, and the rack and pinion.  It just started leaking and since we are heading to California early August to see family I wanted it fixed! And when we get back I'll be posting my for sale stamp sets because I didn't want to get people wanting them while I was gone. I have quite a few and some from other companies, too.
