Last thurs dec - thanks two cool

My "Last Thursdays" class was my last chance to focus on a couple more Holiday Catalog items that I wanted to use before they were gone on January 2, 2013.  I had great plans to do Christmas cards with the awesome Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Pack, but never got it done.  Thankfully, the patterns are versatile enough to use anytime!

This card design is a perfect way to really highlight how well the colors and patterns of these cute 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" papers flow together.  You get 48 sheets on a pad: 4 each of 12 double-sided designs for LOTS of possibilities!

CASEd from April Jackson at Stampin' With April.

The card base is Very Vanilla with a Cherry Cobbler 5-1/4" x 4" layer.  I cut the plaid background paper at 5-1/8" x 3-7/8".

The Island Indigo strip is 1" x 5-1/8", the Early Espresso strip is 1" x
3-3/4", and the Cherry Cobbler strip is 1-1/2" x 3-1/2".  Fish-tail the
banners with the corner of a 1" Square Punch.

I used all the same paper measurements for banners on this card, just layered them all on a different background.

I stamped the lovely Friendship Preserves image in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.  I stamped it a second time in Cherry Cobbler and hand cut the "a bunch" banner to paper-piece on top of the image. The "Thanks" was colored with Island Indigo ink applied with a Blender Pen, then sparkled with Dazzling Diamonds adhered with a 2-Way Glue Pen. 

The image is die-cut with the Window Frame Framelits, then layered on another Island Indigo die-cut that's been pierced with the help of the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack templates.  I love, love, LOVE the look of that framelit shape!
