Today’s card features a sneak peek of two new products from the 2018 Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog: Peaceful Noel stamp set and Merry Christmas Thinlits Dies. Both of these products are available in a bundle with other products, but I liked them together for this card. I actually started by stamping the wreath in the corner. Then I decided I liked this large die cut sentiment with it. I love how easy it is to mix and match Stampin’ Up! products!

The sentiment is die cut from gold Glimmer Paper. I like the look of glitter, but I do not like the mess it can make. That’s why I have rarely used Glimmer Paper in the past. But beginning in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, the Glimmer Paper is new and improved. I was told by someone at Stampin’ Up! that the glitter is now milled into the paper, instead of being glued on top of it. There absolutely is no loss of glittery shine – it looks the same. The available colors may be the same as before, but the paper doesn’t shed any glitter now. I’ve cut it with my trimmer and with paper snips, and I’ve die cut it, and I have yet to find a single piece of loose glitter. Not one! You can rub your finger over it and nothing comes off.  I just can’t tell you how excited I am about this mess free Glimmer Paper. I mean, I’m talking zero glitter mess! Woohoo!

And did I mention there are 3 new colors of Glimmer Paper in the 2018 Holiday Catalog? Copper, Merry Merlot, and Tranquil Tide, which go with the new Joyous Noel Suite.

Stamped with the Peaceful Noel stamp set:

  • wreath in Crumb Cake and Real Red inks onto the Whisper White CS layer using a Stamparatus
  • see instructions on stamping a wreath with the Stamparatus in my post here
  • to stamp the wreath in the corner, start with a piece of paper larger than you need
  • then move the same corner of that piece of paper around to the 8 different points of the template
  • then cut the paper down to the desired size

Die cut using the Merry Christmas Thinlits:

  • sentiment from gold Glimmer Paper

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • sentiment glued onto the Whisper White CS layer
