Dress Up Christmas

Here is my first card from the Christmas Gift Giving Bundles, the Christmas Cocoa Designer Series Paper is fabulous: I have used four different sheets in this card. The Christmas decoration is punched using the Ornament Punch from one of the sheets that has a velvety finish to the paper it really is lovely.
I have used the Elegant Bouquet Embossing folder on the centre panel to add a bit more interest to the card, and also some of the lovely new pearls that SU has introduced.

Paper:  Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP, Real Red, Whisper White
Stamp:  Occasional Quotes
Accessories: Ribbon Embossing Folder and punch

The second card using this yummy paper I tried something different, because I wanted to get the whole design in from the DSP I used the circle punch and then in Whisper White punched about a 1/3 of the ornament punch and then used the scallop punch to give that lovely scallopy finish.  Then I couldn't help myself I just had to add some bling so lots of little pearls were then added.
