This pretty paper with Holiday Baubles is only one of the great designs in the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper pack. The Stampin’ Up! All Is Bright Suite also includes the Merry Christmas To All stamp set with the Happy Holidays sentiment, and the coordinating Merry Christmas Dies.
We made this festive Happy Holidays card in our series of Christmas Card classes using several items from the All is Bright Suite as well as Gold Foil sheets and the Stitched Shapes dies. Here are the details:
When you have beautiful paper, the rest of your card doesn’t need a lot of embellishing. The shiny baubles on the All Is Bright Designer Series Paper are complemented with the embossed silver sentiment, die cut with the Stitched Shapes dies.
