I have, for a few months, been wanting to recreate this stunning card by Yvette Ashe - it is one of my all-time favourites, using Stampin' Up!'s Ornament Keepsakes stamps.  Until now, though, I haven't had the Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Well .... I now have the paper, and I just had half an hour free, so I set to work.  I have added a couple of different touches (ribbon treatments, glimmer paper behind the buttons, and Early Espresso ink on the sentiment), but hope I've done Yvette's design justice.  I don't normally blog cards that I have CASEd, but this one has to be an exception because I just LOVE it!!!

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages
Card: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer Paper
DSP: Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper
Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo, Crumb Cake and Early Espresso stampin' pads
Other: Holiday Ornaments framelits dies, Victoria crochet trim, Pool Party seam binding, Linen Thread, Very Vanilla 1/8" taffeta ribbon, Vintage faceted buttons, glue dots, Itty Bitty shapes 3/8" circle punch, sponge daubers


  1. Gorgeous Christine!!

  2. Oh, I love it too! So glad you shared! Love the colour combo.

  3. This is lovely, Christine. Did you cut the back out of the glimmer paper like I do??? LOL. I took the Natural Composition paper off my last order and now seeing your card, I'm regretting that move.

  4. This is stunning Christine! Love the colour of the ornaments. Very well done!

  5. Love the colour combo and all the details, Christine. Looking forward to seeing that DSP IRL.
