Twelve Weeks of Christmas - Week 11

I did get my 11th e-mail off last week, but haven't updated my blog until now. I'll be back soon with the 12th week of Christmas post (I need to get my e-mail off first). I also received my pre-order for the Occasions Mini Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration flyer and I've put my new Clear Mount stamps together (very excited about this option) but haven't had much time to play yet... hopefully I'll have something new to share soon! Anyway, here's the card for Week 11:

I love the Ornament Punch from the Holiday Mini... here's hoping it will make it into the next catalogue! The punch and the Four the Holidays stamp set as well as the Christmas Cocoa paper are only available for sure until January 4th, so if you want them and haven't got them yet, make sure you order by then...


1. Use the Ornament Punch to punch the Kraft card base (4 1/4" x 11"). Temporarily adhere the Whisper White cardstock (3" x 5 1/2") to the Kraft Card base. Line up the Ornament Punch over the ornament hole punched in the card base, and then punch again (going through the Whisper White).
2. Use the Ornament Punch to punch flocked paper from Christmas Cocoa damask paper. Put Stampin' Dimensionals on the back and adhere to the inside of the card (with the card closed, line up the Christmas Cocoa ornament in the hole).
3. Carefully peel Whisper White cardstock off card front. Stamp with ornaments from Tree Trimmings stamp set with Real Red and Old Olive ink.
4. Stamp ornament strings onto Whisper White cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink.
5. Adhere Whisper White cardstock onto card front.
6. Use the Scallop Edge punch to punch one side of the Old Olive cardstock (2" x 5 1/2"). Stamp sentiment from Four the Holidays onto Old Olive cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink.
7. Adhere Old Olive cardstock over string ends on card front.
