Valerie favor box xmas

PATTY BENNETT'S PROJECT #1 – ABOVE:  I LOVE the Fancy Favor Die box (item 115965, pg 200) and decided to start making some Christmas samples.. here is a Fancy Favor Die box (made with the Big Shot) and our fun retro looking HOLIDAY LOUNGE Designer Paper (item 115676 on pg 162).  I punched a circle with the 1-3/4" circle punch and added a square of dotted window sheet behind it. (Dotted window sheets from the "Clearly Thanks" package, item 115122, pg 169).

Valerie cottage wall card

PATTY BENNETT'S PROJECT #2 – ABOVE & BELOW: this is a card we made at Valerie's Stampin' Up! workshop last weekend… the cardstock is Rich Razzleberry, the designer paper is Cottage Wall (item 115671, pg 160) and it's embellished with a strip of Old Olive that has been textured with the Finial Press Embossing Folder (item 115963, pg 195) and the Big Shot.  The scallop embellishment is a piece I cut with the Scallop #2 die/Big Shot and our On Board Chipboard sheets, then covered with Rich Razzleberry DSP and a stamped center and added a Jumbo Brad.
