Festive Friday #0014, Sneak Peek SU holiday catalog 2018

Did someone say Rhinestones?    I do love rhinestones!  I got my first pre order from the new Holiday catalog on tue, but due to hubby having had a heart attack this is my first play with all my new goodies.  (Yes, he is fine, he had 2 stents put in and is home).

I copied this from the catalog, I think it's the most gorgeous card ever.  I made a few changes, but not too much.  The one in the catalog is done in Gold and it's stunning! But I do like to do my own thing, so thought I'd at least try to make it a little different.   There are still a couple other differences, but you'll probably have to look hard to find them.

TIP:  Did you know you can emboss in any color you have ink for?  With the new stamp positioners, this is super easy.  Simply stamp first using your Versamark pad, then with your color pad, and put your clear embossing powder on.   Heat and it's done.   I did it here in Real red. 

The red rhinestones  are so pretty, and it fits in with the Festive Friday theme.
Check it out here.

I have been waiting a long time for a set like Dashing Deer to come out now that we have all the great dies, so it was a first get and a must have item.  And, I'm keeping it forever. LOL. 

Simple colors today, Real red and Whisper White, the new Swirls and Curls embossing folder, Versa mark ink pad, clear and red rhinestones and of course the Dashing Deer Bundle.

I hope I've given you some inspiration, well, me and the catalog.  Thanks for stopping by, and come on over and join in the challenge.

Absolutely stunning, Lynn! This is my favorite bundle from the Holiday Catalog, and like you, I will never part with it! The red rhinestones are the perfect accent to your red deer, but the show stopper is the rhinestone collar. WOW! Thank you for sharing at Festive Friday!

Eileen, The layer I think you are asking about is the Curls and Swirls embossed piece. It is 3 3/4"long x 3 7/8" wide. Everything else is just small pieces glued in. I cut 2 pieces of white for the top and bottom, embossed the design, added the sliver of glimmer paper onto that and glued each one in place separate. To get the glimmer paper to glue to the top piece, I used the Multi purpose glue, and it worked. It's hard to attach the glimmer side to things.
