Shiny Noel
by Michele K. Henderson


Happy Holidays! Our amazing double holiday blog blitz is sparkling along, and today, I am sharing a beautiful, easy breezy card with a traditional holiday feel. Our Holiday Blog Blitz began September 19, and just like our Fall/Halloween Blog Blitz, we are offering amazing blog candy and giveaways every day! All you need to do is leave a comment and you could win the die or stamp set featured that day! That's MY idea of a Holiday treat!


I love all the colors of the winter holidays, but this Festive Noel die has a traditional holiday vibe for me, so I decided to use traditional holiday colors, red and green foil paper! I cut the Festive Noel twice, once in red and once in silver. I then cut the Holly Vine Sidekick Frame out of green foil, then carefully pieced everything together against a light silvery white glitter background. I must have tried a dozen different background papers until I found the one that was just right for this project. This color combination works for me, and all that shiny foil reminds me of vintage holiday ornaments and decorations. The Festive Noel fits perfectly in the frame of the Holly Vine.

Now it's your chance to win this amazing Festive Noel die to add to your holiday collection. Simply leave a comment on THIS post before midnight on October 2, and you might be selected to receive a special gift from your Poppystamps Secret Santa! Winners will be announced October 4th.
