Supplies (all from Stampin Up!): Cardstock - Cherry Cobbler (base), Very Vanilla and Lucky Limeade. DSP - Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack (NEW and available in the Holiday mini catalog). Sentiment and inside stamping is all from a stamp set called First Christmas (Holiday mini). I colored the sentiment stamp with my SU markers in Cherry Cobbler and Lucky Limeade before stampin it on the Very Vanilla then I used my Sizzix Big Shot and the Apothecary Accents Framelit to cut the shape around the sentiment (I cut a second piece in Lucky Limeade and layered behind the first one). That gorgeous texture at the top of the card base is made with one of the Delicate Designs embossing folders. The ribbon is the 1/8" tafetta ribbon in Old Olive.
