Early Bird Pricing and Holiday Card/Tag Ensemble

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today is the first day of the Create with Connie and Mary preview for the new 2012 Holiday Edition!

Head on over to Create with Connie and Mary to see who the first designer is and what fabulous project she has in store for you! Don't forget to leave her a comment for a chance to win BLOG CANDY!!!

While you are there, be sure to subscribe at the early bird price of only $24.95 - a $5 savings off the regular price! You will get 5 weeks of exclusive projects (including full color tutorials) created by very talented designers especially for this edition!

BUT BEFORE you head over, take a look at this little Holiday Tag Ensemble I created using just one piece of  8 1/2 x 11" piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and (2) Crumb Cake envelopes!

Here are the step-by-step instructions:

 Cut the envelope in half.

Glue along the edge of the envelope to seal.

 Cut the cardstock into (4) strips - 2 3/4" x 8 1/2"
Fold into 2 3/4 " x 4 1/4" cards/tags

Stamp using the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set.


Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, More Merry Messages
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Night of Navy & Eggplant Envy
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Holiday Ornament Framelit Dies

O.K., now you may go!

Happy Stampin!
