Countdown to Confetti - Day 2


Hello there!  Welcome to the countdown to Confetti Day #2 with Reverse Confetti!  All of the products that we will be showcasing over the next few days will be available on the Reverse Confetti website and at your favorite retailers on November 8th!  If you order from the Reverse Confetti store, this month we are offering a free gift with $60 purchase!  Snowy Sentiments pairs perfectly with all of your winter favorites!

Today, we are showcasing the new Retro Holiday stamp set and coordinating Retro Holiday Confetti Cuts dies.  To create my first card, I started off by putting a piece of Darling  Dots patterned paper to an A2 card base  On top of that, I layered the new Open Drop Cover Panel cut from white cardstock.  Then, I stamped and gold heat embossed the cluster of stars from the Retro Holiday stamp set two times on white cardstock.  I pulled out the previously released Joys of the Season stamp set, and stamped and diecut the candy cane from the set with the coordinating Joys of the Season Confetti Cuts dies.

I adhered the stars to the right size of the panel with a glue pen, and popped the candy cane up with foam tape.  Then, I heat embossed a sentiment from the Retro Holiday on a strip of cardstock, which I rounded with a corner rounder.  To finish off my card, I added a scattering of gold sequins and and some glittery stickles to the candy cane.

To create my second card, I started off with a piece of white cardstock cut to  4" x 5.25".  I splattered it with gold metallic watercolor.  Then, I heat embossed the open star cluster from Retro Holiday in gold embossing powder and stamped some of the smaller whimsical stars in red ink and diecut with the Retro Holiday Confetti Cuts dies.  For the focal point, I diecut the new Ornament Confetti Cuts die from gold metallic cardstock and more of the Darling Dots patterned paper.  I pieced them together and glued everything flat with a glue pen.

For the sentiment, I diecut the new Layered Joy Confetti Cuts die from white and red cardstock.  I layered the red text layer on the white shadow and centered that on the ornament.  Before popping the panel up on an A2 card base, I added a strip of red and white patterned paper from the Hello Holidays paper pad.

I especially like the first one. The shape in the background looks great with the added details of the candy cane and holly. I LOVE holly...and how you colored the leaves and berries!
