Holiday Mini Collection!

Many of you know that SU! demonstrators are given the opportunity to buy merchandise from mini catalogs a bit earlier than customers, right? Well, today my Holiday Mini Collection pre-order came! Lots of fun little goodies to tease you all with over the next three weeks until you can order (September 1).

Anyway, this little card took me a long time! Longer than any card has in a while. :) Mostly because I didn’t know what I wanted to do at first. I knew I wanted to watercolor the snowmen. It’s not too noticeable in the photo, but they are watercolored a slight blue color to show their dimension.

The three windows were punched out by first punching three squares, arranging them on the blue card stock, lightly penciling around them, and using the pencil marks as a guide.

Okay, and who loves the new Prints Designer Series Paper? And in Old Olive? Be still my heart! I can’t believe I didn’t order this paper a month ago with my initial new catalog order! It’s luscious!

And on to the card!
