Do any of you tend to keep things that you bought a long time ago? I do. Anyone who knows me will testify to the fact that if anyone is looking for something, particularly Stampin' UP! products, will know that I am likely to still have the products I bought many years ago. That also include many stamp sets that I bought many years before I became a demonstrator too! In fact, I used to buy very old retired stamp sets from the different selling sites which obviously started my fascination with the companies products.
Yes, I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and along with Cary, have been so for almost 11 years now! WOW! That has gone so quickly. Needless to say my stash has increased dramatically since my first interest!
That said and it is throwback Thursday, my card today was made by a card that one of our ladies, Karen Franks made a few years ago when the Cookie Cutter Creatures came first out. It was using the Cookie Cutter punch with several Santa's falling down the edge of a card. I haven't used the Cookie Cutter Punch although I do still have it.
I have found a card similar but it's not the same as Karen's. You can see that one at the end of my post.
I used the Christmas tree punch with some of the lovely Plaid Tidings 6" by 6" papers, I embossed the white mats with the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing Folder, some narrow strips of Silver foil and a length of Metallic silver ribbon. Once again I have used the lovely Perfectly Plaid stamp set for the messages.
