Countdown to Confetti - Jolly Holiday



Welcome to Day Two of Reverse Confetti's Countdown to the October release. Today we're featuring Jolly Holiday, the second of three new stamp sets we're releasing this month. Coordinating Jolly Holiday Confetti Cuts are also part of this release.

The October release will be available in the Reverse Confetti store at midnight on October 8.



Be sure to visit the Reverse Confetti blog for links to all the designers posting peeks today. Leave comments on each designer's blog for a chance to win a $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate. Also, head over to the Reverse Confetti Facebook page for another $15 giveaway.



Jolly Holiday is illustrated by Dawn Machell, and like all of her illustrations, these are just too cute for words! I'm especially smitten with this sweet little reindeer! I couldn't resist a red Rudolph nose for today's card! 

That green striped panel with the white circle and red stitching is one of the new limited edition Jolly Holiday Quick Card Panels. I accented the circle with a white Wreath die-cut. The ground is hand-cut into a slope. The clouds are die-cut from the Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts die set.


I trimmed the Quick Card Panel down just a bit and adhered it horizontally to a top-fold vertical card base of dark gray (I've got a major thing for grays lately!). Along the top of the card base, I stamped the little snowflake trio from this set in white ink and accented with teeny tiny 2mm clear rhinestones.

This is a great image and sentiment combo for Christmas gift thank-you cards!
