Scentsational Seasons Christmas Cards

I designed these cards for a class a friend of mine are teaching at our local library.  I used Stampin' Up!'s new Scentsational Seasons Stamp Set along with the Holiday Collection Framelit Dies, Fancy Fan Folder and the Mitten Builder Punch.

The base of all of these cards are Very Vanilla Card Stock.  The other colors used are:  Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, and Gumball Green. I used Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake and Gumball Green inks.

I stamped the images on Very Vanilla card stock and cut them out by running them through the Big Shot using the Holiday Collection Framelit Dies.

2nd Layer - Cherry Cobbler (Fancy Fan Folder) 4" x 5 1/4"
Very Vanilla Banner - 1/2" x 4" (sponge edges with Cherry Cobbler); Cherry Cobbler - 3"
Designer Paper - 2 1/2" square; Cherry Cobbler - 1 1/2" x 2 1/4"; Very Vanilla 1 1/4" x 2"(sponge edges with Cherry Cobbler)
Candy Cane is stamped in Cherry Cobbler
