I've been going through my patterned paper lately and cleaning out my stash and came across this sheet from Stampin' Up! that's retired now (I can't even remember the name of the collection offhand - I really liked it tho! The same patterns but a different color scheme is still available in the "Wintergreen" patterned paper pack).
EDITED TO ADD: This paper is from the Holiday Thyme paper pack (thanks ladies for reminding me!) and while it is retired in Canada and the US I guess it was just released in Australia so for all my Aussie readers this is all current for you!! *grin*
It wasn't a full sheet but I managed to get 7 4x4" squares out of it and proceeded to make 7 Christmas cards.
I pulled out several different SU! sets for them: Peaceful Wishes, Lovely as a Tree, Many Merry Messages, Perfect Ending (retired) and Season's Greetings (retired).
Then, to make the process even quicker - I stuck to a basic color combo for all the cards: Old Olive, Bravo Burgandy, Cranberry Crisp (retired) and Naturals Vanilla card stock. I used the same colors for the ink with a little Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke thrown in here and there.
For accessories I used Stitched Cranberry Crisp Grosgrain (retired), Wide Old Olive and Bravo Burgandy Grosgrains and Always Artichoke Grosgrains, the Ticket Corner and 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch (to make the scalloped edges) and Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
Y'all can get a better look at these cards by going to my gallery of Stampin' Up! cards here <-----click! I uploaded other shots of these cards just a couple at a time to get a closer view.
