Stampin' Up! Winter Memories

Christmas can conjure specific memories for all of us, can't it? For me it means either pines or palms (depending on if we were at home or with family in Miami) and it definitely means lots of good Cuban food. Forget gaily covered boxes, this girl needs garlicy slow-roasted pork and black beans for it to be official. Unfortunately, Stampin' Up! doesn't have stamps for this yet but I'll keep working on them.

For a few of my ladies sleds, cardinals and skates bring fond memories. My friend Debby immediately fell in love with our Winter Memories stamp set and requested that we create a card with it at her Club Meeting. This was our second make & take for the morning and it definitely went over well. Thanks to Debby for being such a great hostess and for allowing us to use her Winter Memories stamp set!


It's hard to pick, but probably my favorite detail on this card is the woodgrain layer. It's simply a layer of our Core-dinations card stock in Early Espresso run through the Big Shot in a Woodgrain embossing folder. We lightly sanded the paper so that the lighter core of the paper would show the detailing of the design. Normally, all of our card stock is colored all the way through and even the center of the paper is the same exact color as the outside. In this case, the outside is Early Espresso, but the interior is closer to Crumb Cake. Different colors, but still with our wonderful quality.

Another great detail about this paper? It's only $6.95  for 12 (12"x12") sheets!
