Today's post features the Holiday boot from the Bootiful Occasions stamp set.  Here is the card we made at the stamp camp:

Don't you love the new Sweater Trim?  The DSP is from Snow Festival pack in the Holiday Mini Catalog.  

To make this fun fold card, cut a piece of card stock 4-1/4" x 11", score at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2".  Fold the card in half and crease, then fold the front scored flap back and crease.  Open up, then put the 2-3/4" crease in the center of the 3-1/2" Circle Die, line up the top cutting plate with the crease, then run through the Big Shot.  This will cut 1/2 circle.  Emboss the remainder of the front flap with the Polka Dot EF, then close.  

A little 2-Way Glue Pen and some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter make this card pop!
This next card is one we made at a Shoebox Swap we attended the last night of convention.  I cased this and used it for my Christmas in July swap with a few minor changes.

I don't know who designed this card, but she used the Top Note Die for the background piece, then ran it through the Big Shot with the Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder.  She covered the flat inside of the EF with Early Espresso ink, then placed the Cherry Cobbler CS inside and embossed it.  This puts ink on the flat part of the design and leaves the flowers red. 

The Scallop Trim Corner Punch and Pearls Basic Jewels add some elegance to the card.  

Don't forget that September is the last  month to join the Big Shot Club!!
