A Big Shot Christmas

Well, after a small 'Christmas hiatus', it's back to the holidays and it's a Big Shot Christmas for me and this Freshly Made Sketch. It's a new challenge I've been wanting to do and finally got around to today :) What I love about this challenge is that the sketches are fresh and clean but my cards don't have to be. It's not about simplicity and the challenge encourages lots of bling and other embellishments. But the cards have to remain clean - which I think my style fits to a tee.

I also wanted to show you all how to make a card with the Big Shot only! Dies, embossing folders, and *gasp* NO STAMPS! Lol! I used the Stripes Embossing Folder as well as the Stocking Accents Originals Die (found in the Holiday Mini). I did use the Scalloped Edge Punch as well as the Real Red 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon. But no stamps ;)

I consider the Big Shot a vital part of my business which is why I'm so pleased that during the month of October, anyone who joins the Stampin' Up! family get a FREE Big Shot!
