Prize #5 - a set of Stampin' Up! Mini Dimensionals. Used in today's project -
Looking for a quick and bright card  you can still make and get out for the holidays?  Well look no further - I just LOVE this adorable fun fold card made with the "Making Christmas Bright" stamp set and Christmas Bulb Builder Punch from page 7 of the Holiday Catalog.  Fortunately these are both on the Carry Over list, so will be available for purchase till at least when the Annual Catalog is released.  
I used Real Red and Call Me Clover Cardstock - and the All Is Bright DSP which is on the Year End Clearance - and when it's gone - it's gone!  To make this card I cut the front part of the base in 1/2 - then added a smaller focal point of the layered bulbs.
You can see how the card is layered better in the picture below.  Each of the large bulbs were stamped, punched, layered and then popped up on our mini-dimensionals which are perfect for smaller items you want to pop up.  After I figured out where I was going to place the bulb, but before adhering, I sponged a circle of the matching ink to look like the glow of the bulb.  The mini dimensionsals were great, as they fit perfectly behind the top of the bulbs. And of course I stamped the envelope to match.
 Here is the card when it is open.  The focal layer nearly covers all of the white giving you plenty of room to have a sentiment and still write your wishes.  Hope you liked it - sure to brighten someone's day!
