Christmas Card Blog Hop!

Welcome to our first of 2 Blog Hops happening this month. In this Hop you will find that each consultant has created 3 Christmas Cards using non-Christmas paper! We were given the challenge to create these 3 cards using either cardstock or another paper packet of our choice.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Deanne in Newfoundland at Treasures Heart. If you came from Michelle M.'s of Twirl 'n Time then you are in the right place!

For my first card, (4 1/2 x 5 1/2) I used the very versatile Moonlight Paper Pack.


I just love how easy it was to use this "Halloween" paper for "Christmas"!!

The card design is from the NEW Make it From Your Heart Sketch Book, pattern 24.  I did some random stamping on the Slate Cardstock with Slate Ink for the tone on tone effect.   The self adhesive Glitter Ribbon and Bling Gems really make this card POP!

Products used on this card include:
Moonlight Paper
Make it From Your Heart Sketch Book
C1510 Merry and Bright Stamp Set
Slate Ink
Sponge
Tombow Tape Runner
Scissors to cut background around rub On's in Slate Cardstock
Pear and Partridge Compliments Glittery Rub On's

  6. I love when crafters step out of the box and use products designed for one thing for something completely different, like you did with the "Halloween" paper on your Christmas card.
