Welcome to our Featured Paper Blog Hop! We will be showcasing items from our Beary Christmas creative collection with various projects from talented Close to my Heart consultants. If you are visiting from Kathleen’s blog then you are on the right track, if not please start with our Blog Hop hostess, Carol. Next check out the great post at Ramona’s Art Buffet!
I originally made this card for my October card class with the Falling For You papers – but I wanted to play in this month’s Featured Paper Blog Hop, so I remade it with Beary Christmas! This is such a quick and easy card featuring the October Stamp of the Month – Christmas Tunes.
I stamped the wreath in New England Ivy, then added the bow and ribbon in Cranberry. I stamped the O Holy Night ribbon on a scrap of White Daisy and then fussy cut it so I could pop it up with 3D Thin Foam tape. Then, I added a couple of Bitty Sparkles for an extra touch.
Here’s another option where I colored in the holly berries and leaves with Shin Han Touch Twin markers (I used Vivid Green & Carmine). On this one, I also used the Beary Christmas dots in silver (they are bigger than the Bitty Sparkles, so they were a better bet to cover up the smudge I left there!).
- 4 x 5 1/4″ diagonal stripe
- 3 3/4 x 4 1/4″ green plaid (or New England Ivy cardstock)
- 3 1/2 x 4″ White Daisy for stamping plus a scrap for the ribbon.
- 4 1/4″ piece of holly zip strip.
Here’s the same card again in my original Falling For You design.
