Good morning ladies,I am so excited today because I am a part of the Christmas Cards Blog Hop over at Creations with Becka. We have an exciting line up of ladies who have all created Christmas cards to give you ideas of homemade cards you can all make to send to your friends and family this holiday season. So to start off, if you came from Tracy than you are in the right place. If you just stopped by to say Hi, please start from the beginning of the hop over at Creations with Becka. Make sure you go through the whole hop and comment on each blog so you are eligible for the grand prize blog candy Becka is giving away.
WOW, can you believe it is December already? This year seems to have flown by. Christmas will be here in 4 weeks, crazy right! I still have so much to do, buy gifts, decorate the house, hang lights and then the baking. But at least I am ahead on one thing, Christmas Cards…and hopefully after finishing the blog hop we have inspired you and have given you ideas on your Christmas cards you want to make for you family and friends this year.I always get Christmas cards in the mail up until Christmas and even some after Christmas from the late senders, but most of the cards I receive are store bought, none of them have the special feeling when you open them like “WOW someone really put a lot of time and effort into this” and that is why I like to make my own cards. I think it just adds that WOW factor and gives the person you are sending it to the feeling of you really care and you took the time to make the cards.
The card I made for this hop was just a quick card I whipped up for a friend using some embossing powder and my Stampin Up stamps. The paper is from Joann's the red paper is actually craft velvet? I dunno, I found it in the paper area and had to have it. I did use some rhinestones to jazz up my card. I didn't want to go over board on this card. I like how it came out.
To make this card you will need:
Gold Embossing Powder
Hot Fix Rhinestones
Velvet paper from Joann's in Red
Cream shimmer paper also from Joann's
Comfort and Joy Stampin Up Stamp Set.
Versamark Emobssing Pad
