Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge






I took advantage of my day off today to get started on my Christmas cards and decided to play along in Papertrey Ink's November blog hop.  This month's theme is base your project on this inspiration photo.  I drew a lot of inspiration from the photo - the color scheme, the checks, the greenery and the toile paper.  I made two of each of the cards shown above, which makes it a pretty productive day.


This first card has holiday toile-style paper from The Paper Studio on the bottom half and I embossed the top portion using a Cuttlebug folder and then used a brayer to add Fresh Snow ink to the snowflakes.

The striped layer is decorative masking tape from 7Gypsies, and I added May Arts red twine.  The stamps are from Tiny Treats Christmas set.




The plaid paper on this second card is also from The Paper Studio and the bottom Pure Poppy section was embossed and inked with Fresh Snow using a brayer.  The white stitched ribbon is from Stampin' UP! and I added a red twine bow. 


For the last card, I used another embossed and brayered layer, as well as more paper from The Paper Studio.  The music layer is also masking tape from 7Gypsies.

The stamped plaid background is also from the Tiny Treats Christmas set.  All images were colored using Copic and Spica markers.
Thanks for stopping by!

cute, cute, cute!! I love how you used different designs at the top of the cards - not just the mat stack that "coordinates" with TT: Christmas.
