Check Out the Close to My Heart Christmas Card Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart 
 Christmas Card Blog Hop! 

This hop I am following {Melissa Robinson's Blog.}   We have 20 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this Christmas Card Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.      

This year has gone by super fast and Christmas is almost upon us.  It is time to make our Christmas cards and we hope that you will find some great ideas for your cards.

I really wanted to use our Beary Christmas Paper Pack (X7225B) for my card.  I love the reds and the greens found in this paper pack.

I also loved the card found in our Holiday Expressions Idea Book using the flamingo and snow globe, so I decided to recreate this card using Beary Christmas paper.

Here is my card.

See the cranberry shadow behind the snow globe?  I used the Two Tier Eclipse technique to add a little pizzaz to my card. I started out with the idea of cutting a word out with my thin cuts but was inspired by the Warmest Wishes Stamp set and thin cuts. (Z3385).  This is such a wonderful stamp set.  I used almost every stamp in this set making this card.  Love it!

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I would love for you to show me a little love by leaving me a comment and then please go to our next artist, {Wendy Kessler's Blog} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.

  1. Ahhhh...a little tropical Christmas fun. CUTE!

  2. I never think of warmth and flamingoes at Christmas (because it is SO COLD where I live...) but it is different in other places. Definitely a tropical twist - I like what you did with the flamingo and presents inside the snow globe.

  3. So fun, I love the snow globe, I have not bought it but it thanks to your card it is moving to the short list.

  4. Way to think outside the box on this one!

  5. Fabulous card! Thanks for sharing the two tier eclipse technique. Something I need to try soon

  6. Cute card! Love the sequins on the palm trees.
