November/December New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the November/December
New Product Blog Hop! 

This month I am following {Michelle Stewart's blog}   We have 21 Close to My Heart Consultants participating in this month’s New Product Blog Hop. If you lose your place while traveling through our blog hop, the complete list of participants can be found here.  

Have you seen our gorgeous new November/December (aka Holiday) Catalog?  We have two different paper lines for Christmas and I love them both.  Add into that, some fun new stamp sets and embellishments and you absolutely have to see this catalog.

I love to make cards that have a fun technique or a quirky twist and this card will not disappoint.  It is called a Twisted Card and I found the tutorial hereWhat I love about this card is that it will hold a gift card.  And who doesn't need that at Christmas time?

Here's my card:

I love this card but if you decide to make one, I have a little piece of advice.  Watch the video on my link above.  You will be so sorry if you don't.  I cut this card at least 3 times before I decided to watch the video.

And check out the Custom Ornament Thin Cuts.  This elegant ornament can be cut out solid and stamped with the For the Tree Stamp Set (D1891) or cut out like I did with the fancy inlays that cut at the same time you cut the entire ornament out.  So pretty and Easy.

For this card  used Cedar & Pine Paper Packet (X7251S), Custom Ornament Thin Cuts (Z3533), Evergreen Cardstock (X6030), Smoothie Cardstock (X5985), White Daisy Cardstock (1385), Candy Apple Ink (Z6509), Evergreen Ink (Z6512), Striped Ribbon Bows (Z3550), Silver Glitter Paper (Z3239), and Clear Sparkles (Z3274).

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, {Brenda Lapp} and see what she has made with this adorable stamp set.
