HO HO HO Keeping Christmas

March 25, 2019

 It's time for this month's installment of  Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop! The Challenge Design Team!  We will be sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month!!

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in our stash ready to go for December 2019!

So hop along and be sure to visit each blog. 
There is a lot of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Lesley Croghan (off this month)

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a piece of black and white stripes from the MFT paper pack.  The first card has the vertical stripes and the second has the horizontal stripes.  I distressed two different pieces of watercolor paper.  One with Twisted Citron and the other with  Festive Berries and then I used the MFT Ho Ho Ho Die to cut out the words.  I used the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die for the top white panel.  I used the Ho Ho Ho die on top of the white panel and then adhered the letters for the HO HO HO sentiment.  The sentiment is from SugarPea Designs Here Comes Santa Claus stamp set.  I stamped it in Versa Fine ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder on black card stock.  A few black enamel dots were added to complete my cards. 

The Santa Claus is from the same set and so is the inside sentiment.  I also added the striped papers to the envelope. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!
