Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings Keeping Christmas

Nov. 25, 2019

Can you believe November is almost over?  It is our last post of 2019 to share our Christmas ideas with all of you!  If you played along all year, you should have a stash of cards ready to address for the holidays! 


It's time for this month's installment of the Keeping Christmas Inspriration Blog Hop!  The Challenge Design Team is sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month!

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in your 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!

I have always loved this song, so I decided to make a couple of cards with the Favorite Things stamp set from Papertrey Inks.  I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on pink and turquoise card stock. 

I used the Simon Says Stamp Brilliant Gifts Wafer Die to create the packages.  I cut it twice in Kraft paper and twice in white.  I added a piece of tape on the back of the Kraft ones so most of the pieces stayed in tact.  I only had to piece a few pieces back in the spaces.  I glued the white outline on  top of the Kraft cut outs.   I did add dimensional tape on the back to make it pop.  A few white enamel dots were added for fun. 

Do you have a favorite?  I love non-tradional colors for Christmas.  You could make them in so many colors!  I may make a few more to add to my stash. 

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

The hop is hosted by the fabulous Kelly Lunceford's blog, so head over there to start from the beginning.

ENJOY the blog hop!  I hope we inspired you to make a few cards, too!
