Home for the Holidays Keeping Christmas

 Sept. 25, 2020

It's time for this month's installment of the Keeping Christmas Inspiration 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 2020!

So hop along and be sure to visit each blog.

There is a lot of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a black layer heat embossed with white powder after stamping the new MFT City Block Background with Versa Mark ink.  I love the way this turned out.  The snowdrifts are created using a die.  The red cardinal is created using the MFT Holly Jolly Cardinal Die.  I will admit it was time consuming to add all the small details, but it is so worth the end result.  The sentiment is stamped in black.

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!
