Welcome to the Holiday Cards Blog Hop. You should have come from Brandi's blog, but don't worry if you started here. The hop is a circle, so just keep going until you get back to where you started. If you get lost along the way, head to Melinda's blog for a complete list of participants.
I chose to focus on the Yuletide Borders Thin Cut. Here's the first card:
And here's my second:
I used both of the newly released paper suites of Serenity (top card, blue background) and Jingle Joy (bottom card). I also used the Rectangular Stitched Frames Thin Cuts with both cards. Other supplies used on the first card were Diamond Stickles (to created the snow on the first card) and Micro-tip Scissors to cut the sentiment apart carefully. One the second card, I added my background paper over the top of Flamingo cardstock before running it through the stitched frame thin cut. I accented with the thin triple line stamp from Lovely Borders stamp set. I used the Clear Shimmer Brush where the Flamingo was exposed to carry some of the glitter from the sentiment and the tiny strip of White Shimmer Trim at the very top to another part of the card. This second card is very simple to recreate multiple times, where the first one was a bit labor intensive.
Now you're off to Melissa's blog. I can't wait to see what she and all the other CTMH Makers have created. I don't know about you, but I have around 80 cards to make, so I'm looking for inspiration!
Until next time,
I love these cards and your style!ReplyDelete

These are both so gorgeous- if I had to pick one I'd say the top one is my favourite, but I love them both!ReplyDelete
