House of Cards Blog Hop!! =)

Pin It

I'm LUCKY to be a Part of the House of Cards Blog Hop today as a part of the Paper Sweeties Team!!  We are joining Mynn Kitchen for a Blog Hop to help celebrate the end of term at the House of Cards, running Dec. 1st - 15th!! There are several Prizes up for Grabs and you can check them all here:End of Term Blog Hop!!! + PRIZES!
We were given the BEAUTIFUL Inspiration Photo above and I created a FUN little Card using it as my starting point!! I wanted to use the Colors as my main focal and I went to work!!
I Stamped and Embossed the Sweet Little Tree Image from the Trim the Tree Stamp Set a couple times!! I cut one out using the Coordinating Trim the Tree Sweet Cuts Dies and then I Fussy Cut each of the Tree Sections out and Layered them on top using foam tape for a FUN 3-D Tree!! I then added a Rusty Star and a Bow that I stamped and Embossed from the Holly Days Stamp Set and then cut out using the Coordinating Holly Days Sweet Cuts!! I used the Large Stitched Tag Die from Paper Smooches as my base and then I cut the Snow Bank from the Thanks Snow Much Sweet Cuts and layered several together as well as a Vellum Layer that I stamped and Embossed my Sentiment from using the Make the Season Bright Stamp Set!! =) I added a Junk Bow and a Vintage Button and my card was finished!!

I hope you'll stop by the rest of the DT Blogs to see what they have created and that you'll leave them some LOVE along the way!! Then I hope you'll join in on the FUN and Play along with the Challenge!! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!
