Christmas Blog Hop

Whoo hoo! It's that time again! PTI blog hop! This month's challenge was to do anything and everything Christmas. Since I'm already in that frame of mind, this wasn't too difficult! :) I went back to Nichole's blog and found the Holiday Cards 101 from 2008 as my inspiration. I love Heather Nichols Jingle all the way card! I let that serve as my inspiration and came up with this...

I did a set of six cards, a notepad and envelopes to match. They'll be an early Christmas gift so the recipient has time to use the cards! I used Merry and Bright and stamped the snowflakes in Fresh Snow and Ripe Avocado on Kraft. Each piece has Fresh Snow adding a little extra detail on the edges. Then, I stamped a tree in Scarlet Jewel and cut it out and adhered it overtop a Scarlet Jewel ribbon. The sentiment is stamped in Dark Chocolate from Dawn's Signature Christmas set.


I used the same idea on my notepad, just a different layout. I made sure to attach the ribbon on the back with some tape so it'll stay when it gets opened.


The inside, I used Nichole's template to make. Such an easy thing to do and it's a great place to put those Christmas receipts in one spot! I did a little snowflake around the edge just to add a little touch.


The envelope I stamped a few snowflakes in Ripe Avocado just to tie everything together. I really like how this all turned out! Helps when you have good inspiration :)



Supplies (all PTI):
Paper - Ripe Avocado, Kraft, Stampers Select White
Ink - Fresh Snow, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Scarlet Jewel
Stamps - Merry and Bright, Signature Christmas
