November Christmas Cards Blog Hop

Welcome to our first of 2 Blog Hops happening this month. In this Hop you will find that each consultant has created 3 Christmas Cards using non-Christmas paper! They were given the challenge to create these 3 cards using either cardstock or another paper packet of their choice.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you want to follow us across Canada then please start at the beginning and join Deanne in NewFoundland at If you came from Deanne's blog Treasured Heart then you are in the right place!

For my Santa Card, I have used cranberry cardstock for the base.  White cardstock that I embossed and Black cardstock for the belt.

For my snowman card, I use cranberry again for the base and white cardstock that I embossed with snowflakes and added some glitter to the snowflakes, along with some red ribbon to the side.

For my snow friends card, I used the Bundled Buddies stamp set. I used twilight for the base.  I used liquid applique for some snow.  I masked the tree behind the racoon and our markers to color them in.  I also heat embossed the saying in silver.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is  Darla'sBlog Caution: Crafting is Contagious
