October Hoarders Hop

Welcome to the October Craft Hoarders Anonymous Hop! You should be coming to my blog from Glenda Brooks blog. After visiting me, hop over to Tracey Sabella's blog next! To start at the beginning of the hop, and for the full list of Bloggers, go to Gloria's Blog!


It is official, this is my first Christmas card of 2015!  I used several papers and images from the Retro Christmas Creativity Kit on Polly's Paper Etsy shop.  I layered up the papers and elements on Cranberry Bliss Cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  I inked all of the edges with Festive Berries Distress Ink.  I added Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust to the ornament and also some white flat back pearls.  I added a band and Triple Loop Double Layered bow made from Ribbons at the Really Reasonable Ribbon store.  I stamped the "Peace" sentiment onto a small tag and tucked it into some Poinsettia flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I added a small bouquet of flowers to the bow as well.  I adhered the entire panel to a white A2 card base.

I hope you are enjoying the hop so far, and my card got you into the Christmas spirit a bit.  Please make sure to visit all of the other blogs on this hop and leave the talented ladies some love.  Have a wonderful day!

Beautiful Christmas card, Amber! I love traditional colors on cards too. I don't think it's ever too early to start Christmas cards.
