Hi Everyone!

Back with my last post for today featuring my third card for the Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop that has the theme of Wreaths…….

For my third and final card for the hop I took a Christmas theme again  and decided to make a wreath out of buttons. I die cut a Tag Sale # 4 out of white card and cut the middle out to create a wreath shape. Then I used a selection of buttons to create the wreath and added a ribbon and sentiment to finish.

Here is card 3……..

Back soon with another project!

For my first card I decided to go with a Christmas theme creating a wreath from die cut snowflakes from the Snowflake Flurries Stamp Set and coordinating dies.

Here is Card 1………..

And here is my interpretation……….

Yes it’s my first Christmas Card for 2013! I love making holiday cards of all types but especially Christmas and Halloween cards ( in fact I just may have my first Halloween card of 2013 for you tomorrow…yay!).  I am pleased with this card as I was really drawn to the sketch and I love using less traditional colours for Christmas Cards such as the aqua on this card.

Supplies: Card – Bazzill Marshmallow, PTI Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse. Patterned paper – Basic Grey Aspen Frost 6×6 paper pad. Stamps – PTI Turning a new leaf , Paper Smooches Christmas Sentiment Sampler. Ink – PTI Ripe Avocado.  Dies – PTI Turning a new leaf and Hearts border die, Lawn fawn Hearts. Button – PTI Pure Poppy. Ribbon – From Stash. WR Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. Fiskars Paper Trimmer. Martha Stewart Mini Scoring Board.

Hope you like my card….getting in a holiday mood….Oh dear!!
