Welcome! Today’s hop challenge is to create something for the holidays. You will see quite a variety today so I hope you make the rounds of all participants.

My card for today is different for me and I can’t decide… well, you will have to see for yourself. I began with Crumb Cake card stock for an A2 size card. I die cut two circles with the Stylish Shapes Dies, one using the Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP ‘cuz it looks like snowflakes to me! The other is in vellum using the Lovely Layers Vellum run through the Wintry 3D embossing folder after being die cut, using the snowflake folder. You remember this is a two folder item, right? The other folder has pine needle branches which I also love.

The background circle is in Sweet Sorbet and I put dimensionals on the back to adhere to the card front. Vellum, because it shows any adhesive, is attached with glue dots behind the added sequins 😁 The sequins are Iridescent Rhinestone Jewels. The way I did that was to attach the sequins, then add the glue dots to adhere it to the other circle. The tree comes from the Happy Forest Dies. Trees are one of my favorite dies – and this is like a ‘Charlie Brown’ tree to me. I die cut three of these from Thick Basic White card stock and adhered them together for strength and depth. I cut mini dimensionals to use behind the trunk of the tree and a bit of liquid glue for the part that attaches to the vellum circle. I added an additional cut mini dimensional to the back of the vellum to support the top of the tree so it’s pretty solid.

The sentiment is from the Hope & Peace stamp set and is stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink on a Basic White panel die cut with the Stylish Shapes banner die. I enlarged it a bit to fit the sentiment. This too was added with dimensionals behind it ~ and the card front was done.

For the inside… another of the sentiments from Hope & Peace stamp set stamped in Sweet Sorbet ink on the Basic White panel. This was adhered with liquid glue to the inside of the card.

The envelope got more of the Sweet Sorbet Tea Boutique 6×6 DSP panel adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit. Now… time to visit the others on the hop. You may click the next or previous buttons if you started here or click on a name to take you elsewhere. Enjoy the hop!
