World Card Making Day Thank You Blog Hop

 
 
 
 
    Hello and welcome to the very last stop on the  Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking World Card Making Day Thank You Blog Hop You should have arrived from the amazingly talented Vera Wirianta Yates! I hope you have enjoyed hopping along with the wonderfully talented designers that I share this honor with.

      We were asked to use product included in the fabulous prize package we received and create a card in the categories we won in.  So, a Christmas card in March is what you are getting from me!
To create my card I used a Stampin' Up Simply Sent kit that was included in our prize package. The patterned kraft card stock, red bakers twine, and the snowflake behind the sentiment were from the kit. The sentiment, patterned card base, and glitter accents are from a card kit in our prize packages from CTMH. I stamped the sentiment onto vellum using StazOn ink in Tuxedo Black. Be sure to let it dry completely before adhering it to your card. (I learned this the hard way, lol.) Assemble your layers, add the glitter accents, and the bakers twine as a final touch and presto! Christmas in March!
 
Now what would a blog hop be without prizes right? So, I am giving away a $15 Stampin' Up! gift certificate to one lucky commenter on this post!
