***12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVE AWAY ALERT***
To qualify for ALL of the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tuesday, December 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S! There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event and some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Times's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!

Now...onto my project!

I'm still in the process of designing my Christmas cards for this year and so when I was creating projects for this blog hop, this was one of the finished projects. I really like this simple card and it would be easy to produce many of them. So...I think I may have found the design!


I used PaperTrey Ink Kraft cardstock for the card base (it is an A2 sized card) and the DCWV Christmas Combo stack for the patterned paper. The trees were cut from the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge at 4 3/4 inch in height. I cut the top layer twice, hiding the opposite tree with my Gypsy, to get the two different patterns. I wrapped some Timeless Twine around the trees and on my tag.


I used the My Creative Time "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" for the stamp and the MCT Curly Label die for the tag and then inked both the tag and card with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I used some eyelets from my stash on the tag as well. To make my trees have some *snowcapped* tips, I sprayed the tip of the tree with some adhesive spray and then sprinkled Martha Stewart course and fine glitter on them. I did this to the ground as well.


You can view and purchase all of the My Creative Time stamps and dies HERE!!

Your next stop in the hop is the AMAZINGLY talented KATIE!!

Blog Hop Line Up:
Emma - Start here!
Jeanne - That's me!
Katie - Your next stop!
