Keeping Christmas - Sending Holiday Cheer

Welcome to the Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop!  If you are looking for some inspiration for Christmas cards, you have come to the right place.  Our team has decided to do a monthly Keeping Christmas Inspiration Hop! We will be sharing Christmas creations on the 25th of each month.

The whole idea is to have some Christmas cards and projects in our stash all ready to go for December 2018!

I used the beautiful Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set by Power Poppy to create my card.  I stamped the single tree from the set three times with Versamark ink and then heat embossed the trees with WOW Metallic Gold Rich Pale Super Fine Embossing Powder.  I also stamped and heat embossed the sentiment.  I diecut the panel with the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Your Next Stamp.  The slim strip of paper is some gold glitter paper from my stash and the pretty plaid is from My Mind's Eye - Sugar Plum collection.  I then adhered the panel onto a white cardbase.  The enamel dots are also from the My Mind's Eye - Sugar Plum collection.  This was such a simple card to create and would be perfect if you need to mass produce some Christmas cards this year. 

Please hop along and be sure to visit each of the blogs.  There's lots of inspiration and ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
