Home for the Holidays SOTM Blog Hop...

Welcome to this month's SOTM Blog Hop featuring Home For The Holidays...


If you've come from Michelle's Blog, you're on the right track...keep on hopping 'till you get back to where you started.  If you're starting here...WELCOME!!! If you happen to get lost along the way or just want to see who is participating this month, head on over to Melinda's Blog for the complete list!

Here's what the stamp set looks like...CUTE, huh!  All those red lines mean that you can cut those shape using CTMH's Art Philosophy Cricut Collection!



I wanted to use the NEW Artfully Sent Cricut Collection and Snowhaven (LOVE the colors!!!)...so I came up with this 5x7 card and envelope (both patterns can be found on the Cartridge)...
--------------------------------------------------
Here's a close-up of the CHRISTMAS cutout...the Black B&T from Snowhaven in the background is the inside of the card...the "Merry" is from one of the THREE stamp sets you get with the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection...stamped it used Cranberry Ink and fussy-cut around it then pop-dotted with Thin 3D-Foam Tape...added some Silver Sequins because I'm on a sequin kick right now...lol
--------------------------------------------------
I used Thin 3D-Foam Tape to pop up the "Do not peek..." tag...I stamped in Glacier Ink the again in Cranberry.  I took a 3/4" circle punch and punched out the "Until 25" and pop-dotted using Thin 3D-Foam Tape.  The bow is made using a tiny 2" strip of Ruby Chevron Ribbon and Black Hemp
-----------------------------------------------------
Here's the backside of the envelope...envelope was made using Yuletide Carol B&T
-----------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------
Here's a close-up of the Polar Bear stamp that shows on the front of the Envelope...I used the Ruby Chevron Ribbon a couple of places on this card...
----------------------------------------------------------
In order to get this look, I stamped this image 4 times...the Cranberry is the bottom...the Glacier is the snowflake background and I just cut around the square...once in Black and then I cut out around the Polar Bear...then again in Whisper and cut out the scarf and adhered it with Thin 3D-Foam Tape. These cuts were easy to do because it's a lot of strait lines AND it makes it worth it!!!

Thanks for stopping by....
