CWCM Holiday Collection Week 4 Blog Hop

Posted by: | Comments (1)



You may have just arrived here from Connie Babbert’s blog as we, the designers for the Create With Connie and Mary Holiday Collection, wind up each of the four weeks with a blog hop!  And this week marks the fourth and final week of this session – so sad – but I’m SO pleased with all the gift giving and decorating ideas I now have for this holiday season!  The projects and tutorials were all amazing!!

My project and tutorial this week uses this, my favorite stamp set of the Holiday Catalogue, Wondrous Wreath, so here is another idea for this stamp set:


Wondrous Wreath sample-3

This card is quick and easy as it requires no cutting with framelits or punching.  I stamped the wreath images onto white cardstock and added a ribbon bow for some texture.  Should you require many Christmas cards this year, this is a card you could mass produce with ease!!

You may be wondering where I found such thin Cherry Cobbler ribbon…

…well, I used the 1″ sheer linen ribbon in the catalogue and sliced off a 6″ length of the edging and then tied that into a bow. 🙂

Supplies used:

Stamps – Wondrous Wreath

Ink & Paper – Trim the Tree DSP, Pistachio Pudding, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White

Accessories – corner rounder punch, Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon

I hope you enjoy our blog  hop today and are now ready to get started on your cards and holiday gifts!  But wait…you aren’t done yet…follow the link below to continue on to Bronwyn Eastley’s blog and see what she has created for today!
