Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop

If you are participating in the blog hop, you should have come from Kristine's  blog and if not, then you should start from the beginning with Karen's blog until you come to my blog. 

Welcome to the Holiday Hoopla Blog Hop.  I'm joining some of my fellow A|Muse Studio Consultants this month and our theme is the holidays to celebrate the start of Holiday Hoopla.  It's never too early to get started on your Christmas cards and here's one to get you inspired.  All supplies used to make this card are from a|s unless stated and can be purchased from my webstore 24/7.  Please be sure to contact me directly if your order is $150 or more in order to receive hostess benefits.  

Here are the details on the card.  I started out with a Kraft cardbase and added a piece of twas the night before christmas patterned paper along the bottom.  I also added a piece of Cherry Woodgrain paper because I wanted to keep this flat and easy to mail.  The reindeer is from Nordic Noel and is stamped with French Roast ink onto a piece of Vanilla cardstock which is matted with a piece of Wasabi cardstock.  I stamped the Noel with Cherry ink and then stamped the leaves with Wasabi ink onto a scrap piece of Vanilla, cut them out, and mounted them with 3-D foam adhesive onto the reindeer.  I finished him off with a little bit of liquid pearls (not available through a|s) for the nose and berries.  There you have it--a quick and easy Christmas Card that you can easily mass produce so you'll have time to enjoy the holidays with your friends and family.

Now on to your next stop Pamela's  blog. If you get lost here is the complete list:
