Red and Green Blog Hop Winner

Yeah!!  We have a winner!!!

and she said . . . . 

This is a lovely card. well designed and constructed...

Beautiful use of the colours too.

My favourite Christmas tradition is at tea time on the day after boxing day we have a small gift that was hanging on the tree. Rather than under it. they have to be inexpensive but it stops that feeling of 'let down' the next day.. something to get the children excited again. LOL

So ScattyShirley, please email me your shipping information to get that CuttleBug folder to you for your prize.

Thank you everyone for notes on the post!!  I loved reading the holiday traditions and commentary on the cards created.

Here is the project that I have created for today's hop.

So I made a trio of cards for my red and green "card".  Don't you just LOVE how the thin red square gives an illusion of a third and fourth layer?!?!  I LOVE how these cards turned out! 

I started with a 5 x 5 card base using Dotted Swiss Multi-Pack, a layer of Simply Smooth White Cardstock with alphabet stamps from my stash to stamp "Merry" multiple times; a thin 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 square of Dotted Swiss Multi-Pack.  The "Christmas Blessings" is also from my stash stamped on Simply Smooth White Cardstock.  The trees are cut with my Cricut via Make-The-Cut from the library.  The papers used for this were from Fairy Flora Paper Pad, and Dotted Swiss Multi-Pack.  Also, I used the WONDERFUL 1/8" Scor Tape to assemble it all.    

Here are the insides of the card . . . I just love how the trees turned out perfectly for this!

My Inspiration for my card came from the Clear and Simple Ipod App

If interested, here is a cut file with all the shapes I used.  The oval and square are mine but the tree (Pine Trees) I snagged from the MTC library.

So what do you think?  Next, head on over to Sandi's blog for more great ideas!!

thanks for looking!!!
