Crafting By Designs Blog Hop - Favorite Season

Grab our Badge

Hello Everyone, 

I would like to Thank you for taking the time to join our Introductory Blog Hop today.  Crafting By Designs is growing and the group is moving from a small ning network to a blog platform.  We invite everyone to stop by often to the Crafting By Design Blog and check out the large range of challenges.  

If you just happen to stop by today and are interested in our Introductory Blog Hop, go to the Crafting By Design Blog and start at the beginning to see all the great things our design team has created.  

If you are following the blog hop you should have arrived from

Our blog hop is showcasing each designers favorite season.  My favorite season is winter and the arrival of Christmas.  I enjoy creating cards and sending them out to family and friends.  It's the one time of year that I really touch base with them.  So for this hop I'm showing this year's cards that will be going out in the mail very soon.  

I started with this great stamp set "Cool Yule" from A Muse Studio.

I stamped each tree out in 3 different colors of ink and fussy cut them out.  I topped each tree with a gold sequin piece with a star rhinestone in the middle of it. 

I then stamped the sentiment up in the corner and added some Queen and Company twine to the bottom.  

Here's what I did with the inside.  I debated adding another sequin and star to the top, but I wanted them to fold flat.

Thanks again for hopping along today.  Please leave a comment for you change to win a new "Cool Yule" stamp set.
