OperationWriteHome Blog Hop


Hi Everyone,

Here is the card I made for the World Card Making Day Blog Hop. I was trying to make something for Christmas that would be easy to replicate--and this one is definitely easy for that one. Check out Bonus Sketch #29, which is pretty close to the measurements of the card.

I used Papertrey Ink's Snowfall stamp set to create the background snowflakes. There is a narrow strip of snowflakes that can be stamped three times down the card to create the snowflakes. The trees are cut from Verve's Winter Fun Die set and the Winter Tree stamp set to match. The sentiment is also from Verve's Bright Spirit set. I love Verve stamps, they really give you a beautiful image. I've made more cards using this set. Check back next week and I'll have another beautiful Christma card made with this set.

  2. Lovely! That tree die is the perfect size for making cards. I've never shopped at Verve and now I'm almost afraid to look. LOL Terrific idea to use the dotted embossing folder on the snow too.
