Purple Cows Holiday Idea Blog Hop

Hey there!! Welcome to Purple Cow's Holiday Blog Hop! If you've hopped here from Samantha's fabulous blog, then you are well on your way and have been treated to some wonderful eye candy from our terrific DT members!! If you just happened to pop in on my blog, join us...I guarantee you'll have a great time. Just go back Purple Cows' blog and start from there. Be sure to leave comments on each blog and make it all the way to the end of the hop for a chance to win RAKs and an awesome prize from Purple Cows!!! Wouldn't that be a nice little treat?

I used Purple Cows 2-in-1 Trimmer along with designer blades 2801, 2803, 2810, and 2811 and Making Memories Mistletoe line to create this Christmas card. It was very simple to make! I just cut strips of patterned paper using the different blades and layered them along the bottom of the card.

I spritzed the top portion with Olive Branch Shimmerz Spritz, cut the trees from patterned paper, painted them with Pixie Dust Blingz and adhered with foam adhesive. I added a few little embellishments and now I have a great accompaniment to any gift or cute a gift card holder!

Here's a close-up of the different borders and the bling.

supplies: patterned paper- Making Memories, cardstock- Bazzill; ribbon- Junkitz; Iridescent paint and Shimmering Spritz- Shimmerz Paints; gems- Zva; label- Dymo; trimmer- Purple Cows; adhesive- glue arts, glue dots int'l; ink- -clearsnaps


I hope you enjoyed this project!
