A Very Merry Christmas - October SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to my Heart, October Stamp of the Month (SOTM) Blog Hop. This month's stamp set is called A Very Merry Christmas. It has so many possibilities. Unfortunately, I just returned home from a two week vacation and totally forgot about this hop. So, I literally threw this together in the past three hours. I guess that's a good thing to show how easy this set is to use. However, it's time to post and I just realized that I forgot the Glitter. What's a Christmas card without glitter!!! You'll just have to imagine the ornaments glittery.

If you've come here from Kathleen's blog, then you're on the right path. If you just happened upon my blog, then you can continue along with this hop from here and when you return back here, you know you've seen them all.


My card today is actually a gift card holder cut from the CTMH exclusive newest Cricut Cartridge called "Artiste"This cuts everything out for you that all you have to do is fold it where shown. The paper I used is from the Pear and Partridge Paper Pack. The tag and the ornaments were all cut from the same Cricut cartridge. I first stamped the Don't Open image on the tag. After cutting a bunch of ornaments, I used the ends of the Don't open stamp and stamped it on the ornaments. One in Cranberry and the other in Olive.
I then turn another ornament the opposite way and stamped the tree on it. All were mounted with foam tape. Bakers Twine - Harvest Collection, was used for the bow and ornament hangers. The Bling at the top is from the Bouquet Assortment.

Now hop on over to Allisa's Blog and see what fabulous eye candy she has for you.

Here is the entire stamp set.
