  • The November Hop and Shop will begin at 10:00pm November 3rd, with the hop starting at Kim's Blog.
And here's my card, using a sentiment set called Merry and Bright.


I'd been wanting to do a cut out card and I love the Snowflake Trio Die-namics die so I went with it. First, using Sweet Tooth card stock, I cut the bottom edge of the card front with the Perfect Bracket Edge Die-namics die, then die cut the snowflakes.


Then, using Berrylicious card stock, I lined the inside, also cutting the edge with the Perfect Bracket Edge die and lined up the snowflake cutouts, adhering them to the inside directly under the cutout on the front. Both sentiments are from Merry and Bright, and are only two of the wonderful holiday sentiments in various fabulous fonts that you'll just love! Finally, I added some blue flat back pearls in the snowflake centers and tied some silver cord around in a bow. CAS and I like it :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for the last teaser before the blog hop tomorrow night!
