Papertrey November Blog Hop

I could not resist playing along with this month's blog hop. Take a look at the inspiration photo below.


This is Christmas to me! While I love all of the nontraditional color combos that I see, I am a traditional girl at heart. I took my inspiration from the red and white presents on the stairs. I received my Papertrey order on Wednesday and the first thing I HAD to play with was the Quatrefoil cover plate die. I loved the look of Dawn's card with kraft on kraft, so I had to try it with my favorite neutral, Rustic White. The little winter penguin set was sitting by me so I grabbed the snowflakes to fill in the spaces. The sentiment is from Verve's Richly Blessed set.


I stamped some snowflakes in Vintage tea dye and edged the mat stack and card as well. While I was on the red and white kick I decided to make another simple card with the poinsettias from YOF and added a punch of green with the sentiment.


I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. For those of you brave enough to face the Black Friday sales, be safe!
