ICS Blog Hop November - Trimming the Town


Hello and Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop for November!

This month our theme is "Chrsitmas is Coming!" and we are sharing Christmas cards with you.

Here is my card front: 

I have chosen to use the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper for my card.  I used the image piece with the houses and trees for the front and the sentiments are also cut from the DSP!  The beauty of this package of Designer Series Paper is that you do not need a stamp set to make a card with a Christmas greeting in a number of different languages.


Here is the inside of the card:

I used another image piece of DSP on the left hand side and the greeting is from the stamp set "Wrapped in Christmas".

For the stamped image I used Stampin' Write Markers in Poppy Parade and Old Olive to colour the stamp and then "huffed" on the stamp before I stamped onto my cardstock.  I really like this greeting.
The supplies used for my card are listed below.

Don't miss any of the projects!  Follow along our blog hop with Candy as she will have a great project idea for you!
