CTMH Holiday Gift Guide Blog Hop

Close To My Heart has just published a special Holiday Gift Guide that you are going to love!  About two dozen of my regular blog hop group have decided to share our favorites from the new Guide to inspire you to get crafting this holiday season.  If you've already started hopping, you should have arrived from Sheila's blog.  From here, you'll hop on over to Gina's Little Corner of Stampin' Heaven.  (If you get lost anywhere along the way, feel free to come back here and view the complete list HERE.)

My card uses the new Season's Tweetings stamp set, which is available only as a set to create 6 adorable gift bags.  (Extra gift bags can be purchased separately.)
I love all the birds in this set!  I decided to make a card rather share a gift bag.  To make my card, I began with a CTMH/Cricut Artbooking ornament shape that I cut at 4.5" (real dial size) on White Daisy card stock.  Then, I cut the ornament again with a piece of the new Sparkle & Shine paper pack.  I stamped the Owl with Slate ink, the hat  and sentiment with Ruby ink, and the banner with Juniper to match the paper pack.  I used all three of the new Sparkle & Shine washi tape to color and pattern to the card, and then adhered the stamped images.  I finished off the card with a little baker's twine.

Be sure to hop along the rest of the blog hop to see all kinds of great ideas with the new Holiday Gift Guide.  Go to Gina's Little Corner of Stampin' Heaven next.

Finally, I'm llinking this card up to the H2H You Better Shape Up challenge too.  Thanks for hopping by!
