Three Amigos December Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we chose to make 3x3 cards. The size is perfect to add as a tag to a gift, to tuck into a lunch box, or just to brighten someones day. I am sharing two cards I put together with a few leftover scraps from the White Pines Card WOTG. I stamped the cards with images from the White Pines Scrapbook WOTG stamp set and sentiments from the new A Million Thanks stamp set.

On my first card, I stamped the holly and berry images onto the white sentiment piece and then again on a scrap piece of white cardstock. I cut the holly leaves and berries out from the scrap cardstock and popped them up over the stamped images on the sentiment piece with 3-D foam tape. It's hard to tell from the picture, but I added Gold Foil Tape above the strip of B&T paper to add some shine.



 I also used a glitter pen to highlight the sentiment, designs on the holly leaves, and berries. 


I used the tree image for my second card and added Fern Extra Thick Twine and Bitty Sparkles. The tree is also popped up with the 3-D foam tape.


I used the glitter pen and Gold Foil Tape to add a bit of shimmer to this card as well.


I wanted to make a third card, but it just didn't turn out.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hop on over to Lisa's blog and Donna's blog to see what they created for you.
