Christmas Card Workshop

I have been making several Christmas Cards with the Close to My Heart "Frosted" and "Sparkle and Shine" Paper Packs.  Trying to choose which ones to make for my Christmas Card Workshop isn't easy. 

I want each one to be special, yet not too involved. My goal is to have everyone complete 10 cards in less than 3 hours. So last night I went through all of the cards and eliminated any that I felt would take too long to make.

Here are some of the cards I will be using for the Workshop:

Three Amigo's Close to My Heart Mini Blog Hop

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

For our Second "Hop" we chose the "Always Grateful" Stamp set (C1559) which you can purchase for $13.95 on my Close to My Heart website. 

For my project I took this Autumn Stamp set and turned it into a "Wintery" Holiday Card.  Frist I stamped the tree on a circle of Colonial White Cardstock with Slate ink.  Then I stamped 2 more trees in the background with Whisper ink. I embossed the circle by putting it through the Cuttlebug to give it a snowy look.


Other CTMH products used:
Frosted Paper
Bamboo Cardstock
B1412 - Perfect Fit Holidays

Now hop over to Susan's Blog and see what she has created to share with you!
