October SOTM Blog Hop ~ Very Merry Christmas

 Hello and welcome to the October SOTM blog hop.
 If you have arrived here from 
Katy Taylor's blog  
then you are on the right track, enjoy the hop.
 There are more than 50 consultants sharing their wonderful ideas and 
awesome artwork using this month's set.

Very Merry Christmas

 This is the card I made for this month's swap.
 As usual I was assigned a paper pack for the swap.
This month I was assigned Clementine. While I love the Clementine 
papers I had a hard time seeing them as "Christmasy".
 According to the rules of our swap we are supposed to at least
 use one of the B&T designs. Admittedly, I used the bare minimum on this card. 
The blue design on the top is from Clementine. The rest of the card uses two
 of our new colors, Ruby and Slate. I embossed the Slate piece of cardstock 
with a snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sanded it
so that the white core shows through. I love that effect!
 All of the shapes were cut on The Cricut. I finished it off with a bit of bling
and some Slate dotted ribbon. A Very Merry Christmas indeed.  

Supplies Used:
October SOTM set - Very Merry Christmas 
Clementine Paper Pack
Ruby Cardstock
Slate Cardstock
Colonial White Cardstock 
Ruby Exclusive Ink
Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder
Distress Kit
Slate Polka Dot Ribbon
Black and Grey Sparkles

 Now hop on over to
 Krista Ritskes blog 
 and see what she has created. 
See you next month!
