Welcome to the November Tour de Freaks Blog Hop!  Can you believe it…Thanksgiving is NEXT week and then right around the corner – CHRISTMAS!!!  With Christmas quickly approaching out theme this month is “It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas” – and is it EVER!

If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from LeeAnn Greff’s Flowerbug’s Inkspot blog.  LOVE her stuff!

Oh you LOVE the Reindeer Clips?  I do…they are just THE CUTEST!  At first, I have to say, I didn’t like them much but then I had this idea and just HAD to have them.  First let’s start with the card I made…

CardClassOrnamentI do love mostly white cards and when you add a little red and a little silver you can have a PERFECT Christmas card!

This is a card we we are doing tomorrow at my November Christmas Card class.  I love the overall simplicity of it but the red foil (in the stripes on the base and behind the ornament) really give this some Christmas ‘sparkle’!

This set is one of the Christmas sets from the main catalog – sometimes we forget about the stuff in the catalog when we are focused on the Holiday Mini.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White THICK – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, round the bottom right of the card
  • Red Foil – cut TWO 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card base
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, round bottom right corner, stamp greeting using Real Red, add panel to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White THICK – cut out small round ornament
  • Silver Foil – cut out ornament top, add to ornament
  • Red Foil – punch out 1 3/4″ circle, add behind white ornament and add using dimensionals
  • Tie bow in Silver Cording Trim and add to top of ornament.

Today is the day!  It’s time for the November Create with Connie and Mary Mini Session!  AND this month we have something special so read to the end!
