Holiday Cards Blog Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Holiday Cards Blog Hop! I'm sure you are going to find tons of inspiration for those Holiday cards that you need to do and if you have already done them, maybe an idea or two to tuck away for next year ;)

You should have arrived here from the talented Melisa. If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, just hop on over and see Joy at Joy's Life.

For my project, I knew I wanted to use the Happy Holly Days stamp from Joy's Wintery Puns stamp set as soon as I saw it. I pretty much based my card around that stamp.

I decided to make an center step card for my project today. I cut my holly out of the Christmas Cheer cricut cart at 3.5". I popped it up on some foam adhesive to give it more dimension. I added some glitter and bling to make it sparkle and shine.

Here is a look at the inside of the card:

The Merry Christmas stamp also came from the Wintery Puns stamp set. Cute huh? I love the Wintery Puns set! It is absolutely adorable!

I love the "step" cards. They are just so fun to look at because of the dimension. Great design, and I love how you decorated the inside as well. Happy Holidays.
