I created these fun cards using the Whimsy and Wonder Designer Series Paper and another in more tradition holiday colors with Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.

The bellybands add a great focal point for the front of the card and also help to keep the cards closed during mailing.

I just love the inside of this card with the mix of papers and the basic white piece for your sentiment. Not exactly traditional holiday colors but I just love this paper!

For those of you who prefer more traditional holiday colors, I created another card that I hope you will love!

Here is a look at the inside of this card.

I created my Blog Hop card with the gorgeous Christmas Pinecone Dies using Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent cardstock. I also used the amazing Cork Specialty Paper and the Bark 3D Embossing folder for what I think is a really pretty, rustic card.

When I made my first card (right), I didn't emboss the Cherry Cobbler piece on the top of the card. Although I like this card, I do like the embossed card as well! I die cut and layered the pinecones with Soft Suede and Crumb Cake and finished it off with the pretty Chevron Weave Ribbon in Evening Evergreen. The sentiments for this card are from the Whimsical Tree Stamp Set.

I stamped the inside sentiment in Evening Evergreen and put a small piece of the Cork Specialty paper at the bottom of the card to tie the inside and outside together.

I hope you like this card and if you would like to create one of your own, you can watch my YouTube video to see just how I put this card together. If it's your first time stopping by my channel, I would love it if you would hit the subscribe button and add a comment.

I got the idea for this card from page 23 of the July-December Mini Catalog. The Encircled in Beauty Dies are so beautiful and adding the Silver Foil, Basic White and the gorgeous Mint Macaron Soft Velvet Ribbon, makes this card striking!

I changed up the card size and made this a Slimline card that will fit in a standard #10 envelope for mailing. The inside is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink using one of the stamps from the Encircled in Warmth stamp set.

Here is my YouTube video showing you exactly how I created this card. All of the supplies and dimensions will be listed below the video.

Measurements and Supplies for this card:

Smokey Slate Base - 8 3/4 x 7 3/4

Designer Series Paper - 4 3/4 x 3 1/2

2 pieces 1 3/4 x 3 1/2

Basic White inside piece - 8 1/2 x 3 1/2
