Paper Crafting Blog Hop Gingerbread and Peppermint


Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of projects to share with you featuring December Holidays. You may have arrived from Maureen’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The Gingerbread and Peppermint Suite has lots of options. Select just a few items or get the whole lot! I used the Gingerbread and Peppermint patterned pack to create a dramatic back drop for my merry message. Three die cut shapes from the Pillowbox Dies were used on the card. Can you find all three?

The tag “ribbon” is actually a scrap of real red cardstock for something a little different.

My Youtube video shows how to use the long tag to create the fancy edge on the Real Red cardstock.

Thanks for hopping with us each month. Now click on the next image to zoom to Tracy’s blog and see what fun project she designed.
