Blast from Christmas Past Blog Hop with Taylored Expressions

Happy Friday!!! It's a perfect day for a little Blast from the Past blog hop with Taylored Expressions. This month the focus was past holiday sets. Woo hoo...another Christmas card to add to my stash.

I used FTL112 from the Clean and Simple blog for the layout. I had visions of a white winter wonderland for this card...it didn't turn out exactly as I'd planned, but I'm still quite happy with it. I used an image and sentiment from Home Sweet Home. The sentiment made me think of felt...it feels so nice and cozy...so I decided to layer Mr. Snowman Cuppie on a piece of white felt that I cut out with my beaded circle Nestabilities. Cuppie is coloured with copics and I added clear rhinestones around the outside for some bling. To give the felt a little more stability I backed it with a piece of Choice Snow White that I cut out with the same nestie shape. At first I was going to use white ribbon, and make all the layers white, but I decided to add blue for the sky then I remembered my red Baker's twine and thought that tied in nicely with his red scarf.


I hope you're getting plenty of ideas for holiday cards as you hop along today. Seeing all these cards just makes me smile. After all, it's getting closer and closer to the most wonderful time of the year!!!  :-)

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
