CTMH Team Blog Hop - Christmas Cards

The Pineapple Paper Artists are getting ready for the holidays by making Christmas cards.  Whether you are starting your journey here, or you came from Martha's blog, this hop is perfect for helping you design your own cards or just putting you into the holiday mood!

In Close To My Heart's Annual Inspirations Idea Book there are paper packs appropriate for many different occasions.  There's one that was definitely designed as a Christmas paper and another that is perfect for winter projects.  These papers work wonderfully for the holidays for which they were designed.  However, they can be used for so much more.  I love stretching my papers by using them for purposes not originally intended.  To create this Christmas card, I used a background paper from the Pathfinding Paper Pack (X7186B), which was designed to be a fall-themed paper.  But doesn't it work great in conjunction with Smokey Plum?
Next, hop on over to Scrappy Sandra's Custom Creations, to see another beautiful card.


  1. Very pretty. I've been experimenting with this stamp set but I think I'll stop experimenting and use your idea. Nicely done.
