Welcome to the Caardvarks and CC&M Blog Hop

I am so glad you stopped by for the blog hop. For today's hop, I made a festive Holiday card using the Christmas Tree die-cut #4 found here. If you search the store go to Holidays, then Christmas you will find all the holiday die-cuts.


For this card, I ran the Tree through the my Cuttlebug. I love embossing Creative Cuts & More die-cuts because it is an easy way to add some pizazz to them. I also wanted to show you that you don't need a lot of patterned paper for your holiday cards. All you need are some die-cuts, cardstock and ribbon to make a great card. I know we have been on a budget for some time so this is a great way to save some money.




Next, I added some of my favorite stamps from myStampBOX. You can find the HoHoHo stamp set here.

Your right it's a very cute card with very little money invested into it if you have the right supplies. I would need to buy a cuddlebug which is no cheap investment! :( Someday!
