Christmas In July Blog Hop


Welcome to the Final Day of our Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Thursday August 1, 2013

HO,HO, HO!! WELCOME TO MARKíS FINEST PAPERS, a Heinrich Coís CHRISTMAS IN JULY BLOG HOP!  DURING THIS FUN CHRISTMAS HOP, MANY OF THE CHRISTMAS SETS IN MARKíS FINEST PAPERS, a Heinrich Co.ís ON-LINE SHOP WILL BE FEATURED BY MFPíS VARIOUS DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS.  WE HOPE YOU CAN FOLLOW ALONG WITH US ON THE HOP  - AND MAYBE GET A JUMP START ON SOME OF THOSE CHRISTMAS CARDS AND PROJECTS!












Today's special blog hop project is Christmas Cards using Non-Traditional colors.



Here's my offering:  I used stark white cardstock and a Martha Stewart Branch punch to make the Christmas tree.  It's time consuming punching out all those individual branches and then stacking them together to form a tree, but it was a labor of love since I'm so happy with how it came out!


Above, you can see a closer view of the tree and it's 3D effect.  I used the Merry Christmas sentiment from MFP's new Presents Stamp Set.  I finished everything off with a ribbon and a little bling right on the bow!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hop with us for a chance to win this fabulous stamp set
 THE WINNER CHOSEN AT THE END OF THE HOP WILL BE RECEIVING THIS AWESOME CHRISTMAS/WINTER STAMP SET!!


 

Thanks for Joining us today, be sure to stop back by tomorrow for the announcement of the winner of this great stamp set for our Christmas in July Hop.

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Absolutely gorgeous. All that punching was definitely worth it. I love the font on the MFP sentiment.

Definitely worth the time it took to make w/ the MS branch punch. Like the Wintry sparkle of your card.
