The Creative Inking Blog Hop is coming up tomorrow August 20th at 9:00 PM Eastern Time so make sure you are here for that as it is always fun. Tomorrow stop by my blog and hop around. I usually post in the morning and this is later in the evening. For that reason I will take off from posting for a couple of days so you can enjoy taking time to hop. It will be a Holiday Catalog sneak peek so you will not want to miss it. Because I had so much of the new product out, I decided to make a card that is a sneak peek to get you fired up for the blog hop sneak peek. This card serves a dual purpose. My friend Ann has a Christmas Birthday. I always try to make her birthday special since she shares it with the day we celebrate Jesus' birth.
The above card comes from the Stitched With Cheer project kit. I used the Happy Birthday from the stamp set coming out named Shake & Celebrate. It is a wonderful set to get with a bundle but was the perfect size for this card.
How I deviated with this card. The card is to have the trees stitched to the card but I had very little patience for that. What I did to make it easier for me was to stitch the trees. It is extremely easy because there are holes to guide you through the tree. I then added snail to the back and adhered it to the holes where the trees were to be stitched. It worked. Do what is best for you, but for me this was a technique I used for this card. Another tip or suggestion is to trace the envelope liner so you can make envelope liners out of other papers. This is a great kit and if you do not like sewing, no problem. It is easy to deviate to where you do not have to sew.
