Around The World On Wednesday November Blog Hop Favorite Month

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday November Blog Hop and our theme this month is our Favorite Month. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you.
It was a hard decision coming up with my favorite month. After much consideration, I decided that December is my favorite because I love Christmas and Christmas is a time for family. Ten years ago, just a few days before Christmas, we adopted two kittens from our local animal shelter and along with our Black Lab, they are an important part of our family. So I decided that I would use the Sweet Little Stockings Bundle to create my Christmas card design to celebrate our furbabies. I used the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder to add texture to the background and the Picture This Dies to create the windows for my card design.

This cute Christmas card has wonderful texture created by the Macramé 3D Embossing Folder. It reminds me of a cable knit sweater, which I love to wear on cold December days. The windows created by the Picture This Dies are perfect for the sweet cats and dog from the Sweet Little Stockings Bundle and I had so much fun coloring the images with Stampin' Blends Markers. I popped up the Just Jade layer with Stampin' Dimensionals to create depth in the design and attached the images with Stampin' Dimensionals inside the windows. The sentiment has been heat embossed with White embossing powder onto the Real Red label and ties in with the Real Red, Just Jade and Basic White color combination. I added a couple of Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a touch of bling to finish off the card design.
