Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 84

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the wonderful Dani Dziama’s blog.  We have some fun holiday treats for you today!

AAA hosted another fantastic “Cards for the Troops” event at work last week.  We made nearly 90 cards and employees put sweet messages inside each card.  We will be distributing them at a local Veteran’s Home this holiday season.

We used the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and coordinating punch.  It made creating 90 cards easy peasy and the card is so cute!

The base is Whisper White accented with a Real Red strip and a little peek of Candy Cane Christmas DSP.   The reindeer image is stamped on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso and punched out.  His nose is blinged out with a Red Glimmer paper circle!  Cute accents include Emerald Envy Metallic Thread, Rhinestones, a circle cut with the Stitched Shapes die, and a circle embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The card is fast and easy to assemble but packs a nice creative punch using these fun tools and embellishments.
