12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop--Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!  You should have gotten here from Lori's blog.  If you just happened upon my post, head over to Lisa's blog to get started and see everyone's great projects!  This hop will take place November 24 through December 5, and the new postings each day will be posted by 8 am Eastern standard time.  This hop will be full of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you well on your way of creating all of those beautiful Christmas projects!  This is an awesome way to get a lot of your Christmas cards and scrapbook layouts finished, home decorations completed, and maybe even be inspired to create something using a new technique that you have never tried.  There will be a new project posted each and every day by all the wonderful amazing ladies in this hop, and we will also have a guest designer or two for you to visit each day.

Most of the projects I will be sharing with you for this hop are Christmas cards I made this year during a Christmas in July challenge.

My card today was a pretty simply one to make.  The green card stock you see at the top is what I used for  the base of the card.  The red & white piece at the bottom is from a Christmas 6x6 paper pad I found in my stash, and I cut a piece of white card stock for the center piece and used one of my border punches on it.  I adhered a piece of ribbon across the white piece, then just layered them to achieve the look I wanted.  The holly embellishment was in my stash, and I added some red rhinestones to the holly berries for a little extra bling.
