12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop--Day 8

Welcome to Day 8 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.

This card took me a little while to get it just the way I wanted it.  I used green card stock as the base of my card and traced the Christmas tree shape onto a piece of kraft card stock.  After cutting out the shape, I adhered the ruffled ribbon onto the back of the cut out.  I flipped it over, added a star to the top of the tree, stamped a sentiment at the bottom, then adhered it to my card base.  The hardest part was putting the ribbon on and getting the look just right.
