Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop


Welcome to the November PTI Blog Hop!

Our challenge this month was to make a card based on this inspiration photo.


Here is the card I made based on that gorgeous photo.


I kept the focus very simple. 


I loved the home spun feel from the photo and so I used the "Stitches & Swirls" set to add that homey feel into my card.  Then after I stamped the leaf images, I stamped over them with one of the "Background Basics: Circles" stamps in VersaMark.  LOVE how this looks!  Then, I used one of the small dots from the circle set to add berries throughout the green piece.


The holly was cut out using a Lil' Inker Designs die...love that die!  The letters were cut out from the PTI Block Alphabet dies and I can tell that that will be a die I use over and over and over again.  It is hard to see but I used the Vineyard Impression Plate on the white background and the Linen Impression Plate on the green piece after I had finished stamping all of the elements.

Thank you for stopping by today! If you braved the crowds and went out shopping today, I hope you had a very successful trip!  If you would like to see all of the other projects on this blog hop, be sure to visit Nichole's blog!
