Traditional Christmas Cards

This month, the Cross Canada Blog Hop asks "Do you like traditional or non-traditional Christmas colours, or do you like a combination?" So join us on this hop to see what we all prefer.

If you got here from Donna's blog, you are in the right spot, but if you get lost along the way, just head back to Michelle's blog  where you will find the complete list of hoppers. As you go hopping through our blogs, please leave comments. We love to see what you think of our artwork, whether it is a comment about the project itself or you would like more information about a product or technique we shared.

I guess I am a traditionalist. I love the red, green, gold and silver of traditional Christmas decorations and it shows in my cards and scrapbook layouts. I am sharing some of my Christmas cards with you on this hop and I welcome your comments.

These are the cards I made for my Christmas card workshop and I liked them so much I decided to share them here. I used Cranberry, Topiary and White Daisy cardstock and the City Sidewalks paper pack. I also used some red Sparkle Gems and red Enamel Gems, and City Sidewalks Washi Tape, as well as a variety of Christmas stamps. I also used my Shin Han Touch Twin markers to colour the candle on one of the cards.

That's it for me this month. I hope you like my cards. Please leave comments - whether it is something you like or a technique you would like to know more about, we love to hear from you!

I am the last hopper this month, but you can return to Michelle's blog to hop through again if you like. Come and join us next month when our theme will be Catalogue Recreations. In the meantime, I wish you a very 
Merry Christmas 
and a safe and happy New Year! See you in 2017!
