Reverse Confetti December Blog Hop



It’s the 8th of the month –Blog Hop time from REVERSE CONFETTI! Last month’s release was full of holiday magic as well as some gorgeous everyday sentiments. As we look forward to the holidays, it’s now time to start thinking of those small gifts, tags, treats, or just sweet notes of encouragement to spread the “Merry” to our friends, family and coworkers. The Confetti Crew and a few other pals have designed some great cards and projects to give you just the creative spark you’ll need to make some of your very own RC magic happen!



The hop started over on the Reverse Confetti blog, and you should have made it here from Angelica Suarez's blog. It would be worth your while to start at the beginning of the hop, so you don’t miss a thing. We have tons of inspiration for you to see using all of Reverse Confetti’s amazing stamp sets!

For today's card, I combined two of the newest stamp sets: Bring on the Merry and Be A Barista.I also used the larger Tag Me die on the Merry Christmas sentiment panel (I just trimmed off the top). The papers are from Pink Paislee's City Sidewalks line.



 It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the snowflakes are actually rusted metal snowflakes that I "frosted" with some Frosted Lace Stickles. I also added a snowy look around the edges of the panels using some Martha Stewart glitter.



The layout is this month's Sketch For You To Try:
