November blog hop

Welcome to our monthly blog hop.  
Simply hop from one blog to the next and see what all the talented gals have created.  My share is using Flower Market Cricut cartridge and Oh Deer paper and my favorite stamp set Perfectly Pine A1191.  
The card is folded back to make it look like a swing card.  I used glitter paper to cut out the words and to back the piece that is attached to the card.  

 On this card I used All about Gold Z3246 Fundamentals for the striped piece, this comes with 6  12x12 overlays with gold foil designs.   I fastened that piece with the shimmer trim.  The colors I used were Chocolate, Fern, Sea Glass.
I don't have a picture to show you, but when you open the card, I stamped another pine sprig and pine cone on the inside with words from the stamp set that comes with the Flower Market cartridge.  

Please hop to my friend Krista's blog and be amazed at everyone's creation. 
Here is the rotation in case you get lost.  Enjoy!

Christmas tree card

I am trying to make a video on how to make the all time favorite card and I can't get it to work at the moment.  If some reason this does work, this is just my practice draft.  
Here are the written directions in the meantime. 
Start with squares on printed paper, what I call background texture paper, in sizes 
3", 2 1/2", 2" and 1 1/2"  
Fold your square point to point
Open it up and fold it point to point with the other points
Flip it over
Fold it in half (now this is where the video would come in handy)
Push your finger in the center of the square and you will see how it wants to fold into a triangle
with the triangle point up, take the top left flap and fold it to the center. Do the same thing with the right flap.  Now do this to all four squares.  Stack them starting at the top with the smallest one. They will go inside half way, just glue the back of the triangle.  Add a star and a trunk if you wish.  
I will add to this when I get a moment. 
Hope this helps.

I used City Sidewalk paper from CTMH
