The Blog Hop is a great big circle. Start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way you’ll find a complete list of participating consultants here. You can use this list to pick up where you left off.

Let's get started!

Artfully Sent certainly includes many designs to help you quickly and easily create a beautiful card, but to be honest, it was the stamp sets that I was most excited about! One of them is nothing but sentiments, and I can always use a new sentiment set. Another one has elegant border frames. I chose to feature these two stamp sets rather than one of the new card patterns. 

My card still came together pretty fast even though I decided to create the frame for the sentiment by embossing it in gold. I thought the gold was perfect for a Christmas card and the Yuletide Carol papers.

Here is what I used. All products are Close to My Heart:

Z3017 Cricut® Artfully Sent Collection
X7187B Yuletide Carol Paper Packet
Z891 VersaMark™ Ink Pad
Z2066 Ranger™ Princess Gold Embossing Powder
Z2170 Ruby Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad
Z1848 Red Shimmer Trim
