Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop: Leftovers

Sunday, December 25, 2011

ETA: I guess I'm a day early...oops! Oh well! See you tomorrow for the Hop!



This month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop challenge is to use up those holiday leftovers! There is always tons of tissue paper leftover from wrapping and unwrapping gifts.  I used the washi tape technique to make the strips along the left side of the card. 


My cousin just told the family that she and her husband are expecting their first baby!  So I made this card for them!



Hope you are having a wonderful holiday full of family and friends!  I hope to pop in during the day to check out some projects, but probably won't comment until tomorrow since pretty soon I'll have a house full!



Cardstock: PTI Pure Poppy and White
Stamps: PTI Peaceful Poinsettia and Congrats All Ways
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy and Ripe Avocado, Memento Black
Other: Tissue Paper, Rhinestones
