Welcome to the Monday Montage Blog Hop.  I’m so excited that the Design Team Finalists will be continuing a blog hop every other Monday.

Today I’m showing you Christmas card.  I know you must be thinking but it’s only August, however, I start designing holiday projects in early July or August.  Past experience has shown me if I don’t start early, then it never gets made.

Special Season Christmas Card

Special Season Card Inside

The tree image on the front of this card is from the Special Season stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.  I stamped it on Brushed Silver card stock, and then embossed it with Silver embossing powder.  This card is stunning in person.  The picture really doesn’t do it justice.  For the inside of the card I used Ornament Keepsakes and More Merry Messages. These two sets are on the carry over list that aren’t shown in the current catalog.

If you came here from Dani’s blog or started here, then be sure to click next to check out Elizabeth’s post and make the full loop through the blog hop.
