Kre8tors Blog Hop December 2020 Holiday

Hello everyone! Welcome to a special pop-up edition of the Kre8tors Blog Hop! So glad you could join us for this month’s hop. As the founder of the Kre8tors Blog Hop, I needed to take a little time off to realign my life’s priorities and take care of some personal matters. Now that I’ve had a few months to do just that, I wanted to have a pop-up hop this month to get back in the swing of things! And very possibly continue the hop regularly into 2021, but time will tell if that will become a reality. So make sure you follow along with your favorite demo for updates!

So, in the meantime, I hope you are enjoying your holidays this year! I hope you are all staying safe! And here is a little Holiday inspiration to hopefully help you get through the last week before Christmas!

I made three super simple cards for my Christmas cards this year. I wanted to be able to produce a lot of them in a short period of time AND I wanted to be able to mail them easily without having to be hand canceled. So I made them as flat as possible. You could definitely step these up with some dimensionals and other embellishments.

The first card features a retired Santa image, but any image could be put there to add a little something extra to the star of this card, the DSP! This specialty DSP is so incredibly fun with the different North Pole ads. Each card is unique if you use these ads to cut out and frame with decorative DSP as I’ve done here.

The second card features the bells stamped and embossed in gold, with some greenery behind it and a strip of gauze ribbon. I really like the simplicity and minimalist style of this card with the sentiment stamped below. I think the DSP helps set off the gold bells.

And lastly, we have the most simple of them all. I cut a strip of DSP to adhere to the card, trimmed the edges flush, then added my sentiment that was cut using a die cut from the Tasteful Labels Dies. I used some gold cording to tie the bells together and then adhered them with Stampin’ Seal to the DSP.

Here’s a quick little video showing how simple these cards are to assemble once all of the pieces are stamped and cut. My mother and I put a few kits together to give to my grandmother so that we could all assemble the cards together in a ZOOM meeting. Even though we weren’t in the same room, we still had a great time crafting together!
