Welcome to the Roxybonds scrappers team blog hop

Welcome to the Roxybonds scrappers team blog hop. We will be featuring artwork from the pear and partridge paper pack. If you have come here from then you are on the right path. Your next stop will be

Today I created two cards using the pear and partridge workshop on the go kit. Both are size A2 cards. I also used the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge for the tag and banners. Let's talk about the first card. The ink pads that I used were hollyhock, olive and cocoa. I started with a standard A2 card base then, I cut the tag from the Art Philosophy cartridge at 3.50 using the colonial white paper and stamped the tree using the olive ink, inked the edges using hollyhock stamp pad and a sponge. I also stamped another tree in hollyhock ink and trimmed off the star then popped it up on a pop dot and adhered it to the tree. I went over it with a jelly roll clear star pen to give it some sparkle. To add some extra sparkle I used my jelly roll pen to create garland on the tree and just added some bling that was included in the WOTG kit. Next, I cut the banners at 1 inch using the AP cartridge. I trimmed them down to a height I was comfortable with. Next I stamped a boarder using the hollyhock ink pad on the colonial white card stock. I added some Jute twine to the tag. The sentiment reads "I'll never forget this Christmas..", which is a stamp that is included in the WOTG kit.

For card number 2 I used the same card base and stamped the sentiment "The Best Gift: Family" on white colonial card stock and popped it up using pop dots. I stamped a side boarder using one of the swirl stamps included in the WOTG kit. Added bling and it's a wrap.
