Close To My Heart Christmas Card Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop where we are featuring handmade Christmas cards made with Close To My Heart products.

If you are coming from Brenda's Blog, you are on the right track. This hop is a circle so be sure to follow the link below to continue viewing our Christmas creations.
I decided to use this "Gingerbread Friends" stamp set. Isn't it adorable? Do you see all the fun little pieces and parts to dress up your friends? TOO FUN!
Many years ago I created a slider card for Christmas. It was fun and so I decided to bring it out again this year.  A banner, some red gems, and a bow and we have a cute card!
This is a very simple interactive card that just puts a different twist on Christmas cards. I can see putting a pocket inside that would hold a gift card. Hmmm... I might have to try that out.

If you want to know how to make this card, watch the video below which contains dimensions for recreation. And sure to share what you create. I'd love to see it!
