Annual Inspirations New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the Annual Inspirations New Product Blog Hop!

We have over 50 Close To My Heart Independent Consultants participating in the New Product Blog Hop. If you arrived here from {{{ Morgan Vogt's blog }}} you are on the right track. If you are just joining us, that's fine too - just keep visiting the next blog until the circle brings you back here. If you get lost along the way the complete list of participating blogs is on {{{ Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It... }}}

The product I am sharing with you today is the CTMH Cut Above™ Holiday Card Kit (Z2065). I think people new to cardmaking or with limited space and supplies will enjoy this kit. This card is created as depicted in Annual Inspirations on page 160 using the suggested Ruby ink and Merriest Christmas stamp set.

CTMH Cut Above™ Holiday Card Kit 01

If you have the time and supplies you can make each card different. The card below was created by cutting a tag from Ruby cardstock using the Art Philosophy cartridge (image #M44E8F using the hide contour feature if you use Cricut® Design Space with the Explore; you can use any Cricut® machine with Cricut® Craft Room using hide contour to cut the tag). The tag is 2.37 inches wide and 3.12 inches high and layered behind the white tag included with the kit. I cut about one inch off the blue woodgrain cardstock so I could place the card fold at the top.

CTMH Cut Above™ Holiday Card Kit 02

This card was created by using the Be Jolly Hostess Rewards stamp set; if you would like to learn how you can get this stamp set, contact your CTMH Independent Consultant. You can select any CTMH stamp set that will fit the white tag which is 2 inches wide and 2.75 inches high.

For each card I cut one of the foam squares (included) into three pieces using the Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors. I wanted to be able to more evenly distribute the square under the tags. I also used Micro Glue Dots™ to attach the bow tied using Grey and White Baker's Twine (included) to the button then I used Memory Book Glue Dots™ to attach the button to the tag.
