PSA Essentials & Cottage Cuz - Holiday Card Blog Hop – 12/2 – 12/4

Welcome to the PSA Essentials & Cottage Cuz blog hop! If you're coming by via Cheryl Walker's blog you're on the right track. If not make sure you start at the beginning over K Created by Kay so you don't miss any amazing projects.

Every year I like creating handmade Christmas cards for my friends and family. This year I am giving this cute Hello Kitty card to my closest girlfriends. It's whimsical and festive for the Holiday Season.

I used the PSA Hello Kitty Peel & Stick stamp set. I used a red card stock for the card and used my Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder to create a nice textured background. Then I layered it with a green plaid paper and enhanced the edge by punching a decorative design using Martha Stewart's Doily Lace Edge Puncher. I also added a shimmery chocolate brown ribbon.

Using a 1-3/8" circle puncher for the inner circle and stamp the Hello Kitty image and add some color. Glue the image on the scalloped circle and place on top of the card.

This is such a cute and unique card that will surely bring a smile to my girls.
