Damask Divas - Yuletide Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas' November Blog Hop featuring the Yuletide Carol paper pack from Close to My Heart!  We have some fun, festive projects lined up for you.  I hope you'll hop with us to the end.  If you get lost along the way, there is a full list of participants on the Damask Divas’ blog!

Yuletide Carol Paper Packet
includes 6 – 12" × 12" B&T Duos™ Papers (2 each of 3 double-sided designs - shown above) and 
6 – 12" × 12" Cardstock Sheets (2 Black, 2 Champagne, 1 New England Ivy, 1 Ruby)

For today's project, I made a quick 6-card set using just 3 - 6" x 6" pieces of the Yuletide Carol B&T along with 6 A2-sized card bases and some Colonial White scraps for the sentiment cutouts.  I found the cutting template online somewhere and wish I could remember where b/c I love how these cards turned out!

And because no scrap is left behind, I used the leftover little strips to make this super cute bonus mini 3x3 card.

Supplies used:

Thank you for visiting me at JD Designs and for hopping with us on the Damask Divas September Blog Hop!   Next up on the hop is Felicia Tortorici.  I hope you'll head on over to her blog as she has a great project lined up for you, too.  Remember if you get lost along the way remember there is a full list of participants on the Damask Divas’ blog!
