Stamp of the Month Blog Hop -- October: Twinkle

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Chris Robertson, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

The month's featured stamp set is S1510 Twinkle (pictured below).  This set is only available until October 31st and is only $5 with a $50 Close to My Heart purchase.

For today's project, I made a double gate-fold Christmas card.  I recently saw a tutorial for this card style on YouTube and knew I had to try it!  It was so fun!  The only thing I would do differently is use a piece of B&T double-sided cardstock for the base instead of a solid piece of cardstock.  I chose to use a Colonial White card base and had to make extra cuts / measurements for the Cranberry and White Pines layers.  By using double-sided B&T, you could save this step.

Supplies used:
*Twinkle stamp set -- October SOTM
*Artiste Cricut Collection
*White Pines paper packet
*12" x 12" Cranberry cardstock
*12" x 12" Cocoa cardstock
*12" x 12" Colonial White cardstock
12" x 12" Fern cardstock
*Cranberry Exclusive Inks stamp pad
