The Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to The Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop! The design team has created many beautiful projects for you to see as you visit each blog today.

Start at The Robin's Nest where the design team has linked their blogs. Make sure to stop by each of the blogs and leave a comment, follow each blog and follow the Robin's Nest blog. Robin's Nest is giving away a prize on each blog. It is a bottle of Christmas dew drops!

The Robin's Nest Christmas Collection is what I used to create my first project. It is a large tag, using Black and White Holly Glitter Cardstock, dew drops and a tree fussy cut from the Christmas Trees Glitter Cardstock. I used a #12 tag from Ranger with a piece of Robin's Nest ribbon tied at the top. A Kaisercraft deer, Tim Holtz star and punched glitter cardstock snowflakes finish the tag.

I also made a card to share today. I used papers, the snowman and glitter snowflakes from The Robin's Nest Winter Collection. I also used a punch from Kreaxions to make the opening on the card base and another of their punches to make the pretty leaves in the corners of the card.

To begin the snowman card, I used a white card base and cut the background from the Winter Snowflakes Cardstock. Next, I used Kreaxions punch #312 (along with positioning parts and template B) to make the opening. I tucked the glitter snowman behind the opening, leaving his hat on top. I outlined the hat with silver Stickles. Then I added two glitter snowflakes. The word Joy is from my stash. Finally, I used the leaves from Kreaxions punch #309 in the corners of the card and adhered mini dew drops to the centers.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoy The Robin's Nest Christmas Blog Hop!
