Cardz TV Design Team Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to Cardz TV Design Team's very first blog hop!!! I'm so excited that you have stopped by for a little visit. Now, if you arrived here from the awesome DeNetra's blog, you are in the right place. But if you just happened to stop by to see what I've been up to, well, Thank You!! I love it when you do!! Why don't you hop over to Mary's and start at the first of the hop!! We have two awesome sponsors. One is our wonderful leader Mary. She will be giving a Cricut Seasonal Cartridge-Gingerbread and a Cardz TV Holly Jolly Stamp set. Go here to check out all of Mary's stamp sets. They are fantastic!! I know you will love them as much as I do! Our other sponsor is Lynn. She has donated an adorable North Pole Collections paper kit from Crate Paper. In order to be entered to win, you will need to leave a comment at each of the design team members blogs. There is a list of all the hop stops at the end of my post. Now on to my project.
I made an A2 (4 1/4x5 1/2) size card. I used the Jolly Holidays cartridge. I cut the tag, layer and layer shift which is #49 on the overlay. I used my Gypsy Girl and hid the words, the berries-to get the tag and then the tag so I could get the berries the color that I wanted. I cut the tag at 2 1/2 inches and the holly and berries at 3 1/2 inches. The tag was cut using cardstock from Canvas Home Basis-Christmas Brights. The bg cardstock on my card is from Canvas Home Basis-Krafty Christmas. I cut 3 sets of the holly leaves and 4 sets of the berries. I popped up the holly on the front and coated the holly leaves and the berries in glossy accents. I used a piece of red tulle and tired a bow on the top of the tag. I then popped up the tag. The sentiment is from Mary's Home for Christmas stamp set. Your next stop is the awesome Candice's blog! Hope ya'll like my card. :)
Oh, how about some blog candy from me? Would ya'll like that? I haven't any idea what I'll give away yet, but I promise you won't be sorry if you win. I am also sorry about this, but due to the cost of postage, please have a U. S. or Canada address. You don't have to be a follower of my blog to win, but if you want to follow, I sure won't turn you away! You have until midnight, CST, Sunday, December 18th to enter. I will announce the winner the afternoon of Monday, December 19th.
Now here are the pictures of my card:
