It's time for the November Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge!
Today's challenge is to create something with PTI products, getting inspiration from the photo above. I was inspired by the colors (mostly the red and white, plus the brown of the stairs), the wooden bannister and the hanging ice-skates.
The base of my card is made from 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" Rustic White cardstock, scored at 4 1/4". The Pure Poppy layer is a 4" square, and the kraft layer is a 3 3/4" square. I stamped the kraft layer with text from PTI's Background Basics: Christmas stamp set and inked around the edges. Instead of ice-skates, I used hanging mittens cut with felt with a PTI Love Lives Here: Holiday die. I attached them with a brad and twine to a strip of Rustic White cardstock that I had stamped with a sentiment from Love Lives Here: Holiday, ran through my Cuttlebug with the PTI Woodgrain Embossing Plate, and popped up with some dimensionals.
I added more Pure Poppy & Rustic White squares for the inside of the card and stamped a sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Holiday.
