Creative Cuts & More A Very Merry Caardvarks Holiday Hop Day 1

How exciting!! It is the first of the three day Creative Cuts & More A Very Merry Caardvarks Holiday Hop. If you didn't come from Sue-Anne's blog, be sure to start at the beginning HERE for a chance to win some prizes and to check out all the details. As a new member of the Caardvarks Crew, this is my first chance to get to share some projects with the new and very creative Caardvarks design team members as well as the Creative Cuts & More design team. The theme is holiday to help you get a jump start on your holiday cards and projects.

I had lots of fun creating projects with these great cuts from Creative Cuts & More. For the first day, we are creating holiday cards. My card is the picture frame fold-up card. I also used the picture frame fold-up envelope and a snowflake to decorate the envelope.

I used a blanket stitch for the inside of the window on the card.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Now on to the rest of the blog hop.....Here is the blog hop list:
