Rubbernecker Sisters Holiday Blog Hop!

First a Note from Jacquie with all the details you need to know!

Hello Rubbernecker Sisters!! HOP day has arrived!! The Stampin’ Sisterhood has LOTS to share today!! Thank you SO much for joining us! 

We thought it would be a GREAT idea to share some of our HOLIDAY images!! SO, sit back and ENJOY!!! Hey, and if you leave some LOVE at EVERY stop along the way? You will be entered into a RANDOM drawing for your choice of ONE Rubbernecker Stamp SET!!  A SET, not just one stamp!! Now, how AWESOME is that?! Mr. Rubbernecker wants YOU to be able to choose, so you will LOVE what you get!! BRILLIANT!!


OH, and if you want to join in the sharing? We will be starting some AWESOME Rubbernecker challenges on SUNDAY 11/20!! Hope you will join us for SISTERHOOD SUNDAYS!! We are going to have a BLAST!! Who knows? You could win a prize on SUNDAYS too!!!

Now that we've gotten all that info out of the way -  here is my project for the hop - 4 Christmas cards and a coordinating gift bag!  I got the bag at CVS.
I embossed each tree with either gold or silver embossing powder - then embossed the ornaments with gold if it was a silver tree and silver if it was a gold tree!  
I layered each image to a metallic gold card stock panel, accept for the bag where I used silver since the big eyelet on the bag was silver.

If the ornament stamp included a star - I did the tree in silver and the ornaments in gold.

When the tree stamp included the star - I embossed the tree in gold and the ornaments in silver.
 I used the stamps from  2 Part Christmas Tree Set #598 for my projects today.  The white and Enchanted Evening  card stocks are from Papertrey Ink, the gold metallic paper is from Mark's Finest Papers and the silver (framing the image on the bag) is Metallic by Grafix.
On the inside I gold embossed this lovely font Merry Christmas #387-10.  The gold and silver makes these cards quite elegant don't you think?!
These cards worked up really quickly  - just what we need during this busy holiday season when we want to make our cards but don't have a lot of time, right??!

Now - here are the links to all of the Design Team Members where you will find much more holiday inspiration!!   - remember to leave a comment at each stop for your chance to win!

You have until Thursday 11/17 to HOP! Our winner will be announced on the RUBBERNECKER BLOG, on Friday  11/18!!
