Christmas In July blog hop - Day 3!

Welcome and thank you for joining us for the final day of our Christmas in July Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Chris' blog @ Get Inspired With Chatterscene . If you just happened to stumble upon this hop, please be sure to go back to Elaine's blog @ Expressions By Elaine so you don't miss any of the wonderful projects we have to share!

Be sure to visit & follow all the blogs to be entered for the Grand Prize, after you have stopped at all the blogs be sure to go back to the beginning blog Expressions By Elaine and leave your name in the inlinkz.

For my final project, I made a card using the traditional red and green!  :)  The paper was from the DCWV stack 'Holiday Collection: The Christmas Stack' once again, the card stock is from my stash.  The sentiment stamp is from Pink By Design 'Scripted Year' set.  The wreath is from the Christmas Solutions Cricut cartridge and the card base was embossed using the Sizzix 'Snow Flowers' embossing folder and my Cuttlebug.
I used my Gelly Roll 'Stardust' pen to outline the bow - I love these pens, they write so smooth and add subtle sparkle without being overwhelming!

  6. Very pretty Kimberli. Love that embossing; never heard of that folder before. What is your trick for keeping the ink in your Gelly Roll pen flowing? I have several white ones and they only work sporadically.--Pat N.
