PTI November Blog Hop...

Hey friends!  Hope everyone in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Mine was awesome!  My great nephew Max was born on Thanksgiving day and I got to meet him that afternoon!  He is ADORABLE!!   Anyway... a quick post of a card for this month's PTI blog hop.  It is a fun inspiration photo featuring candy canes and lollipops.  I don't have anything remotely like that in my PTI stash so I focused on the red, white and light blue colors from the photo.  There is absolutely no stamping on this card... all die cutting!  I used the Bold Borders Yuletide die for the card.  I simply die cut the main die from red and white cardstock and adhered them together.  The Be Merry was die cut from Spring Rain cardstock three times and adhered together.  I adhered the frame to my cardstock base with glue, popped up the red panel with foam tape and then adhered the sentiment.  Super simple, but I like it!  Think I will also add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.


Hope you have a wonderful day and happy hopping!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Real Red, MFT white, PTI Spring Rain; Dies:  PaperTrey Ink
