December Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars December Blog Hop.  Where did this year go?   If you just arrived from Krista's Blog then you are on the right track.  If not, it is a circular blog so you can start here and when you return to this page, you will have seen all the projects.  Today I am sharing a card using products from our new Seasonal Expression 1 Idea Book.  These new products are now available to purchase until March 31.  If you would like to see the new book, click HERE.  As an added bonus, CTMH will offer one free copy of Annual Inspirations and Seasonal Expressions 1 to everyone who places an order. This one-time bonus will be available to each customer who places an order between December 2, 2014 and January 31, 2015.

My card is made using the Heartstrings Paper Pack X7193B and The Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.
 It is the Pop-Up card on page 35 of the Artfully Sent booklet cut at 7".  
The inside of the Pop-Up card uses the Icon (Arrow) and Icon Shift (Heart) all cut at 7". Be sure to keep your machine set to "relative size" so all the pieces will be cut in proportion to the card.
The Happy Valentine's Day stamp is M1052 in Seasonal Expressions.
The front uses the Pocket Card function on page 36  of the booklet.  These cards were designed to fit in the Picture My Life or Project Life page protectors. But as you can see, they also work great for the front of cards and would be great as a child's valentine swap card.  The heart is cut out and backed with Pink Glitter Paper (Z1922) and there is a strip of the same glitter paper with edge scalloped using the Scallop Border Punch (Z1851). 

Now it is time to hop to  Marie's Blog to see her creation.  Happy Hopping!  Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season with your friends and family!
