Avery Elle Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Avery Elle blog hop! I'm excited to share one of the new sets being released! You won't want to miss out on all of the other inspiration so after you check out this card, hop on over to see what Elena Roussakis made!

Today I'm featuring Sledding Critters! These are the critters you've come to love over the last several releases and now they are all jam packed in an adorable sled. 


I love this stamp because it really makes the whole card for you. I stamped, colored and die cut the image. Next, I lightly inked the sledding hill with Distress Inks. 


I cut a piece of black card stock and embossed a sentiment from the set. Adding two pieces of black card stock on either side, with a little flag cut on the ends makes a quick and easy DIY banner. 


I finished the card with sequins and mounted it on some patterned paper.

Here are all the hop details!
