Welcome to TaDa Creative Studios’ After The Holidays Blog Hop!

TaDa Creative Studios is excited to sponsor its first blog hop ever! Throughout the Hop, we will be featuring projects from our most recent collections – Jolly Holly Days, Big Top, and Bountiful Blooms. We hope that you enjoy reviewing all the projects just as we enjoyed created them for you!

I'd like to share a holiday card I created last month with the Jolly Holly Days Collection. For a cookie exchange gathering, I thought I would make a HUGE card for the hostess to display on her front hall table. It made a HUGE first impression when entering her home! LOL!!

I started by cutting and embossing the card base from Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities - LOVED how this turned out! The card base was cut/embossed with the LF-124 Grand Scalloped Circles using the Cookie Exchange paper. The circles I cut and embossed are various sizes of the LF-114 Grand Circles and two were cut with Creative Memories Cutting System. Also pictured are my other supplies...

After scoring about 1" from the top of the back card base, I adhered with Zip Dry and attached to the back of the front card base to form a shaped card.

Next, I cut out the journal box from the Jolly Holly Snippets & Clippets paper and put the party information inside the card. "Join Us" sticker letters were added to the top. Using the images from the Ginger & Lace paper, I cut them out for embellishments around the journal box and used glitter glue to make them into sugar cookies. Once dried, I adhered with foam tape to give dimension.

Here's a second look at the completed card...

I had so much FUN creating from this collection - so many colors and fun images that the ideas just come out when looking at the papers!
