November Blog Hop

Our goal this month was to post cards/tags that can be made in under 10 minutes - now that is my kind of project!!! Both of my cards that I have posted here are very quick, easy and of course cute!!!
The first one I used gold shimmer cardstock from Archivers ran through my cuttlebug with the music embossing folder. I used the Oh Holy Night from the Good Tidings set embossed in gold, punched with scallop circle and pop dots to raise it off the music a bit. A simple gold sheer bow (using the bow easy) just made this card complete.
My second card is a fun one and can be adapted for any occasion. I used an 8 1/2 x 11 scarlet cs cut at 4 1/4 scored and folded in half. I then cut a piece of Reece DP (has such a Christmas look) to 4 1/2 x 4 and glued on the front right of the card. I used a 1 1/2 inch circle punch and punched through both the DP and red cs,leaving a viewing circle. I punched a 1 1/4 circle from white and stamped this cute little snow girl (this was a LE from several years ago) and colored her very quickly with copic markers. Again tied a red sheer ribon around the front and then for my embellishments I used the little dots at the bottom of the 12 x 12 DP punched and glued on the side with just a nailhead on top. Again an easy peasy but cute card. You can use a snowflake punched out of glitter cardstock in the opening for another quickie.
Now hop on over and see what the other girls have made for their 10 min. and under collection.
