Hi there crafty friends and thank you for joining us in this Holiday Blog Hop

next Christmas themed project.

You should have arrived here from Irit's lovely blog, if not, please start at the beginning at WorldWin, you don't want to miss out on any of the lovely inspiration!

------------------------

I have had such a lovely time working with WorldWin Papers!

I personally LOVE the Petallics!!

Ready for my inspiration?
I have 3 projects to share with you!

Firstly, I created this fun tea light card holder!
I just love this design!

For the main base I used WorldWin Cardstock in Kraft!

I used my favorite Petallics Cardstock in Snow Willow!
Just LOVE the smooth and sparkly paper!!

I also used a little some Original ColorMates Cardstock in Deep Belgium Blue!

I thought this was a perfect color pallet to use along with some of my favorite Inspired By Stamping sets!!
I LOVE snowflakes, so I used a combination of these lovely sets Winter Wonderland, December 25th Labels and Elegant Christmas Sentiments!

The "Warm Winter Wishes" sentiment is from the Winter Wonderland set!

For the tag, again I used my favorite snowflake from the Winter Wonderland set, as well as a sentiment from the Holiday Sentiments set!

Love the shimmer of the paper!!

-----

Again for this card, I used the Winter Wonderland for the tiny snowflake!

The sentiment is from the Elegant Christmas Sentiments set, such a lovely set with such beautiful sentiments for the holidays!

For my card base I used some lovely White Cardstock and then used some Kraft for the main layer, with a hint of Deep Racy Raspberry behind the Kraft snowflake!

Lastly, I have another lovely holiday card!
I just love how this one turned out!
So elegant!!
For the main card base I used Medium Berry Red!

The I embossed a piece of White Cardstock and Medium Berry Red, along with adding a scallop piece of Dark Spring Green!

I embossed a Festive Frame in white and a Elegant Christmas Sentiment in sparkly red on Vellum! With Dark Spring Green underneath and a scallop circle in Deep Emerald Isle

I thought it would be fun to stamp a few envelopes as well!!
How fun!
