Blog Hop: Christmas Treasures with TLC Creations

Hello there and a happy May 1st to you all.  Now while I realize that many of you are thinking warm thoughts of spring and wishes for warmer weather ahead once the summer comes, it is important to remember to get a head start on all those Christmas cards that you'll need by year's end.

In an effort to help inspire you, RhondaSue, one of the long standing members of the TLC Creations Design Team, has resurrected the special blog devoted to all things Christmas and TLC!

To kick start the 2016 Christmas creativity in each and every one of you, we are hosting a blog hop starting at Creating Christmas Treasures with TLC and ending at Paulette's personal blog at Create with TLC. 

Each of us on the Create with TLC Design Team will be hosting a spot during the blog hop. All of us will share a creation that we have made using at least one if not more of Paulette's elements from years past and just YOUR luck, the image that we all use will be available for free download on each blog hop stop along the way!

You should have arrived here from the talented Karen's blog.  If you are just starting, you can find a full list of all the hop stops at the bottom of this post.

For my card, I got to use the pretty Christmas Roses image you see below; so, be sure to head on over to Paulette's BLOG and leave her some love if you grab it!
To save image, left click to bring it up in the lightbox in its full size and then right click and scroll down to 'save image as'.

Time to check out the card I created...

General Information:
  • This card was created 100% digitally and then layered in a poster mockup designed by Design Bolts

 Digital Image Details: 
  • Christmas Rose 2:  As mentioned previously, the image used on the front is the freebie that Paulette is allowing me to offer up on my blog.  You can grab it above. 

Digital Embellishments:

Digital Sentiment Details:
  • Another great image created by Paulette.

Digital Embellishments: 

Digital Embellishments:
  • The shadows to give each element some depth were created with a layer style, from Sheila Reid, also with Pixel Scrapper.
Digital Paper Products:
  • The paper I used is from the Christmas Roses set, also created by Paulette.

    Lisa this is wonderful, love the rose and how you have displayed it with the pretty rose paper. The sentiment would be fabulous hung on a wall like that.
