Holiday Cards & More 12 Blogs of Christmas Blog Hop!

Welcome to Paper Crafts Magazine Holidays Cards & More, Vol. 7 Blog Hop. I am honored to be part of this blog hop together with 11 others designer. For today's post, we were asked to create a holiday card using sentiment from this issue. You can download the sentiment here.
I am a sentiment geek and today's card show case using print sentiment :) It is important to have the right sentiment selection to match the theme/feels/ style of the card. I've chose this elegant "Deck the Halls" sentiment to work with.
To create this card, I first print the sentiment on card stock then apply die cut ornaments on card.
I hope today's post inspired you a little of card making in using printed sentiment. Before you leave, please continue visit the following designer's blog for more inspirations as well as increase your chances in winning a copy of Holidays Cards & More, Vol. 7 magazine.
In addition, by leaving a comment on this post, you will get a chance to win a copy of the magazine. All comments must be posted until Tuesday, September 25th and I will pick a winner to receive a copy of the magazine. Thanks for stopping by!
