HO HO HO!  Welcome to The Brae-er's November Team Blog Hop. This month, we're focusing on "Holidays", especially since the festive season is just around the corner!

As you hop along to all the different blogs, you will see creations from our CTMH team showcasing stamp sets, patterned paper, inks, embellishments and more from the Close To My Heart Autumn Idea book and new mini Holiday Guide. Thanks in advance for taking the time to hop along.  Now, onto the creative stuff!

This is a circular hop.   If you came from Brae's "The Brae-er" blog, you're going in the right direction.  Just keep hopping along and see some amazing artwork.  Soon, you'll make it all the way around to each Brae-er's Team members blog.

My Project:  Slider Cards

When I was looking for different formats to use in my gift card holder workshop, I came across the Paper Garden Projects blog, featuring the instructions for a slider card.  It was so cute, and the instructions were so well written, I had to try it out.

Here is the card we made at my workshop.  It is very closely inspired by the original card in the instructions.  I added a pocket inside the slider to hold the gift card.

This card features the following products:
  • Stamp Sets:  Polar Bear Holiday, Christmas Village
  • Ink:  Slate, Twilight
  • Frosted B&T Paper
  • CTMH Cardstock:  Slate, Champagne and White Daisy
  • Twilight marker
  • Stardust glitter gel

With the second card, I got a bit more adventurous.

This card features the following products:
  • Stamp Sets:  Santa Claus, Christmas Village
  • Ink:  Slate, Black, Ruby, White Daisy
  • CTMH Cardstock:  Kraft, Black, Ruby and White Daisy
  • Grey copic markers
  • Stardust and red glitter gel

Keep on Hopping!
Your next stop on the hop is "Crafty Corina's" blog. 

After looking at each person's stunning creations, please take a moment to leave a comment or two at the bottom.  We really love feedback from our blog viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do.  By leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see.

Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire some festive feelings and give you some ideas to get creative using CTMH products.


  1. Cute!! I may have to try one for myself!

  2. Love your cards especially the second one! May have to lift that idea. Great work Sheri...keep on inspiring us!!

  3. Wow - those are great! How delightful to receive a card like that! Great Job!

  4. I love the 2nd one! I usually give a gift card to my SIL and daughter so thanks for the link to the tutorial. It would be easy enough to make an envelope for the gift card.
