Cute Christmas FlowerSoft Blog Hop!

Happy November 1st to you! Yes...Christmas is next month! It doesn't seem possible but here we are! And it's our grandson's first Christmas too! Super excited I am...not only for the holiday season but to have the opportunity to work with Flower Soft and their super talented design team! Today is Flower Soft's design team Blog Hop and blog candy waiting for you too!
Now onto my creation! Have you seen Flower Soft's card toppers? For today's project, I used the "Cute Christmas - I Love Santa topper set. A two window frame is perfect for the Santa design on the left side, and a photo space on the right for our grandson's first Christmas photo! (photo yet to be taken, of course!)
You can see in this photo the faint pencil line to trim down the topper to fit the frame opening. This left the little bear from the decoupage sheet, so I added him onto the frame! So cute!!! Flower Soft card topper packs come in two designs, with their own decoupage sheet that creates stunning dimension. Use Flower Soft glue, add a sprinkle of your favorite Flower Soft, and just look at the cuteness!
Polar White Flower Soft is perfect for Santa's fur and mustache! A little on the stocking fur, red Flower Soft to Rudolph's nose and the mantle bow create loads of dimension! So fun! Here is what the card topper packet looks like, along with the glue and container of Polar White Flower Soft! Sorry forgot the red color...same container, just different color! To make the frame creation even more memorable, I chose to create a tag with my JustRite Times New Roman Upper and Lowercase Fonts. 2009 is 95pt. font and is stamped with Memento London Fog ink. My First Christmas is 50pt. and stamped with VersaMagic Red Magic ink. Tag is cut using my Spellbinders Tags 5 die. After edging the tag sides, I added a loop of decorative ribbon from Michaels. The JustRite finishing touch creates such a great piece to remember the treasured memories! Be sure and check out these talented design team creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Take good care!
