Festive Friday Blog Hop: October Edition

Welcome once again to the Festive Friday blog hop! On one Friday each month through December, you can hop through our blogs to holiday cards, layouts or home decor items using the amazing new products. I hope you enjoy this paper "eye candy"! Just one more reason to love Fridays!

Follow these links if you missed my earlier posts:

- September Post

If you came here from Diane's blog, The Happy Scrapbooker, then you are on the right track. Your hopping path is circular and you will visit each of us by following the links.

This month, I've made this Nativity easel card.

Here's a look at the front of the card when it is closed.

The card opens from the bottom. Here's what you find on the inside. 

The papers at the bottom of the inside allow the card to stay open when you stand it up.

Here's a side view of the card when it is standing.

Silver Glimmer Trim (Z1799)

To make this card, I used Beate's directions found HERE.

Be sure to check back on November 15 for our next installment of the Festive Friday Blog Hop. But for now hop on over to Michelle's Wandering Scissors blog, your next stop in today's hop.

Keep Creating!
