Echo Park Paper "Holly Jolly Holidays" Blog Hop

NOTE: This is my second post for today. If you missed the first, check it out below. Both have great blog candy!



Hello! Welcome to the Echo Park Paper "Holly Jolly Holidays" Blog Hop! We've created a special one-day blog hop event in which you can hop from one designer's blog to the next viewing beautiful holiday cards. Be sure to follow the blog hop list below and leave a comment on each person's blog. Finish up at the Echo Park Paper blog with a final comment. THREE winners will selected to win a collection kit of their choosing. Comments can be made through midnight MST today for a chance to win! Winners will be announced on December 8 on the Echo Park Paper blog.


Here is the list of the designers who are participating in the hop:






Carolyn King <-- You are here!








I created two new cards for the hop and also posted my favorite Echo Park Christmas card.

My first two cards use the Winter Park Collection. The first focuses on the little snowman element sticker. I added a few details and some stitching but pretty straightforward:
......and another. For this one, I hand cut the houses out from the patterned paper. Then, I cut out an extra one and popped it up over the original for some dimension. I did this with a few of the trees too:
And here is one of my favorite cards, which uses the Season's Greetings Collection:
Enjoy the hop! Don't forget to leave comments along the way for your chance to win!

Thanks for "hopping" by!
