Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

It's the 25th, which means that there are two months left until Christmas.
Have you started your shopping yet?

It also means that today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. :)


This month's challenge is an inspirational photo:


I was inspired by the tags and the greenery on the tags. 
I also love the woodgrain background!
I decided to use my brand new Holiday Folk mini-kit to make my card...


I started by running some soft stone cardstock through my Big Shot with my 
woodgrain impression plate.
I diecut three Fillable Frames #10 tags from some white linen cardstock.
I diecut the tree from a printable in the kit and stamped
the other two tags with stamps from the Holiday Folk stamp set.


I added some pure poppy tag toppers, some button twine
and a stamped/diecut banner from Tinsel & Tags.

Thanks for looking!

Your tag trio card is just lovely Leigh! Have that kit and have not done anything with it yet, but your card is definitely making me think I need to get that out right away and get stamping! And I have done a tiny bit of shopping, but mostly stocking stuffer items...guess I need to get busy with that too! :0)
