White Pines Cards for the December 2015 Joyful Stars Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars Blog Hop for December!  If you have arrived here from Crystal's blog, you are on the right track.  If you get lost along the way, please go back to visit Joyce at Joyful Creations for the complete lineup.
Before I share my project with you, I wanted to share about my weekend.  I took a trip to King of Prussia, PA, to attend a Close To My Heart event.  Not only were the new products that we played with amazing, but I got to see so many friends, and I was able to get together with many of the girls from this blog hop.  We took a picture together that I would like to share.  Here we are!
I really, really enjoyed the event and meeting many of my long distance friends, both old and new.
So, onto the projects!  This month I created two cards with the CTMH White Pines Cardmaking Workshop on the Go.  I modified the cards a little to suit my style.  Each WOTG provides enough materials to make 15 cards, and even includes a stamp set.  Here are the cards that I made:
 I made only slight changes from the WOTG instructions, to create this card pictured above.
This card, however, got quite the makeover from the one in the instructions.  I used our CTMH Confetti Embossing Folder to create the snowy background on the cranberry cardstock.  I added a square of black cardstock to make the sentiment really stand out, and used the Scallop Border Punch to add detail to my fern cardstock.
I hope that you enjoyed my cards.  Please hop along to Lori's blog, Crafty Meadows, to see the wonderful project that she has created for you.  Until next month...
