CFH Bloghop!

Hello! I have decided (last minute of course!) To join a blog hop from Cards For Heroes! So welcome, hoppers to my little blog about Scrap.

Here is a little Christmas Card that is easy to duplicate and sent to friends, family, or Any Hero!

You will need a card base, some white cardstock, some green floss, and some little christmas lights. I found these at Michael's. They are flat on the back, but there are several other varieties that are round... or you could even use little paper lights if you wanted to!



There are a ton of stitching templates out there that have a little curvy line like this. You could also free hand it. When it comes to a string of christmas lights, I suppose the messier the better. :) I stitched with green floss and was sure to add a light every inch or so. You could add as many lights as you want. . . the final step is to glue the stitched cardstock down onto the card base and add a sentiment. I added a "Merry Christmas" stamp, but you could use anything similar.

There you go! So much easier than hanging Christmas lights up on the house, don't you think? And nobody got hurt.

I am kind of new to Cards for Heroes but have had and currently have lots of friends in the service. I think that this is a fun way to show support and lift the spirits of those who really need it!

If you are interested in getting involved with Cards for Heroes be sure to check out their website and remember that NOVEMBER 1 is the deadline for sending in Christmas cards for this season, plenty of time to get those done!

This post is for the CFH BLOGHOP . . . I thank you for visiting and please add me if you like!

Hopping along, your next stop will be Midnight Crafting by Angie. . . sounds like something that would go along great with my night shift job don't you think?!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

It is a cute card. For last Christmas, I used a felt Christmas tree with a little bell hanging on the top and it turned out very well. I like to try this one.
