Papertrey Ink "Red and Green" Hop


At Papertrey Ink this month, the theme was to be inspired by this beautiful photo of Christmas items and colors.

I used images from two older sets, Holiday Button Bits (one of my most used sets of all time) and Love Lives Here: Christmas.


I used the ornament strings and sentiments from Holiday Button Bits, and the pine bough and berries from Love Lives Here: Christmas.

 Instead of buttons, I used sequins and gems for the ornaments to make them shiny like in the photo and I glossed up the berries, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is such a cute, cute card! Absolutely love the idea of using a sequin rather than a button for those adorable little ornaments. And love your plaid background too...everything just "pops" on this card! Love it!! :0)
