More is Better On a Card (Blog Hop)

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Pile It On” – showcasing their card/project with layers of DSP and/or embellishments for any occasion. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.


The other day I heard an old song “All I want for Christmas is a Hippomatus.” Well, I didn’t do a Christmas card, but I did do a Birthday card.  I suppose you could change the colors and words to make a Christmas card. Maybe you better remove the balloons too.  Anyway, the theme is to pile on the layers or embellishments.  I think I accomplished it with the Stitched Triangles and the shapes in the Hippo and Friends Dies. It is nice when we can use a Bundle.
