For this hop we are featuring the letter Y. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set, an embellishment or a style. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their Y element will be featured in their post.
If you came from the talented Diana Saunders at FarmerDi then you're on the right track!
For the letter Y, I decided to use both the Yuletide paper (X7187B) and the Yuletide Greetings stamp set (D1553) from Close to My Heart .
In the paper pack is this one sheet that just screamed to be used on Christmas cards. Here is how I divided it up.
You can easily make 10 unique card fronts from this one sheet. I chose to make 9 using little to no embellishments to let the paper speak for itself - just a sentiment and some ink. Below you will find four cards.

In the card above, I used New England Ivy green cardstock to mat the pattern paper and adhered them to the CTMH card base in Colonial, the creaminess adds to the vintage feel. There was just enough space at the top to stamp the sentiment Yuletide Greetings from the gorgeous stamp set.

In the card above, I used New England Ivy cardstock to mat the pattern paper and adhered them to the CTMH card base in Colonial. I distressed the card with ruby ink, and added 2 little sparkles (Z1752).
You can colour clear bling, using the ShinHan alcohol based markers. Here I used the colour Carmine (Z2448) for the perfect shade of red.
In the card above, I used Ruby red cardstock to mat the pattern paper and adhered them to the CTMH card base in Colonial. And at the bottom I stamped the sentiment - this one came from the versatile Holiday Tag stamp set (D1560).
