For folks new to “blog hopping”, this is an activity where a bunch of like-minded folks get together and blog about the same subject on the same day. Then everyone else (that’s you) ‘hops’ from blog to blog to see how each author interprets the subject of the day.
In this case, the subject is Club Scrap’s annual holiday paper-crafting (and digital scrapbooking) collection called Watercolor Christmas.
So, here we go . . . on with the hopping!
There’s still time to get those holiday cards in the mail to friends and family.
If you’d like to add a homemade touch to your holiday card giving, try this quick and easy project.
This beautiful artwork was painted by the super talented Swarup Murthy. Visit her blog and store HERE. Club Scrap’s owner Tricia Morris shares more about Swarup HERE.

2. Trim one Black 8.5×11” craft paper into two 5.5×8.5” panels. Score and fold both in half to make two card bases.
3. Print cards.pdf (from the downloaded file) on one White 8.5×11” craft paper and trim individual art panels from the page.
4. Print cards2.pdf (from the downloaded file) on the other White 8.5×11” craft paper and trim two white panels.

Hints and Tricks:
Add a couple A2-sized envelopes from your stash and mail these beauties away to lucky friends and family. Or, skip the envelopes and attach the cards to hand-delivered presents.
Rinse and repeat as many times as needed to fill your card-giving santa bag.
