Hey there, my lovely crafty pals. I am here again with my DT creation for the latest Fab 'n' Funky challenge. You know we have a mission to help you reach your quota of Christmas cards by giving you a monthly challenge to join in with them and it's 'that' time again. So we want to see you pulling out your tinsel, glitter and baubles and Christmas crafting along with us. Ginny is our lovely hostess this challenge and has the joy of choosing the Top 3. Our sponsor this challenge is the wonderful Bunny Zoe's Crafts, so the winner is in for a fabulous treat.
I have wanted to do a Christmas card with this cute pair ever since I first saw them on one of my lovely craft buddies blog. They are just too dang cute and with that sentiment, it's a really fun Christmas card. You can see the cards that inspired me here and here. Thanks Nic, you're a constant source of inspiration! x
I used lots of glitter on this card but in small touches. On the star, tree baubles, her dress, her scrunchy and the Memory Box Precious Stars. You really need to get up close and personal with this card to see the details.
I've use a Whimsy Stamps Corner die and added a pearl. I added pearls to the Memory Box Precious Stars dies too. I edged most of the papers with dark green ink and of course, my image is coloured with my trusty Promarkers. The sentiment and the sweet image are both from Stampendous and you can find them here. The image is called 'Tree Trim Kiddos'. Though you'll note I've coloured them up as grey haired elves! LOL.
I hope you'll come join in the Christmas fun at Fab 'n' Funky this week. I'm so in the right mood for it, as it's dead of Winter here and feeling like Christmas 'should' be just around the corner. (We loved our 'Winter Christmas Years' in the UK). Thanks for popping in to visit my blog today and I'll be back again really soon with another crafty adventure. Hugs, Wends x
