It's the most wonderful time of the year!

48 days and 3 hours until Christmas
and time for a new challenge with us on the
As always, the challenge is Anything Goes.


The sponsors for this challenge are:

Cute As A Button


Today I have used the Reindeer Ears Costume digital stamp from Cute As A Button, one of our generous sponsors for this challenge, to make a pair of Christmas cards.  Don't know if it's just me, but the round panel card reminds me of a snowglobe, the other card looks like a Christmas polaroid for a family Christmas card.

I opened the image in Silhouette Studio and designed my cards with the aid of some sketches (details and links HERE & HERE).  The images are 3 1/2" high, the completed cards 5" x 7".

This post is to about this card.

I printed the image on X-Press It blending card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.

I trimmed the image panel down to size with a craft knife.
I printed and cut the sentiment panel with my Cameo then manually cut the contrasting strips and card base.

You can read all about the other card HERE or by clicking on the photo below


NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
