Crafty Cardmakers 9th Challenge

It's the 9th Challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and Vix set the DT a great challenge to either use a non-traditional stamp and colour it using red and green or use non-traditional colours on a Christmas image. Well I think it is easy to see which one I opted for :)

The base of card is an A4 sheet folded in half. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Rose Tinted Christmas stack.

Stamped image is Penny Black coloured in with Promarkers, fur trims are Woodware fluffy stuff covered with glitter and heat embossed so it puffs up. Image has been cut out using my new Nestabilities die set and matted onto metallic card. The whole image is mounted onto 3D foam.

A second strip of card was punched using the Fiskars scallop edge border punch and the bobble trim is from Doodlebug. Added embellishments are Craftime glittered snowflakes and pink gems from Paperchase.

I used the card sketch for Day 274 at 365 Cards as the inspiration for the main layout of the card, adding the extra strip at the bottom because Iove the bobble trim so much, I mean who can resist a row of perfect little snowballs. I have th4e perfect recipient in mind for this sassy likkle card and she will love it.

Really looking forward to seeing the cards submitted for this challenge and hoping to see so interesting colour combinations. Come on over and join the fun at Crafty Cardmakers
