Eskimo Kiss



Broken Box Stock has a challenge where you need to use the colours Red White & Blue and one of their digis. They are very generous with the amount of images they have for free and I thought it would be a great opportunity to make another Christmas card.

I coloured this lovely image called Eskimo Kiss with Promarkers & Flexmarkers keeping to shades of blue and of course adding red wellies and hearts.

I cut the image using a Nestabilities die and as I had used the largest size I drew around the die onto a scrap of blue marbled paper to create a mat for it.

The paper is a magazine freebie from Docrafts/Papermania and the colours are perfect for this challenge. The ribbon has been recycled from a new top I wore to work today for the 1st time. I cannot stand the ribbon loops so the always get cut off but don’t usually get used very often so that’s a good one for me J

The sentiment is from my stash mounted onto the blue paper again and I added some stickles glue to the snowflakes as I love a bit of twinkle on Christmas cards.

Materials Used in this card are as follows:-

Card Size – A6
Paper – Magazine Freebie by Papermania
Sentiment – from stash
Embellishments – Stickles Glue, thin ribbon recycled from a top
Tools – Nestabilities die, Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Techniques – Die cutting

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order):-

I'm glad I'm not the only one who cuts out all the ribbon loops from my tops to use on cards!!
