Making Christmas Cards:)

This was the last card i made at Karens! The layout is a Karen original!! Isn't it great???

So for this card i used My Minds Eye Snow Funflakes paper. The base is PTI layers with kiwi Kiss. I put a peice of Baja Breeze through the snowflakes Cuttlebug folder for the botton. I tied some white polka dot ribbon with a layer of Lake ribbon (from the paper source) and tied it up.

I coloured the scarf, legs, snow and snowman nose with copics. The rest is paper peiced! (i know WWKD!!).

I cut out the matching paper with a nestie and just cut the image free hand.
The snowman was coloured with a gelly roll pen and then fun flocked on top:) Fun flock sure is fun!! I love the effect it has too! I used some Liquid Applicate for the boots and the bottom of the coat:)
I finished off the card with the martha stewart snowflake punch with a bella dot on top. I also used some smaller bella dots as well. This was my first attempt at a banner...Karen's are much better!! I will get it with practice:)
Well that is all my cards from Karen's!! It was a lot of fun for sure!! :) Now lets see how i do at taking pictures!!

  7. Isn't it weird to make Xmas cards in April ;-). I have joined a Christmas card all around the year-group on Papercraft Planet, in order to avoid all the stress with Xmas cards in Nov./December, but so far I couldn't get started ;-).
    Love your card! The MFT image is great and so are the colors!
