Have A Very Merry Christmas

Happy Monday! I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is this week. This year is slipping by so quickly. I'm in Christmas card mode for the rest of the month and still have quite a few I have to make before I get mine mailed out. I saw the current sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps weekly challenge and was inspired! I had just picked up the October issue of Cardmaking & Papercraft and there was a darling little freebie that came with that month's edition...Margaret Sherry's Christmas Cuties stamps and snow globe die! Gotta love free stuff, right? I stamped up the darling little mouse pulling Rudolph on the sled onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock and colored the image to create a winter scene using my alcohol markers. Using the snow globe die cut I cut it once using the white cardstock and then a second time using black. I colored the hearts and the star with my alcohol markers and inserted them into the die cut panel along with the focal panel. Then following the sketch I adhered some Stampin' UP basic black cardstock to my white A2 card base, then a slightly smaller white panel. To that I added my sketch elements from the My Mind's Eye Christmas Wish 6x6 paper pad to the card, matting each piece with more black cardstock for some nice contrast. I stamped the sentiment from the same Margaret Sherry stamp set at the bottom right corner using Versafine onyx black ink and added a few black gems from my stash on either side of the sentiment and some white gel pen details to the critters to finish off this adorably cheery Christmas card!

So very cute, Celeste! I love that plaid panel, but the little critters steal the show, lol. Such pretty coloring! Thanks so much for playing at Sunday Stamps!

This is so very pretty, Celeste. What a sweet, heartwarmingly precious holiday greeting (with a fantastic mix of both colours and patterns).

Happiest one month to go until Santa returns.
