Here’s a fun 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 Christmas card using the new set in the Holiday mini called Smitten Mitten. The set has a matching die that makes cute mittens with all sorts of patterns and accessories. I used the knit trim across the top and a snowflake to decorate. The sentiment is from Snowflake Sentiments and die cut using Karen Burniston’s Katherine Label die in white and Pool Party. The patterned paper is Stamping Ups Quilted Christmas Cardstock pack.
And inside is Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle die and her Winter Animals dies. I used the penguins to make a scene with the Nature’s Edges die – penguins making snowmen with the snowman watching. What a fun card!
There’s still time to join me on October 7th for my World Card Making Day Christmas Stamp a Stack. Check here for more information. Hugs, Fran
This week’s challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges is Back to School which always makes me think, red, white and blue and Labor Day. This image is a digital stamp from Sassy Cheryl. The stars in the background are made using Stamping Up’s Oh My Stars embossing folder. The image was colored with Copic markers.
On the inside I used Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle die (again, yes I know!) and her wonderful Words 2, Birthday Die Set. The little stars are attached to fishing line so it shakes when opened. I also used Karen Burniston’s Nature Edges dies for the bottom of the area where you write your greeting. Enjoy celebrating and I hope you’ll join in this challenge! Hugs, Fran

Today’s challenge at Crazy 4 Challenge is a sketch challenge! I used Stamping Up’s Tranquil Tulips on the front. This card is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/4. And here is the sketch –
And when you open the card……
I used Karen Burniston’s Snowman Twist Circle die, opening at a different angle (!) with a butterfly. You can do anything with this die 🙂 Join the challenge this week by using the sketch for inspiration! Hugs, Fran
