Xmas Card (LMMS Challenge #153)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today a new challenge started at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge Blog. It's #153, Anything Goes Challenge.

For this challenge I made this Xmas Card.

For my card I used an adorable LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Hannah' digital stamp, the brand new image to the store. There are more new images released to the LMMS shop today. Check them here. So cute! :o)

I printed the image on a Canson XL Mixed Media 300 g Paper. I watercolored it with Distress Inks and colored red stripes with Stabilo Markers. My first intention was to make one layer card, but I wasn't satisfied how I colored shade around Hannah, so I fussy cut her out, colored edges with black marker, glued 3-D foam squares on her back and she was ready to be placed on a card. :o)

I love CAS cards, but this time I decided to go with a more busy card. :o)

A while ago, my friend Zrinka sent me a lovely snowflake ribbon. Material is very similar to felt, but it's not. :o) I cut three snowflakes from the ribbon and glued them on a Kraft top folded card base.

Then I wrote a sentiment 'Merry Christmas' in 8 languages on my computer using Impact Label Font, printed them on a white cardstock paper, cut them out, colored edges with black markers and got lovely labels, as if I had label maker. I glued 3-D foam tape on every label and glued them and the image on the card.

Lastly, I embellished the card with white enamel dots and my card was finished. :o)

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 139 mm (3 1/2" x 5 1/2")
