Cupcake 64 & Creative Craft 2


Just a fairly quick Christmas card today - well I've got to add to the (very small) pile! I've followed the sketch at Cupcake Craft and then while I was blog hopping earlier I spotted a new challenge blog, just on their 2nd challenge Creative Craft where they want to see Christmas fun - hopefully a kiss under the mistletoe will fit their challenge :o)

I've used a digistamp from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers with some polar white flowersoft for snow. I think the papers are My Mind's Eye, but I bought them in a local craft shop (Craft Haven) and they didn't have any labels on. The blue cardstock has a subtle sparkly effect that doesn't really show up in the pics, and is one I bought in a big mixed box from Ideal Envelopes who are also local. The snowflake is made with the cuttlebug icicle die with lots of glamour dust added and a card candy dot to finish. I must admit I keep looking at this card and thinking she must be cold! - perhaps I should have given her some tights!

Lisa, I love it. It looks far more complicated to make than it really is, which is always a bonus.

This is so cute, I love it. Love the papers too. I should be doing my DT card for Totally Gorjuss but as usual I am faffing about. All organised just to put together - nuisance you have to stop to eat isn't it?
