Christmas Card Club - Sentiment is the Focus

Carol at CM Designs chose our theme of Sentiment as the Focus for this fortnight's Christmas Card Club. I was happy with this theme as sentiment focused cards are always such fun to make!

Still saving my hands from extra work, so I chose to use a VOS Bo Bunny, Twas The Night Before Christmas  sticker.

This is such a quick and easy card. I used a Spellbinders fancy die to mat the sticker with a snippet of green card. I used a couple more snippets of red and of white card to cut additional layers of this die and I am happy with the outcome. I did copy and print  the sticker so that I could fussy cut the tree and presents. I popped them forward over the tree on the sticker for a bit or dimension.


I used a 5x7 card base and covered it with some navy snowflake DP from that same Bo Bunny line. I used the same DP for the inside and then used the Spellbinder die again, to cut a mat for the nbus sentiment.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

1. Christmas Card Club -Sentiment Focused
2. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
