Sylvie at Gibmiss blog chose Cute as the theme for our Christmas Card Club. If you would like to see the other ladies creations, I have hyperlinks up on my right sideboard. If you would like to join our fortnightly Christmas Card Club, just drop me an email.
Several years ago, a girl friend let me stamp off this cute image. I had never coloured it as my stamping skills were very poor that day and parts of the image did not stamp clearly. But I am on a mission to use up my VOS items (Very Old Stash) and so I carefully filled in the missing parts of the image with a micro fine black pen. The furry trim on the hats is not quite right as I made a boo boo and made the lines too thick. I drew in a lot more lines in varying thickness to try to hide that mistake! I am not sure of the manufacturer. I think it is a Stampin' Up image but not positive. If you recognize it, please let me know the name.
I coloured this image up with copic pens and die cut with a Spellbinders label die. A snippet of silver mirri card gives it a a bit of shimmer and since I liked the look of that, I then added a very small snippet of silver ribbon as a border round the Echo Park Dots and Stripes DP.
I do not know the name of the kraft word background. It is a snippet of a 12x12 scrapbook page. Before I started making cards, I was a scrapbooker. I did not mark manufacturer or name on my snippets as I had no need to at that time. Now that I make cards, too, I sure wish I had developed that habit years earlier!
The hessian ribbon is from Michael's. It is another snippet and has the luxury of being self adhesived. What a treat.
Hope you like my take on a cute Christmas Card. It was fun to make and I thank Sylvie for the inspiration.
