I made a card for my little niece Sweepie and have one for her little sister, Little Munchkin, in process. I had a lot of fun with this card as I got out my colored pencils, Goo-Gone and blending stumps. I'm a bit out of practice with my coloring technique. I also finally set up my Cricut and used my new Paper Lace cartridge. I love this cartridge as there are so many fun shapes and designs, even ones that are doily-like as the one on this card. It is hard to tell in this photo but I used Stickles to accent the ear and hand muffs. I ran DP through the Cuttlebug and then lightly sanded it to bring out the white core.

I did it! I made a little over 100 Christmas cards and mailed them out to family and friends. I usually don't like to make the same exact design of a card more than twice but this project was not as tedious as I thought it would be. I did do 3 different variations of the card using different Nestabilities shapes.
Stamps: Come to Bethlehem - SU
Paper: WW, Not Quite Navy
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Nestabilities, Stickles, Silver Beads

I'm finishing up my Christmas cards and I took a little break to participate in the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge 252. This week's Featured Stamper is Studbo and her gallery is amazing! I see myself CASing many of her cards.
This card has my typical winter theme of blue, white and silver. Giving you a hint of the colors that I used in my Christmas card this year. After I mail out my Christmas cards I will be posting pics.
