Krafty Christmas at Sparkles Christmas Challenge


This month we celebrate our Krafty walk to Christmas with a card theme that Caz chose for the Sparkles Christmas Challenge.  Caz picked the theme...."A Krafty Christmas" and it must feature Kraft cardstock.

I started by coloring my snow family - Hero Arts H099 - Snowpeople Border.  I colored this image using a gift from a fellow crafter, actually artist Jodi Martinez.  She is the queen of Instagram @jodiathome, and her FaceBook page is Jodi At Home.  The pens she gifted me are Chameleon and I must say, they are easy to use and fun too.  They come with instruction and a code so you can see videos of the pens in action.  Thank you Jodi, it was nice meeting you in person....finally! Please check out Jodi's work, it is amazing!  Here's a sample of Jodi's work....for more you are going to have to go to her FaceBook page or to instagram using the info above....



Here's more on what I did to make this card.  I made the sky background on my computer using PrintShop and glued this piece to a slightly larger piece of glitter cardstock.    I fussy cut my snow family and glued it only to the bottom of the sky background.

I wrapped a piece of Kraft cardstock in glittery tulle, wrapped a piece of ribbon around the card, and added a metal snowflake.  I then  mounted it to the card base and glued my graphic piece to it.

My Merry Christmas sentiment is Stampabilities.  I mounted the sentiment to another piece of glitter cardstock and I slid it partly behind one of the snow people.  That's pretty much it for the front of the card.

Now, on to the inside:


As always, my inside is a bit of a repeat of the outside.  This stamp is Stampendous - M011 - Christmas Wish.

Note:  most of my stamps are quite old, as I've been collecting them for years.  I always try to list the stamps I use.  I know that many are retired, but I often still find them on line,  I know they are at  times available if you want to take time to look.

I'm sending wishes for a most crafty month.  I hope you will enter your creations with Sparkles Christmas Challenge.  I'll be looking for them!

Until next time, hugs from my world to yours.
