Merry Christmas

 Hi All

Welcome back to the latest challenge at Merry Little Christmas Challenge

This is a great challenge for all you Christmas card lovers who make Christmas cards the year round.

The Merry Little Christmas Challenge goes til June 15 which gives you plenty of time to enter your card into the challenge. Also great place to get some more inspiration. 

This card is fairly simple to make.

The How To:

  • I started out with a 6X6 white card base. 
  • Next I cut a 5 3/4"X 5 3/4" layer out of shimmery dark blue CS and attached on the card front base.
  • Next layer is white CS again. Cut it 5 1/2"X 5 1/2" square. Now find  the center on each of the 4 sides and position a border punch so that the center of the punch area is on the center of each of the sides of the white CS layer . Punch that out. Do on all 4 sides. This will leave a white area on the 4 corners not punched.  
  • Those 4 corners  on my CS are 1 1/2" square.  I cut 4 square pieces 1 3/8" out of that dark blue CS and using a plain snowflake punch, I punched a snowflake in the center of each of those 4 small squares. Attach each of the squares with the snowflake shape punched out, over the white corners you will have a slight white border. 
  • You will now have a 3" white square in the center, Cut 2 2 7/8" square out of the dark blue CS and attach that over the white center. 
  • I stamped and fussy cut my kitty image, colored it and popped it up in the center on top of the dark blue square
  • I added the sentiment and some glitter and the card is finished
What I used:
  • Christmas Kitten and Mouse - Creative Vision (I did not use the mouse)
  • Sentiment - Woodware - Christmas Strips
  • Copic Markers
  • Martha Stewart Border punch - Snowflake Trim
  • Martha Stewart Punch - Medium Alpine Snowflake
  • White CS
  • Shimmer Dark Blue CS
  • Glitter
  • Memento Ink - Nautical Blue
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you will give this look a try. 
Please remember the Merry Little Christmas Challenge has begun. The challenge will continue til June 15, so you have plenty of time to make a Christmas card/project and submit it. I'd love to see your creation. 

See you soon
