Sentiment Only for Crafting Musketeers Midway Reminder Challenge


Hiya peeps

A DT card today for Crafting Musketeers, using a single topper by Kanban & part of one sheet of foiled card from the same pack. Unfortunately I cant remember what the name of the kit is, just that it is from KANBAN.  The one backing sheet that I had I just with the topper and cut 2 striips each 2 inch wide gluing them to either side of the landscape side of the card base, from papermill direct. adding the 3 different layers of ribbons. The large red base ribbon and the  ribbon are from Red Happy Christmas word are both from Crafty Ribbons but I dont know where I bought the white & silver snowflakes ribbon but it is sooo gorgeous.

Snowman Character Cut Card.... For 2 Design Team's Challenge Entries


I must apologise for this post being late, Ive had problems uploading the photos
I wanted to show you. Its taken me 3 days to sort my laptop out to enable me to 
upload this post to Bloglovin' so it is visible to everyone to see that searches for it.

Hiya peeps,

Today I am showing you a card that I made just by enlarging a digi stamp from
Bugaboo and he's called Lil Snowman Star

This card was made for IWO blog challenges, both have the same end result.

It was made for the Crafty Ribbons Challenge #138 of which the theme is a HAND CUT CHARACTER or  SHAPED CARD  with ribbon and the PRIZE is a


I also made this card for a new Design Team called Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra   


It is a post with a linky for you to enter any Christmas cards that you make - the theme will always be 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc as long as the end result is a Christmas card.

Challenges will end at 22:00 UK time on the last day of the month.

Making the card was fairly easy. I got 2 sheets of A4 white card & made them into an 8x8in card base.
I just enlarged the snowman in Windows photo viewer which when you click on
"print" it comes up in options to print the image from one A4 size printed image
down to having 35 small prints!!
I printed this out in the A4 size but not fitting it to the page size so it was just under that. I then glued the digi image onto the base & then cut around the outer edge leaving the right hand side almost complete so it was still able to open as a card.
I used new alcohol markers from Harmony to colour snowman and added Stickles glue glitter to colour the ear muffs and the spinner top of the hanging star (well thats what I think it is) lol
The last thing to do was to add the green polka dot grosgrain ribbon. This  width is 25mm which unfortunately is not available anymore but there is a 15mm width of the same design available HERE
