Sparkle and Cheer

Happy New Year One Crazy Stamper Fans! 

The hustle and bustle of Christmas is technically over but if you're like me, I don't get to see some of the special people in my life until after Christmas.
My god daughter is one of those special people who I will see soon. 

She loves hedgehogs so I used the "Kovu and Hootie" stamp from the new Woodland Friends new release at High Hopes for her Christmas card. 
Bear with me......this is my last Christmas card to share <smile> for now.


I coloured these cuties using alcohol markers and then cut them out with a circle die. A white gel pen added some polka dots to their scarves and cheeks and some Hero Arts glitter added some bling to the snow. 
Next, I dusted off my Cricut to cut out the red background with a scallop edge to mount my circle on. This was added to some fun plaid paper and a ribbon and some sparkly gumdrops finish it off. 
I added some plaid paper to the outside edge and finished off the inside leaving just enough room to include a personal, handwritten message.

  1. great post and the card is so beautiful. However, I think it would be better if you use satin ribbon instead of the organza ribbon.
