I think my card today is a funny one. Funny to me, at least! I missed so many Christmas Card Challenges during the time around my Mum's passing. This card is a very late entry for the March 5th theme, chosen by Zoe at Stamping Scene Blog. If you want to check out any of the other entries, the hyperlinks to the others ladies blogs are on my right sideboard.
In keeping with Zoe's theme, and my goal to use a NBUS item on each card this year, I chose this Stampendous Fluffles the Christmas Cat stamp. I bought this stamp last summer at one of my local papercraft store's garage sales for the princely sum of $2.00 A bargain NBUS item!
I coloured the image with pencil crayons and used Gamsol to blend with. I also managed to use up some more snippets. The green, starry DP is from a snippet of 12x12 Doodlebug, Here Comes Santa Claus, Christmas Countdown. The pinky/red stripey paper is from a snippet of 12x12 Doodlebug, Here Comes Santa Claus, Happy Holidays. The card base and the red mat are Bazzill heavy weight card, the shade is Peppermint. I used Fawn Fawn Stitched rectangle dies to cut the image and the stripey mat. Just hand cut the green DP to fit in between.
I added a light coat of Stardust stickles over the branches and Christmas baubles. I couldnot get a photo that captured the sparkle no matter how hard I tried...
Don't forget that the March Rudolph Days Challenge is open till midnight on the last day of the month. I look forward to seeing your entries!
