Evening everyone! Hope we're all well? I want to just say a special thank you for all the lovely comments I had about my first Sugar Nellie design team card-means a lot! I've had a busy few days, lots of fun busy things though!
When my Sugar Nellie dt kit popped through the post on Saturday it was like all my birthdays had come at once! Along with the super delish Autumn kit I also got some Manga Christmas kids-oh I adore them! They're such fun images for Christmas, and something totally different, I just love em! So on my card today I have used the gorgeous Miss Clause-how cute is her little santa outfit!
For the fur trim on her clothes I thought a bit of sparkle was in order and used some Shimmerz Bling-gorgeous stuff! The papers are more yumminess from MME Merry Days of Christmas. Ooo before I forget I'll tell ya about the note paper I added to the card....Now I don't (yet) have the punch that gives the ripped binding effect so I tore some out of an old notbad I'd bound myself with the Bind It all then crumpled it, inked it with distress ink (frayed burlap) and used a prima stamp to add the lines.
The layout of the card is from this weeks sketch at The Corrosive Challenge blog, first time playing there! I'm also gonna enter it at LaLaLa Land who want us to 'embellish it', Everybody Art who want us create a shabby look (think my distressing counts!), Papertake Weekly who want us to 'fake it' and I did fake the punch for my notepaper so think that counts:) Oooo I do love it when something I make works for a few challenges!
Stuff: Sugar Nellie stamp-Miss Clause buy her and her friends here, copic sketch and ciaos to colour, shimmerz bling in gold glimmer from here, MME Merry Days of Christmas from here, metallic gold crocheted ribbon/lace from here, sewing machine, su sentiment, flowers from cuttlebug die, pearls from stash.
So have you ordered your Christmas Mangas yet? They're flying off the shelves! I think this is my 6th christmas card made-at this rate I might actually be quite organised and not in a mad rush in December but I doubt it;) Tis all part of the fun isn't it?!
Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you might leave me-they make my day! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for my Stamp Something card:) Enjoy your evening! Huggles xxx
