Although the weather has turned sunnier outside, it's time to get back into snow-y sentiments and freezing cold temperatures in your crafting mind to get into the mindset of creating another Christmas Card. We have a new challenge over at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge, and this time we are encouraging you to get out your dies and punches.
As usual there are prizes for winners, this time from our generous sponsors Bugaboo Stamps, Dr Digi and Fred She Said. If you are struggling to get inspired, just hop over to Holly Jolly for plenty of inspiration from the DT, or head over to our sponsors to get inspired by their gorgeous digis.
For my card, I used the adorable Snowball Penguins from Bugaboo. I just love the penguins, you can find lots of digis where they are having wintery adventures. I coloured them with Copics, and added Ice Stickles to the snow balls. I matted them onto a die cut frame. I also die cut the letters for "Merry" and added stickles for a bit of shimmer. For the "Christmas" panel I got out my corner rounder punch. I thought the snowflake paper went perfectly with the penguin's snowy antics.
