CCT#30: 'Christmas Hog'

CCT theme this week is 'Christmas animals' so nice easy challenge this week with lots of scope.

I was short on time so went for a quick simple card using one of my cute PB stamps (just love the characters drawn by Margaret Sherry, I even have some of the cross stitch kits, but have yet to complete one LOL). Chose this lil piggy as he's quick to colour in and he makes me smile everytime.

Materials:

  • 'Merry wishes' Penny Black stamp
  • Colouring: Promarkers highlighted with twinkling H2o's for added glitter and stickles on his fur.
  • Others: pearlescent green card blank embossed with cuttlebug snowflake folder. Image matted and layered onto pink & black card with faux stitching added around edge with black stardust pen. This has been stuck on with 3d foam to give the card some dimension else it can look a bit flat. Ribbon from stash and sentiment printed off my Dymo and matted onto pink card before sticking down (had to add brads as it wasn't sticking very well over the embossed bit)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the fab DT cards over on CCT and join in - you know you need to get a start on those christmas cards, only 12wks or so to go- where has the time gone this year?!
