Festive Friday

I made this card at the beginning of the week and I have been dying to share it with you! If you are new to my blog- I have made it my own personal challenge to post a new holiday project on my blog every Friday. And today's project features tons of stuff from the SU! preview catty!!!

I had to use the CUTE card sketch from the Got Sketch 101 class AGAIN!! I just love it so much!

I colored the nose in with a blender pen and Riding Hood Red Ink and then added Crystal Effect to give it dimension and make it shiny!!!

These buttons are new too and I love that they are the in colors!!! I made some faux threat with a thin strip of Kiwi Kiss cardstock.

Again- I love the idea of using this type of layout for a Christmas card because you can easily include a family pic, a favorite holiday recipe, a gift card, or just a note. Plus- the card fits right into a standard envelope.

The ladies in my downline are going to be making this card (and many more) when we get together next week!

Recipe: (All Stampin' Up!)

Stamps: Deer Friends and Heard from the Heart (both in the preview!)

Paper: Bella Rose DSP, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss

Ink: Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip

Other: Chocolate Chip Marker, Blender Pen, Crystal Effects, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon, Circle punches, scallop circle punch, tab punch, buttons

Thank you for all the birthday wishes. I am going to have to post some RAKS tonight after I get them photographed. And how do my photos look. I did some minor editing in my new Photo Shop Elements!!! BTW- my kids got be another set of copic markers for my bday! I will have to find some time to play with those!

Happy Stampin'!

Super cute Jamie! I am loving the look of those buttons and your card showcases them so well!

I originally came to say that I loved your contest submission over at Pink Cat Studios! The "No Girlz" sign really cracked me up! Great job!
