Merry Christmas

Hello, thanks for swinging by today.
I would love to show you a rather simple card, using just 1 sheet of 6x6 Designer Paper. Keeps the bulk to a minimum :-)

The sketch for this card is by Caz for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge. If you do not know the measurements, in memory cause you have made a card like this before… here is what i did, i used some scrap paper and cut those into my stripes first, arranged them on my card base and than cut into my precious Design Paper.
Not sure if you can tell.. Tilda is cut out and popped up onto some spacer. Hahahaha doesn’t it look like i wanted it to be this way??? Gee i almost had to toss this card. I was finished.. her hair was dark brown and her dress was “off white” really i must say i almost liked it that way better. Than i thought…ooh i fix one more time over the lines in her face and for some reason the ink on her eyes smeared all over her nose. It really looked horrible. I tried to fix it but it got even worse. So… this is how i ended up with a card like that :-)
Supplies: Tilda with star ornament
Sentiment: Stampin up
Papers: 7 Gypsies 6x6 pack
Tools: Spellbinders (
circle and scallops), Doohickey for border (old Swedish lace), flakes are by Marianne Design (Norwegian star)
Coloring: Copics and watercolors in background
beautiful lush red crinkle ribbon can be found at Sharon’s ribbon store!!!
Email Sharon at to order, including state/zip OR country
Sharon also has some 7Gypsie 6x6 papers, just not sure if she has the one, in stock i used on my card today.
Don’t forget to enter you name into my Letraset PROmarker candy :-)
