I have been working hard on my card for my Bah Humbug Challenge where I am a guest designer for the month of April.
This weeks challenge was to make something with candy canes. I just could not resist this little stamp, such a cutie pie, and holding his candy cane as tight as he can.
The card is made using Green card base, the backing paper is pr
inted from Joanna Sheen House Mouse Inserts CD Rom, as is the insert that I have custom made with my own verse. The image is also from Joanna Sheen and is from her range of House Mouse unmounted Christmas range. Which have being coloured in using Promarkers. The borders at the top and bottom of the page are from my new Cricut cartridge from Martha Stewart which is just adorable. The flowers again at the top and bottom are cut from my Cricut and I have hand made them into roses, the leaves to are from the machine and the swirls are made from funky foam, that I have twisted around a pencil, and heated up slightly to create a tight curl that stays put. The "Merry Christmas" is from stock that I am using up, but again I believe it was cut from the Cricut machine.
