52CCT - Theme ...

.... Morning!  I'm running late with my card for our new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT11-16. Our challenge this week has been picked by Julie and she's gone for a FUNNY SENTIMENT as the theme. Well, I've a few digital images that certainly work for this challenge. Here's my first card:

Naughty Boy List - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Bugaboo Digital - Stella Christmas Boy List; Uniko - Stunning Snowflakes, Simply Said Christmas
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Brilliance - Starlight Silver
Dies: Die-namics - Wonky Stitched Rectangle Stax #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Basic Black; Kanban DP - Silver Stars; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Silver Glitter; Glossy Accents


I really like the Bugaboo Stella digis - the sentiments are always really pithy!! As I get older, I think I'm getting more like Stella :)) I printed her on white card, coloured her with Copics, added silver glitter to her hat and cut her out with a fancy edge die. I layered the image on black card and then attached it to a card which I had covered with grey and silver design paper (which I've had in my stash for ages!). I used a punch to cut out the matching sentiment - which really made me chuckle. I edged it with a silver marker and attached it with dimensional tape.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of the silver/grey DP and on the white panel I added a simple sentiment and some snowflakes.

I used the colours from this week's Merry Monday Challenge - MM#196. I have a couple more cards to finish and will upload them shortly. In the meantime, there's more inspiration on our blog from the rest of the team. Do play along! I look forward to seeing your creations.

Hi! I'm back with the other cards I made for our Funny Sentiment challenge.  They all have a common theme with the Bugaboo digital images.  This one features JJ:

I had fun making a small set of cards with Funny Sentiments!  Do join in with our challenge and to get a good start on your cards for this year's stash! It's so much easier to make your Christmas cards slowly over time than rush at the end of the year.  Have fun!
