A Sugarplum Christmas

Yay!I’ve made a second Christmas card!

For my card I’ve used the sweet Santa Emma from C C Designs.She’s been coloured with Promarkers and I’ve added some Polar White Flower Soft on the trims of her clothing to give a furry effect.I’ve die cut her using the Out-of-the-Box technique to allow her feet to dangle.I got to use my new Martha Stewart edge punch that I managed to pick up for the bargainous £7.99 from my local craft warehouse.I usually go for traditional colours when making  Christmas cards but thought I’d be more adventurous and give some different colour combos a whirl this year!

The design is based on this card but because this stamp is bigger I’ve started with a 6″ x 6″ base.I was so relieved to find some  finally back in stock at my local craft warehouse. I’ve making my own and really didn’t fancy doing so for all my Christmas cards!!
