Muse ChristmasVisions #40 and Merry Monday #200

IMG_0050


One quick Christmas card for two challenges. I don't use patterned paper very often but I have so much of it. In fact I love patterned paper but personally struggle to use it. My card is inspired by Muse Christmas Visions and the 200th Merry Monday challenge.

Here is the inspiration by Chriss Blagrave for Muse Christmas Visions:



and I chose to include a snowman for Merry Monday's 200th challenge:




I use Doodlebug's Santa's Express patterned paper and Paper Smooches Cool Dudes stamps and dies for my card. My sentiment was die cut was previously die cut with white cardstock so to make it match I coloured it with Copic markers! An easy tip and I was able to use the same red I used for the snowman--all matchy matchy!

Awww! What a darling little snowman! And I'm loving that sweet Doodlebug dp. You should use your dp more often; this turned out so cute!! I'll bet you could mass produce this one fairly easily enough, too. Fun Christmas card. Have a great Sunday. (I'm home from church with ANOTHER YKW...rats!) Bev

I'm like you in that I don't use designer papers that often. The designer paper is so pretty with the tiny snowman! Thanks for playing our celebration challenge at Merry Monday!

Really sweet, Tracey. I often forget I still have a drawer full of patterned papers, but this card by Chris is a great incentive for me to use up some of my papers.

I love patterned paper but so many CAS designs leave it in the stack. This challenge was great for using it and your paper and darling snowman are perfect.
