merry wishes

i'm totally loving this card i made for the current CAS(E) this sketch challenge! :)

i used mama elephant polar pals stamp set - yahoo for starting christmas cards early! i make my own christmas cards, and i need to pace myself since i create different cards for each person! (i LOVE the idea of mass producing the same card for everyone, especially a very special card, but i just lose interest and get bored! so that's me in a nutshell - i create more work for myself!)

anyway, here's the card:

i paper pieced those cute as can be penguins and then cut them so they appeared to be peaking out frmo behind the washi tape! ha ha!i also made a custom sentiment by masking some of the provided sentiments! a simple tap on my staz-on ink pad and vwa-la! you can stamp right onto washi tape! :)

i added a few sequins for...fun and also because i have a slight addiction to them! :)
that whole base was then popped up onto the a white card base i had liberally sprayed with mr heuy's shine mist! to add a little more sparkle! :)

so that's it! 
do you make your own christmas cards? and if so, do you make one or two layouts or 1000 different cards like i do? i'm so interested to know!

  1. This is SUPER adorable!!! I make my own Christmas cards. I enter a Challenge called Festive Friday and enter it religiously so I can have a head start on Christmas. This card is so great! Love the Washi, the characters and the design is so intentional that is does not look like trying to fit any sketch, I love it when cards come together like that!! I am pinning this right now on pinterest as it is so darn cute! (and was my personal FAVE)

    -happy crafting you maven you!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
