Design Team Inspiration
Samantha‘s delightful card is inspired by the movie “Elf”! She combined images from Holiday Helpers, Penguin Party and the cute narwhal from Critters in the Arctic! She set the scene with Stitched Mountain Borders and Snowflake Background Stencils. She spelled out a catch phrase from the movie using Harold’s ABCs.
The song “Driving Home for Christmas” by Chris Rea was Joyce‘s inspiration! She used Car Critters with the Car Critters Christmas Add-On to convey the lyrics of the song. In the background she stenciled Birch Trees. Then she added a greeting with Henry’s ABCs and Car Critters Christmas Add-On sentiments.
Christy‘s favorite holiday movie is “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer”! She illustrated a scene from the movie using Simply Celebrate Winter Critters as “all of the other reindeer”, and Ho-Ho-Holidays to add Santa and Rudolph! Then she used Snowball Fight, Yeti or Not and the Over the Mountain Borders to add frosty scenery.
Catherine used a Purrfectly Wicked cat to stand in for the “Grinch Who Stole Christmas”! Her clever Platform Pop-Up card also features the border of winter houses from Simply Celebrate Winter. The Grinch’s faithful dog Max is from Simply Celebrate Critters and his antler hat is from Furry and Bright. She also used images from Toboggan Together, Ho-Ho-Holidays, Christmas Dreams and Cheery Christmas!
It won’t take long for this whimsical and quirky holiday song to be stuck in your head, playing on a loop. Samantha‘s scene so brilliantly portrays “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” with Joy to All, Christmas Dreams, Den Sweet Den and Tiny Gingerbread. The star of the song is from our mini, Year Four birthday set.
Mimi was also inspired by the movie “Elf”! Her scene from the North Pole features Holiday Helpers as the elves! Her narwhal is from Simply Celebrate Winter Critters and the cabin and trees are from Winter Village. I love how she used Christmas Tree Lot Foiled Washi to fill in the forest in the background! Other sets used in the fun scene are Snowball Fight, Cheery Christmas and Tiny Winter Friends.
Karin‘s favorite song, like Joyce, is “Driving Home for Christmas”. Again, Car Critters and Car Critters Christmas Add-On are the perfect sets to illustrate this song! Karin kept her design beautifully clean and simple!
Jenn used the Henry’s ABCs and Smitty’s ABCs to spell out the name of her favorite holiday song and movie! Her inky pink background features Stitched Windy Backdrop. Rudolph is from Toboggan Together and the sign is from Penguin Party! The sweet little musical note speech bubble is from Peas on Earth!
